Seth Godin, probably one of the best blog writers in a growing
arena of blog posts. He has a very refreshing approach to almost
everything that he utilizes at his disposal. Whether it be one of
his books or his blogs or even his interviews on TED or any
other media, he has a very fresh approach to whatever is at
The internet and the blogging stage or any other way of
communication in this day and age of electronic marvels,
gives us a way of putting our thoughts and ideas out there
so it can reach an enormous number of people eager to
find out what we are thinking and doing.
A few years ago, I had no idea what a blog was or what
its function might be. If you attempt to look up the actual
word “blog” in a dated dictionary, it doesn’t even appear.
So our vocabulary has to be constantly updated to remain
on the internet blogging horizon of the electronic gadgets.
As you can see and hear from the previous video, Seth
Godin, has a special way of explaining even the simpliest
of things, such as how a young girl had an idea about socks
and ran with it.
When I first came in contact with the blogging idea, it
seemed to be a way for people to comment on what
other individuals had said or remarked about. Many
times the comments were only a few words long and
they were usually done to rebuff or agree with what
was said. Now, blogging seems to have a much
more thorough and longer conveyance of messages,
many times utilizing 500 to 800 words.
I think this is one of many reasons that the USPS is
failing. People either communicate utilizing the
internet or the cell phone by either voice or text.
Young children are introduced to these methods
at a very young age and by the time they are out
of grade school, they are masters of these techniques.
The older population, the “boomers” can either embrase
it or reject it, but either way, it ain’t going away. This is
the new way of communication, sometimes impersonal,
sometimes void of that comforting touch of a warm voice
at the other end of the tool. Like it or not, to be engaged
with your children or grandchildren, you might have to be
hooked up to the modern technology.
How many times do you see an older individual struggling
with trying to push the proper keys on that small keyboard
on the cell phone and then looking around out of frustration.
The wrong keys were pushed because the keys are
way too small and they only use one finger rather than the
two fingers in texting used by the younger generation.
Now whether or not Seth Godin uses texting or only
uses the blogging or video platform, is not really the
question, but rather the fact that he communicates in
a way that completely makes communication fun and
interesting. We can learn from him and enjoy the fruits
of our labor and find the contemporary digital marvels
at our disposal, ones to embrace rather than scuff at.
