New York Times & Boston Globe

Filed under: Blog Explanations, Random — Robert John Ed @ 3:32 pm

From department of unsuspected cool things:

The New York Times quoted me from my post on Zappos…I’m not sure if this is only online but I suspect as much.  Um, wow?

Then the Boston Globe picked up the same article.  Crazy.

The lesson:  it’s better to be lucky than to be good.  There are far better bloggers out there with far more insight and I’m quite honestly astounded and thankful to Dan Mitchell for even reading Redmarketer.

  2. Grahambo-

    Yes there was a significant jump in impressions. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean much unless they come back; which is somewhat unlikely. I just don’t think many people do for sheer info overload.

    I’ve honestly got to figure out a better way to integrate other people, opinions and ideas into the site to make it more of a community. Which reminds me, thanks for commenting!

  3. Nice work, keep up on the marketing commentary, it’s great to read and and I love to get another perspective on a topic I am genuinely interested in.
