*Obviously, this did not end up happening as life gets in the way as usual*

As you can see, my company’s domain have now been redirected to this blog. For the time being, this will be the base of operation for any Metamorphosis Multimedia related news and announcements. In time, all the company blog posts from 2008 will also be migrated over and combined with existing entries.

The general direction of M3 is to focus on social media as a distribution channel for all sorts of content including but not limited to videos, blog articles, promotions, product features, tutorials, and various other useful resources.

The idea is to post at least once a day. Somehow I need to dicipline myself in such a way that allow for a sustainable content stream that keeps people coming back to check out my latest boring antics.

If you don’t see a new blog from me here on any given day, go check on my Chinese blog (if you read Chinese). Alternatively you could go to my new setup at Posterous where I’ll be aggregating both of my blogs into one place at some point. I still love WordPress. It will always be my base.

For someone who claims to be a social media specialist, the amount of inactivity I manage to accumulate is staggering. Sure, I’ve been busy with meetings, setting up blogs for clients, exploring various channels of income, advocating the importance of financial health, and immersing myself in my new company, etc…

If I were here to come up with excuses, I could go on all day long. But what I want to emphasize more is the simple truth that traffic comes from a sustained presence in multiple channels. In other words, if you show up enough, eventually someone is going to take a look and maybe you’ll have something they want.
