Social Flooring Index: Blogs - Beta

Social Flooring Index Wordle from Flooring The Consumer
Social Flooring IndesAnd, now, part 3 of the Social Flooring Index: Blogs -- brought to you by Flooring The Consumer!

I started out with The Social Flooring Index - Beta Version: Twitter, which introduced you to Flooring The Consumer's new Social Flooring Index and tracked flooring-related Twitter activity. Next, in Social Flooring Index: Facebook - Beta, I shared with you flooring-related Facebook activity. In this post, I list flooring-related blogs.

It's exciting. I've noticed a great deal more social activity in the past 6+ months in flooring. Through the Social Flooring Index, I plan to capture who in flooring is doing what with social tools and share that with you on a regular basis.

I'm interested with the Beta versions of the Social Flooring Index in completeness. If you know of an organization in the flooring industry taking part in social media who isn't listed, would you let me know?

As with the Twitter listing, to rank blogs I've used HubSpot's website grader. As the Social Flooring Index evolves, I may add other parameters.

Once again, I welcome your comments, feedback and suggestions.
Special thanks to Shannon Bilby who suggested missing Twitter accounts and blogs for these listings.

[Note: I discovered that Carpet One Floor & Home has a YouTube channel as does Empire Today. And, many flooring retailers promote themselves on YouTube via the YellowPages.com YouTube channel or YellowBook's channel.]

We don't have a YouTube "channel" per se, but I've got one video up. More to come...

P.S. Okay, okay. I'm joining Facebook today. You win.

C. B. Whittemore said...

Alan, thanks for sending me the link to you YouTube channel. I'll add that to the list. And, let me know what happens with Facebook.... :)

Jeff Booth said...

C.B. I just found your blog through the social flooring index. I think your blog is a terrific resource. Well done! Jeff

Robert said...

Wow! Thanks a lot for taking a look at, and ranking, our BuildDirect blogs. I'd be interested to know something about how you're rating them. I'm always looking for ways to make the blogs more appealing to readers.

Any pointers would be appreciated!

@ me on Twitter at @BuildDirect sometime! And feel free to check out our YouTube Channel and Facebook fan page too!

Thanks again!

C. B. Whittemore said...

Jeff, thanks very much for your feedback. Great to find yours, too.

C. B. Whittemore said...

Robert, I'll add your YouTube channel to my list, and I've already included you on the Facebook and Twitter lists. It's terrific to discover your rich resources and I look forward to learning more.

here's a link I found today

C. B. Whittemore said...

Spectacular, thanks for the addition.

Karin H. said...

Hi C.B.

Thanks for the link to our furniture blog - younger than our FAQ & News blog on wooden flooring: http://faq.woodyoulike.co.uk.
We also have a latest addition to our sites: manuals with downloadable PDF's for DIY-ers and comment boxes for questions: http://manuals.woodyoulike.co.uk/
(The latter is created with ScreenSteps Dekstop and published in ScreenSteps Live - two absolutely wonderful tools for Social Media IMHO)

Karin H. (Keep It Simple Sweetheart, specially in business)

C. B. Whittemore said...

Karin, oops! I meant to add your flooring site. Will do so immediately. Thanks for noticing. I hope you are well.

Reminder: Please, no self-promotional or SPAM comments. Don't bother if you're simply trying to build inauthentic link juice. Finally, don't be anonymous: it's too hard to have a conversation. Thanks, CB
