Upcoming remarks

I'm working on my BlogCon speech.

Look, if you’re getting lots of traffic, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I blogged harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something—there are a whole bunch of hardworking bloggers out there.

If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great HTML or JavaScript teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable Internet system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in fiber-optics and servers. If you’ve got a blog—you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen....
Ah, it's a collectivist work in progress.
