Reflections on the week that was

Martin Neumann reflects on the week that was

My weekly column this week over at The Blog Herald caused a minor flare up. I said my piece and let it go from there. It was a good eye-opener, though. Lots of comments and feedback – emails!!! Extreme is all I will say to those emails. ;). To those who may or may not have jumped up my span quotient up by 750% as of this morning – thanks! Much appreciated.

I get some grief about columns at the Blog Herald from time to time – and that’s good, because it tells me that people are reading and getting riled up – which is part of what I love about the blogosphere. But what most folks don’t realize is that I don’t tell the columnists, or really any blogger here at The Blog Herald, what to write about.

They write about whatever they want – whenever they want. And I think that’s flat-out awesome.

In fact, unless they leave a column in draft format here, I don’t even get to read their columns or posts in advance.

I love suprises…

    Matt – I knew it would get some attention but who knew that much – and the 9rules guys didn’t even show up – imagine if they did :)

    The nasty and threatening emails was like water off a ducks back for me (surprisingly they were all annonymous, except some don’t really know how easy it’s to find out were they’ve come from – way too easy actually !)

    But the sudden jump in spam annoyed me – maybe just a co-incidence, but I’m averaging 200 or so spams a week for quite a while now – I got 1900+ in the last 3 days alone – 500+ penis enlargement offers being the number one. :-) :-) I’m happy to leave it as being just a co-incidence.

    You love surprises – then wait for next weeks column… ;)
