I don’t know Seth Godin personally, and I expect that most people in classics have never heard of him, which is a pity. He’s a very talented marketer and an insightful observer of why marketing is the way it is. He attributes his success to his having faithfully posted to his blog almost every single day for the last seven years. I am going to try to take his model as a challenge, although I am going to have to change two things about my modus operandi if I am to have any chance of succeeding:
(1) I’m going to have to actually implement the routines that I have supposedly put in place to make myself more organized and productive.
(2) I’m going to have to write quickly–no revisions, no letting an idea marinate on and on, no getting sidetracked while checking a fact.
But what about the fact that I have no subscribers? Seth said it doesn’t matter (http://upmarket.squidoo.com/2012/02/08/we-are-all-weird/).
