Only in New York does a grandma get to talk to Chris Guillebeau, Jonathan Fields, and Derek Halpern–all within 20 minutes. (Tweet me).
Learning from young people (often young men)
I am old enough to be the mom of any one of these enterprising young men. But because of social media, I can learn from them and apply at least a fraction of what they know. As the saying goes, “on the internet, nobody knows you’re a dog. Don’t take that too literally. 🙂
I paid attention to Jonathan’s recommendation, started getting Derek’s newsletter, and this week watched his free webinar that gave away a lot of good “content” for free. I learned a lot in one hour and now Derek has sent a link of his diagram of a perfect blog post, which I am sharing with you.
A grandma’s takeaway? All I can say is “the wheels on the bus go round and round.”

Here’s a newer and updated 2015 version of the perfect blog post written my Matt Banner. If you are working to attract a large audience, he has valuable advice.
