There is nothing so wonderful as encouraging people with potential to take their rightful place. I may have been one of the people who saw that in you early on, but I certainly am not the only one - as evidenced by this vibrant community which surrounds you here.
I am even more moved by how you have taken these early kindnesses and passed them onto others. All of us had people who guided and encouraged us, mine were Katie Paine, Shel Israel and Scott Baradell. It's not a coincidence that Katie connected us, Shonli :-)
I am gald that we have stayed friends all of these years, and I hope it continues well into the future.

Also, when you are pitching, one of the first things an interested journalist will say is, "okay, send me the press release and we will take a look." You might not want to get caught with your pants down when they do. They might not be the actual news generator anymore, but they can move the news along.

@ginidietrich Yes, I do. You make one main site with the satellite sites to meet regulatory requirement and optimized for the statewide words. So, in practice you are putting all the effort into the main site, SEO, everything, and the sattellite sites serve to meet requirements and as a platform to curate the content from the main site that is relevant. You can even use category RSS feeds, if you need to parse it.

Can you also use the RSS feed to feed fresh "content" from the blog in the form of a headline and blurb? This would also dive traffic back to the main page.
I think you make an excellent point about having arguments of ideas that don't lead to a destruction of relationships. When we personalize our disagreement is where we lose sight of the end goal, which is to understand each other better. This idea underpins the work I do on the board of Civilination, an organization that works to foster an online culture where everyone can freely participate in an open exchange of ideas without fear of being harassed. To get there, we have to work together to create environments where this can happen.

@jeffespo I went to order this book on Kindle only to find I forgot that I already ordered it. Guess I need it, if I can remember to read it.

Not sure this really addresses the "American" audience as much as it fulfills a stereotype of Canadians about the US. I do like the Red Bars, they have a thinning effect on that t-shirt, so sign me up!

The "girlfriend" is HILARIOUS. She has a whole channel of these videos, some with way more views. Not sure her dating life will ever recover, but hey...

So glad to be included in the list. As for the comment about list posts. I actually think they are awesome IF they have real content. Too many don't. I like list posts and I like to write them. They are easy to skim, they allow a person to dive deeper if wanted, and they are a fast read. All of these are just components of good writing for the web.

Thanks so much for publishing our interview, Tonia,
Just want to put out there that it was David Sifry, then at Technorati, who conceived the concept of the "magic middle" way back in 2006. Here is a link, the definition comes about halfway through the piece. Tonia, you might want to anchor link it in the text. http://www.sifry.com/alerts/archives/000420.html

@Ike You would think that way. And @DenVan , I expect you to give a large chunk to a charitable cause ;-)
