logging is a difficult concept for some people to embrace. Often, the best way to learn how you might be able to use a blog for your own benefit is to hear how others use it.
This is where Ted Demopoulos comes into your life. Ted has written a book – What No One Ever Tells You About Blogging and Podcasting: Real-Life Advice from 101 People who Successfully Leverage the Power of the Blogosphere. (Amazon)
Ted agreed to sit for an interview and we discussed many of the individuals he interviewed. He has stories from around the world. Big names and relative unknowns. But, they have all found positive (even profitable) uses for blogs and podcasts in their personal and professional lives. The book includes stories from “Seth Godin, Large John, Guy Kawasaki, surferdude/deep thinker Dave Kesel, Dave Taylor, Andre the Siberian Splogger and reindeer breeder, and even my (Ted’s) favorite, ANONYMOUS!” We discussed several of these people in our interview.
I have edited this down from a one hour conversation. It now runs 21:06 (7mb download), and I hope you will enjoy it.
Full disclosure: I am in the book. Ted kindly included our discussion which is condensed down to the quite simple section – It’s All an Experiment. Thank you, Ted. I’m grateful and honored you chose to include our interview.
Despite my good fortune to be in the book, I’m still grateful for the opportunity to read it. Stories like those Ted has compiled will serve me, and you, well. Check out the book at Amazon. It was released yesterday. My apologies for being a day late.
Here is the interview.
