Well, at least according to Seth Godin.
Here was one of Seth’s posts this week:
As dumb as selling shoes, an item that comes in 100s of sizes, over the internet.
As dumb as expecting people to find a date or a spouse online.
As dumb as building an encyclopedia that anyone can edit.
You get the idea. Electric cars with 100-mile range, vegan hamburgers, milk made from oats, free college courses…
The next breakthrough is almost certainly going to be something really dumb. Or perhaps merely obvious and unoriginal.
And as I read that last line, a smile came to my face. There it was, confirmation at last.
I’ve been blogging about nothing for over 2,100 straight days. For probably at least 1,500 of those posts, there were 0 likes and 0 comments.
I think such pathetic numbers point to one thing – my blog is really dumb.
Which, if Seth is right, means it’s ready for its breakthrough.
I may even start to dumb my posts down a bit further as a way to speed up the process.
And I’m guessing many of you are thinking it’s not possible to dumb down what I write any further.
All I can say is, hold my beer…
