For those expecting a technology blog today, you can skip this posting.
The most common comment I get from people reading my blog is “thanks for the original content”. I wouldn’t have it any other way. Many of us are tired of “me too” postings. Reposting Youtube, reposting of this, reposting of that. Why is this? Why is there essentially a culture of copy out there? What can we do to fix it? Many of my readers are recruiters. Well, if you are a recruiter then you must recruit or better yet, adopt a blogger.
What stops someone who has much to say… from saying it? As easy as setting up a WordPress blog is, it will stop most non-technical people in their tracks.
I was having a discussion with Dan Hughes, one of the people who helped build and grow Broadlook Technologies with me. Dan wants to blog. Dan did not know where to start. We even thought of a name for his site (The Sales Trench). Weeks later, no blog. So I’m adopting Dan. I registered SalesTrench.com, installed WordPress for him and configured it.
Adoption is not a one time event.
I will be pestering the heck out of Dan to get some of his great ideas down. Right now, the site is empty, so, Dan, you are out there, the world is waiting, now you have to write.
Dan and I talk almost every day, he can’t escape. I’ll be a blog-parent until he flies from the nest. Dan, happy birthday. Have fun with the site!
Call to bloggers
Who will you adopt? Can you think of someone with great ideas that really should be writing them down? Adopt them, help them, encourage them, pester them if you must. More unique content will lift us all. Send me a note about your adoption.
