Well, if Lance can do it, so can I. No, not win seven consecutive Tours de France. Retire.
As I mentioned in my first post two months ago, Profits & Prophets has been an experiment to figure out the ins and outs of blogging so I can better help my clients navigate the world of one-to-one marketing. I have learned a tremendous amount about blogging in a relatively short period of time and have truly appreciated your comments and e-mails.
A few things I have learned from having a blog and researching blogging:
- It is easy to create a mediocre blog and very difficult (and time-consuming) to create an excellent and worthwhile blog
- Very few blogs out there are excellent and/or worthwhile enough to rise above niche interest (for examples of excellent and worthwhile blogs, check out http://www.boingboing.net/ and the more techy http://www.kuro5hin.org/)
- Outside of mass media and blogger evangelists, no one else seems to be hyping blogging. That being said, mass media has a very loud voice.
So now I am on to new ventures, including a new client focused on health care management in Africa. Should be very cool!
At the risk of sounding like a hippy (not that there's anything wrong with that), I wish you all wonder, wisdom and joy. Later!
