@Shonali A little while. What I currently write on is a little more than four years, but I got started with a web page that more or less functioned like a blog. Wrote little updates from abroad when I could get connectivity. Oh, the Dreamweaver days.

@JoeCardillo BTW, had no idea you worked for Visual.ly. One of these days I need to set aside time and really work on creating something.

@JoeCardillo ha. really made me LOL!
@lauraclick Classic, Laura! I do like Jay Baer's content. He just has a way of keeping it fresh and insightful -- and yet practical. Heard a few interviews about his new book and looking forward to that. Sounds worthwhile.
Four years! That speaks volumes Shonali, for sticking with it! Congrats!

If my blog was a beer, it would be a strong beer. : -)
@Joshua Wilner/A Writer Writes I think there's a lot of truth to that Joshua. It's a tool to tighten the bond between an organization and those die-hard fans!

Great question; they did what we should do with content: promote it! TC blogged, linked and shared it. Great for the community of writers and a clever way to bring back the occasional reader.
@Howie Goldfarb @belllindsay @Frank_Strong @ginidietrich Well, I always show bra strap, but it never works for me. So complexion is the next best thing. (this comment sponsored by Noxzema).

The word "publicity" makes me want to shower with a Brillo pad.
@JoeCardillo No kidding, I really thing there's something there -- a crazies convention. Maybe we start small with MeetUps a-la Fight Club style First rule of crazies....

Craz-ZZZZsss! Let's stir up on Gini D! And congrats, Joe, you have a start on the carpet leading to Gini's office. She puts one there for every FF, or so the legend goes. BTW, The Goodman Project is good stuff. We need more content like this.

@Kennerknecht Agreed, Mike. No doubt the government needs a little communication help to get the word out, but they can't have a blank check. Not when I look at that hideously sizable first deduction on my paystub every two weeks. Thanks for sharing.

@lauraclick It's an interesting dilemma Laura. Clearly I think there's value and a need for it, but how much is enough? Double what the FDA spends? And what's the opportunity cost as Nature points out? More questions than answers, I suppose. Appreciate you stopping by for a comment.

@Danny Brown Huh. I buy into that concept. What if we traded brand name for charity? I don't want to hijack this thread. Let's table it for now and pick it up somewhere else. Surely you have a blog post in mind! :-)
