The Art of Conversation

The Art of Conversation is quite simple!  It is a matter of creating something worth talking about!!

So what causes a great conversation piece?  Anything that gets other people interested enough to want to have a conversation with you and anyone else who chimes in!

So you may be saying: easier said than done!  Not really.  Watch.  Let’s talk about social media, shall we?  See, I asked a question and in your reading this, you probably answered!  There you have it.  The start of a conversation!

And the point is……?  It isn’t about you writing all over your wall, say on facebook.  It is about other people commenting about or liking what you posted.  A successful post is one that has enough folks intrigued enough that they contribute to the discussion.  I say that I really like when I see more of my friends posting on my page than me!  Then I know that they came and visited and re-connected!

So here are some tips to get you on your way having fun and fulfilling conversations, especially on the internet through social media sites.

  • Ask a question
  • Provoke thought
  • Acknowledge your friends and followers
  • Touch someone’s heart
  • Hang a picture or video whether serious or funny, home grown or professional

For example . . .

Asking questions:  What was the best thing that happened to you today?  Some days you just want to ….?  Anybody see the movie __________?

Provoke thought:  This week, I will …. , If you could do anything you wanted, what would you do?  What is the best thing that happened to you today?

Acknowledge people.  Hey, just look for reasons to complement someone and give them a ‘shout out’ to them on your page.  Birthdays are the easiest to acknowledge, by the way.

Touch someone’s heart:  Watch This

Hang something on your wall:

And while you are at it, just have fun with it!!  Yes it is that simple.
