I decided to try something new today and share how I got to where I am today in social media.  Anyone who is willing to learn, put in the long hours, and do the hard work can achieve this too.  In this post I will show you all my social networks as they are today and what my goals are for 2013.  In Part 2 I will go over my 2013 goals for multiple revenue streams related to this.  This is the start of a series that I will update at least monthly so stay tuned!

My journey started 1 year ago (Fall of 2011).

I had 9 Twitter followers and about 50 Facebook friends (mostly from high school and college days – sound familiar?).  Pinterest was new, Instagram just a fluke, Google+ (huh?).  What is this “FourSquare” thingy?

And my blog, PeterTrapasso.com was a nice piece of prime but undeveloped online real estate.

Fast forward to today; Now I have 20,000 Twitter Followers, 100% REAL (98% Active), engaged people too!

Kred is a competitor to Klout and probably #2 in social scoring.  I just received an email from CEO Andrew Grill today.  As you can see below, I am now a Kred Social Media VIP.  I am not exactly sure what that means, but it sounds good.  I assume that it puts me somewhere below Community Leader and Top Influencer.  My score is 773 (out of 1000) for Influence.  So far, so good.

PeerIndex rounds out the top 3 in social scoring.  My score of 73 (out of 100) matches my Klout score and that makes sense to me.

Trustcloud is a beta service that I just joined.    I believe that it is a measure of my trustworthiness based upon a scale of 1 to 1000.  All I am waiting on is my Trustcloud postcard now.
