  1. thank you… again.

    This and Hugh MacLeod’s anecdote about what an anonymous creative director once told him (about toned-down and toned-up versions) have become a part of my mantra.

    (I can’t find the Hugh MacLeod / reference. If I do, I’ll post it.)

  2. Sonia:

    Thanks for running this – I wasn’t reading CB until recently and missed it first time around.


    Thanks for the manifesto – I will plug it into my pitch. I have printed it and it now hangs in my office!

    Much obliged,
    Ronald Sieber

  3. Powerful! When I read this, it reminds me of all the internet marketers and SEO guys who believe the only thing it takes to be successful is a handful of poorly crafted articles and an article spinner. I wonder if they will ever catch on?

    Thanks for sharing…

  4. Love this except I don’t have the techie skills. Or rather I don’t want to. Fortunately I can sub that out to someone who does it faster and better leaving me to the fun stuff like writing. Yes, it’s good to be the ringleader and there’s never been a better time to be a writer than right now.

  5. Replacing my “hang in there baby!” kitty poster post-haste! That said, the only thing that might improve this poster would be the inclusion of a cat. Possible for next printing?
