You know, I love blogging! I love blogging not only because it allows me to share the things that I believe in. Not because I can roam the Internet to read and learn from what other people believe in. No, what I love most about blogging is that it allows me to interact with those people who are willing to interact with me.
That is so important, and yet the comments on some my previous posts revealed to me that not everybody believed in the importance of that interaction. Some said that it was impossible to do, that there just wasn’t enough time and that I was being unrealistic. Well you know, even though every fibre in my body was screaming BULLSHIT, I tried to be very diplomatic about it all and my comments, as they usually are because that’s the type of person I am, were very reserved.
Well, one of the comments left on this post by Scott Web showed me that there are actually some big boys who believed as I do. He mentioned a name I’ve never heard of before, Gary Vaynerchuk, and his comment led me to believe that Gary and I were on the same page on certain things.
I had to find out whether or not this was an accurate assumption, and so I Googled his name and I came to his blog and I discovered the guy knew exactly what I was on about.
I highly recommend that you watch the following video, from beginning to end. It’s a long video, and Gary drops the F bomb, as well as other expletives, on more than one occasion, but it is an inspiring as well an instructive video. I assure you that it will change the way you tackle your business, your blog and life in general.
I know that after watching this video it strengthened my resolve to continue on pushing the importance of interacting with my readers. I’ve also added his blog to my list of blogs to follow. You will find it on my blogroll shortly.
I’m also very interested to learn more the man and his beliefs and I figure my best chance of doing this is to purchase his book Crush It.
