The Formspring.me Plunge Tuesday April 20, 2010

So this has been sitting on my radar since SXSW, but I just haven’t had the time to follow through with it. So, I figured why not just get it done on a Tuesday morning.

Anyways, I have officially taken the plunge on the new social network Formspring.me.

Essentially, the site is a vehicle for people to answer questions publicly, no matter how ridiculous the question is. @Techcrunch has a good synopsis of the site here.

For me Formspring.me is a three fold thing.

1) I’m incredibly curious about it and I think it has great potential. Especially for Celebrities, Brands and Politicians (Calgary City Council, I’m looking at you guys). 2) It’s the first adopter syndrome, I love finding out about upcoming networks and I always find it pivotal to stake a claim to a new network incase it explodes.

And 3) after the success of Leave your Job, Start An Agency, I wanted to find a way to continue the conversation and spew out even more advice for people going out on their own. I’m quite open with the struggles I’ve endured and if anything I say can help someone out, that’s a win-win for both of us.

So this looks like the perfect tool.

Sure there might be elements of it that are quite egotistical and douchie, but it’s a great idea and if you are wondering about web design or starting a business, please hit me up. I’ll even buy you a cookie…
