No, this is not a “groupie” post to praise one of the so-called A-List bloggers, but much less it is a, lately so fashionable name calling and bashing blog post against another blogger. I just want to show that, when looking behind the obvious, there is a lot to learn from the A-list bloggers. Like my grandmother would say: “You can learn something from everybody, and if it is only how NOT to do things.” Or, to alter another famous saying: “Do as they do, not as they say!” Enough babbling like a bumbling band of baboons, here a few points we all could learn from John Chow:
1. Don’t undersell yourself
Charge $750 for a sponsored blog post of, hold your breath, less than 60 words.
2. Don’t discuss with the customer.
But for your faithful, and attentive, readers, make your point in a subtle manner in the comment section.
3. Prevention of a similar event.
OK, sh.. happens, but you don’t want it to happen again 😉 So write a subtle blog post to get your point across without offending anybody and without putting anybody on the spot.
Summary: Look under the surface and you might learn a lot from John Chow 😉 A great example of blogging diplomacy and a great lesson in “Don’t do like they tell you, do as they do.” 😉
