Dear Seth Godin – Part II

Subtitle: How Kindness Works

Last week I sent an email to Seth Godin asking if I could share one of his blog posts every once in a while. (See the Dear Seth Godin post here.)

I didn’t know if he would get my email. I know that with the amount of email I get I try to answer the most important ones first. I didn’t think that my email would be that important to him in the grand scheme of things. Here is Seth’s response:

This whole experience has taught me a couple of things:

  1. Be willing to put yourself out there.
  2. Be honest about what you are asking, and what you are (or aren’t) offering.
  3. Tech doesn’t always work the way that you expect.

Ultimately it re-enforced one feeling: I really, really appreciate Seth Godin.

I have to be honest; I am having a bit of an I-just-got-a-rockstar’s-autograph moment. I don’t have anything to say except, “Thank you, Seth Godin.”

(and the comment problem was fixed.)


I want to note that Seth responded on the day of the “Dear Seth Godin” post. I was surprised by his quick turn-around(I could learn from this.) I was a little shy about posting right away because I wasn’t quite sure of the best way to share about this.
