I ran across Seth Godin by going back through my old notebook that I keep handy for such occasions. I once looked at a website www.squidoo.com with the idea that I would put my book info on this site for people to run across. I haven't yet added anything to the site, but Seth Godin is the original founder of it and her also writes a blog at sethgodin.typepad.com that contains tips on marketing, writing, and other comments on life in general.
I just read one of his blog posts entitled Ode: How to Tell a Great Story where he tells readers not only how to tell a great story but who to tell it to. I can see where items like this could be of good use to writers for use in their marketing and spreading the word about the products they produce.
So, I thought that I would post a blog about Mr. Godin for others too take a look at if they haven't before been aware of his site and also Squidoo. He has several other sites and blogs which are listed on his blog page
