I feel like I’ve been weirdly into “controversial” material this week.
Every time I saw an article that sounded like it was going to argue a specific point – or that seemed like it might have content that would rile people up – I suddenly really wanted to read it.
As a result, this week’s bonfire is pretty fire-y. I guess I’ll attribute it to the high 80-degree temps in San Diego this week…
I hope you enjoy!
I’ve always gravitated towards the term “thought leader”. For some reason, it has just always “sounded right”. …or maybe I’ve just never taken the necessary time to think any different? Lucky for you, Brian Clark over at CopyBlogger has (of course he has!)
Gary Korisko from Boost Blog Traffic lays it all on the table in this post about fighting for the attention of online readers as a blogger. Apparently, I’m in a war (I believe it, so thank you if you’re reading this right now). Great post, great insights, and even a “doozie” if you stick around for the end…
Seth Godin doesn’t allow comments on his blog. You probably already know this. If he did, I still wouldn’t have left a comment, even though I feel this is yet another short, to-the-point, powerful post. It will take you like 30 seconds to read.
Sean Ogle from Location180 describes a pretty specific type of person at the beginning of this post, and follows that description up with “If you’re one of those people, then this post is for you.” I definitely am not one of those people, however, I still found value in reading this post because I think the ideas and advice presented are solid. So whether you believe you’re one of those people or not, I hope you’ll still read it.
