Voice-In: Give a girl 5 minutes and 2 cents?
For an upcoming piece, I'm polling the marketing community (that's you, dear reader). It won't take but 5 minutes. Then again, you may need to ruminate on it for a day and then give me your $.02. It's only 1 question. A big one. I really appreciate your time and thought on the following:
What is the single greatest point of value you receive from blogging? New business? New friends? Newfound smarts? Fortune, fame or creative freedom? I'm sure you've found many points of value, but what I seek is the single, the uber, the most rewarding, robust and important point of value you've gained from embracing these tools and investing your time. Just one. And a few words explaining why. (Hint: every answer is right.)
Once I compile the piece everyone involved gets credited and I'll share the results, of course. To start the thread, I've included my two cents in the comments. Should you rather e-mail me your comments, that's great, too. Thanks so much.
