Ad Age called me a social media guru

guru_nanak_os07I’m a social media activator
A social media prognosticator

But am I a social media guru?
The answer to that one’s a definite noo

I’m a social media doctor
On occasion an imposter

But am I a social media guru?
I’m telling you it just ain’t true

Been a social media analyst
And a social media panelist

But am I a social media guru?
Of course I’m not.  And neither are you.


Maybe it’s just that I’ve never wanted to be a member of any club that would have me as a member.  But based on what I’ve seen of people who actually label themselves social media “gurus,” I can tell you I don’t want to be one of them.  So, even though Ad Age, no doubt out of sincerity, bestowed that label on me this week, pay them no heed.  I’m just out here trying to do the same thing you’re doing.  Listening, learning, sharing, connecting.  Sorry for the lame thyme.  Was easier than writing a real post.
