Okay. Let’s just say admit he always nails it. This inspirational, succinct post about posting by Seth Godin, delivered with aplomb, reminds me to state the obvious. As ever.
I always reference/recommend blogs in my workshops. Did today. They have rejuvenated my reading. They are accessible, pacy and akin to emails in convenience. They have sign-posted outstanding resources and developed ideas exponentially. Far, far quicker then previous methods of communication of ideas.
They are fun, addictive, enthusiastic and interesting. I have learned loads. And met some great creative people offline.
Still many of my clients continue to dismiss them as insular nonsense, appealing to a narrow demographic. Are we bothered?
All I can add to Seth is that if I, as a working mother of two small children with a pretty full-on social life, can manage to post (occasionally), anyone can.
question. Abstract. If no-one reads your blog, how are you defining audience
and shaping your thoughts? A bit John Berger, I know, but if art needs an audience,
do blogs require a reader?
It is still about people. The feedback and interaction will always encouarge us to make just that one post.
