I’ve long admired Seth Godin’s writings and blog posts. Today’s post got me thinking, since it covers situations I’ve needed to respond to, and on many different sides. The toxic antidote to goodwill Seth points out: “Anyone who has done the math will tell you that word of mouth is the most efficient way to […]
I’d forgotten about Anil’s post to Medium a “little ways back”, so I was able to look with fresh eyes. “The Year I Didn’t Retweet Men” I really appreciate his efforts to amplify responsibly. And have tried, over the years, to take the same idea to heart. I may not have Anil’s reach, but I […]
I’ve been exploring my work as a blogger. Remarkably unfocused, but I’ve had s lot of fun. For several years I was the blogger in residence for a real estate team. Otherwise, it’s been about fun.
