Comments on: Inside Seth Godin's Blogging Philosophy



Let's face it. Seth Godin's blog is a wondrous thing. It's consistently No. 1 or No. 2 on the Ad Age Power 150. More important, it's pure insight. At least once a day, every day, there's a little homily on marketing, or brands, or quality, or something el

I have heard of blogger Seth Godin. He always has something interesting to say. I think that is important. Some bloggers are so dull without any new, clever or intellectual insights. I think Seth Godin's following statement sums it up: "It's not where you go, it's what you look for."

This is a great interview and I admire Seth for his clean philosophical approach to blogging. It's worth noting that if you are an 'expert' or an authority in your particular discipline then blogging is easy - posts just flow out of you, and if people agree with your opinions your blog traffic will grow organically. My discipline is music. I post once or twice every single day, weekends and vacations included. It's not a chore, it's not a business it's simply an extension of my working day. I offer insights and best of all according to my many readers, I offer free and legal MP3s.. So, no clutter but an offering of gifts. Lewis Hyde would be proud. http://pampelmoose.com

The world would be less littered with crappy stuff if agencies and clients made a joint agreement to only publish/broadcast/send out work that was created with that in mind: "...to create something that feels like a gift..." Oh, and while we're at it, I'd say that quite a few bloggers would have something to learn from it as well. :: h :: http://www.guidebook.se

I love Seth. As far as I can tell he's real and I trust him so much. To me the best part about him is not his wealth of knowledge and insight but his never-ending encouragement. Like Gandhi (bald head and all), Seth personifies the mantra, "Be the change you wish to see in the world." He is and he wants us to be too. Inspiring indeed.

One of the reasons I started to write my own blog http://www.dearadvertisin.blogspot.com

Seth is truly the sage of our time. He dispatches wisdom, insights and navigational tools to avoid marketing potholes. However, his advice of 'not eating bacon' is absolutely unacceptable. Crispy bacon is delicious and healthy (compared to eating a can of Crisco). Oh well, everyone misfires once in awhile. http://www.thelintscreen.com

Oh my, how I agree with Seth: "First, why is it that once business gets involved, it's assumed it's okay to do things that aren't fun or rewarding or kind or generous, but only things that make money? And second, why is it assumed that people can't do business-like activities without getting paid?" I've been writing my personal blog since 2006 (Los Cuadernos de Julia), it focuses on Arts&Culture, with photographs and videos as the added bonus. I mention this because I wasn't using Seth's blog for any sort of inspiration - I didn't even know about it when I started blogging myself. But I was striving to "find my voice", to create my own presence, and to simply do what I love doing, and by what I hear from readers, I succeeded. It is important that you are passionate about what you have/want to say. I absolutely share Seth's philosophy, and, considering that I arrived to my conclusions without his influence, it means that it is possible to be a blogger like him. Many thanks for the interview.

I'm told I become irritable if I don't get my daily dose of Seth Godin and Drayton Bird.

Seth writes a fantastic blog. He is correct that not everyone should write a blog the way he does. Many people feed off the comments which Seth doesn't allow. Some blogs update less frequently but have longer posts. As every blogger should do, Seth brings his unique perspective to the world daily. He brings wealth to the world by his insight and getting people to think. While I don't always agree with Seth, I do always give his ideas some heavy weight when debating them. Very interesting write up on Seth. I look forward daily to reading his blog and hopefully will for some time to come.
