Man, every site is a mini-Huffpo these days full of re-posts and self-promoters (like me) guest-blogging. Is this a good thing?
See this pretty random average article I clicked on at the top of my LinkedIn a few minutes ago It was *the hottest article* (of the instant, for people like me)
Kind of. I wasn’t going to find random self-help guy’s post if the HBR or SAI or Forbes hadn’t reblogged it and given it a bost. Of course, having it tweeted or posted on LinkedIn is the last mile.
So it works like this
– people blog
– aggregators repost
– readers discover
– some share
– and more discover
– then trend aggregators make it fly
