Yesterday a reader gave me crud about only writing about Microsoft. Usually when that happens that is an early-warning sign that I’m in a rut. So, how do you get out of a rut? Force yourself to.
So, here’s a little experiment; Can I get to 100 posts without mentioning Google, Yahoo, or Microsoft? (GYM)
That’s going to be tough. Let’s try.
How hard will it be? Well, over on Shawn Morrissey’s blog I just learned that the Whole Foods Market’s CEO is now blogging. Would it break the rules to comment that Shawn is a coworker of mine? Nah, but it gets close.
So, why do this? Cause I had an entrepreneur last night tell me that when I linked to his company recently his company’s sales doubled.
That reminded me of my time working in marketing for Winnov and I was frustrated by trying to get anyone to pay attention to what our company was doing. I remember what it was like to have all the press pay attention only to Microsoft.
So, let’s see if I can do 100 posts without talking about the big three companies.
