Seth Godin's riffs on marketing, respect, and the ways ideas spread.
In the Summer of 2000, I was introduced to Seth Godin's writings when I received a copy of his Permission Marketing from a fellow webmaster. After that, one by one, I would receive more of Seth Godin's books through my work with BzzAgent.
My very first blog post was over four years ago on December 22, 2004. Looking back to that blog post, what resonates with me today is this:
... it is important to have relevant and current content. Market or promote your blog by trading links ... use a lot of outbound links.It makes just as much sense today that blog posts should be topical, relevant, and spot-on to be worthy of readers. Additionally, a blog achieves more credibility when other bloggers are backlinking to the blog.
May I recommend that you read Seth's blog post for today AND that you also take some time to read the Wikipedia entry for a blog. I've been a fan of Wikipedia for eons; there is really no other place comparable on the internet where a reader can find such a conglomeration of information that rivals the old hard-copy enclycopedias. Reading about the history and evolution of the blog reveals some amazing facts about bloggers.
A blog can be mightier than the sword! A blog can lead to 'other things.' Take Julie Powell for example. She wrote a blog about her experiences mastering the cooking of Julia Child. That blog led to a book, which led to a movie! That's pretty cool I think.
