Becoming part of the conversation… blogging

In the 6-week blogging class that began yesterday, Liv posted this short video featuring best-selling authors Seth Godin and Tom Peters talking about blogging.  I’ve watched it 7 times now. 

“It doesn’t matter if anyone reads it.  What matters is the humility that comes from writing it.  What matters is the metacognition of thinking about what you’re going to say… This has become such a micropublishing platform that basically you’re doing it for yourself to become part of the conversation.” ~ Seth Godin, entrepeneur

“I will simply say… no single thing in the last 15 years professionally has been more important to my life than blogging.  It’s changed my life, it’s changed my perspective,    it’s changed my intellectual outlook, it’s changed my emotional outlook, and it’s the best marketing tool by an order of magnitude I’ve ever had.  And it’s free.” ~ Tom Peters, management visionary
