Blogger Socialites: Sansone, Sherman, Snell, Soldera

A shout-out of thanks to Kristin Gorski, who once again came through with a batch of profiles for our Blogger Social registrants. We’re closing in on the two-week countdown now!

Mike Sansone is a “Conversation Conductor” who specializes in helping businesses incorporate blogging into their marketing mix. He is also a community builder online and in the brick-and-mortar world. When Mike worked at America Online, HeyMax, Ignite Sports Media, and Real Fans Sports Network, he successfully grew their online communities. Mike also regularly volunteers in his local community and was even an assistant pastor at a church.

Now working as an independent business consultant, this Blog Coach has created a “blogger’s blog” out of ConverStations. Mike’s conversational, informative writing is a great resource. His detailed, useful posts on everything from social media mainstays like “blog literacy” and “blog strategy” to those about online business basics will enlighten.

By the way, does anyone want to register the domain for Mike? If so, it just might make his day. See why by clicking here.

linda-sherman-150.jpgLinda Sherman
After reading Linda Sherman’s “About” page, you’ll feel like you’ve been immersed in the culture of Japan’s business world. Linda is the former CEO of both Barilla Japan and ClubMed, and is past president of Sara Lee Japan. On her blog It’s Different For Girls, Linda writes that her “claim to fame in Japan” is her launch of Zima there through a viral campaign which had huge, unprecedented impact in the marketplace. Having lived and worked extensively in Japan, she speaks and reads Japanese and has also managed to take on the French, Italian and Spanish languages, as well.

Linda currently runs the Courage Group with her husband, award-winning graphic designer Ray Gordon, where they specialize in bringing cutting-edge design and innovative marketing to their clients. They are currently agents for Singelringen, an online community dedicated to living the single lifestyle with pride. Linda also heads up Marketing for the Commercial Marine Biology Institute and Abalone Farming International.

nathan-snell-150.jpgNathan Snell
Who is Nathan Snell? For those of you attending Blogger Social ‘08 in New York City, you will find out first hand. In the meantime, I have gleaned a bit about him while reading his blog The Technopian: Your Guide for Cyberculture and Social Media:

° Nathan loves business, marketing, technology and creativity. In fact, he may be completely obsessed with them.
° He is an enterprising young fellow: “enterprising”, in that he is social networking site designer and developer AND a social media marketer; “young”, in that he is just in his senior year at the University of North Carolina in Wilmington; and “enterprising” again, in that he’s majoring in “business administration with a concentration in entrepreneurship and business development”.
° He is also nap-liking, self-proclaimed extrovert who thinks that “Outback’s Bloomin’ Onions are delicious.”

Nathan’s energy and interests are extensive. He is already making waves in social media development circles. To read more about “The Snell”, do visit his “About” page.

paul-soldera-150.jpgPaul Soldera
Paul Soldera’s blog Insight By Design covers everything he is currently passionate about in his work. He writes about data, information, measurement, design and “the occasional start-up”. Originally from New Zealand, Paul now resides in New York and has been in the U.S. for about five years.

Most recently, Soldera was an Account Director at Hall and Partners, a company which focuses on brand and communications research. For the last eight months, he has been working on getting a software company off the ground with a good friend. As this dynamic startup duo invests their time in their fledgling enterprise, Paul continues to freelance.

Thanks to an interesting note on his blog’s sidebar, I’ve now discovered the comedy show “Flight of the Conchords”. He is NOT in that band, by the way. At least, that’s what Paul claims. If he takes out a guitar and starts serenading us at Blogger Social, however, it might start a whole new conversation on what he’s really doing in New York. 😉
