Is Anyone Listening?

I'm an unread blogger, with very few inbound links.  True to the name of my blog, I usually post interesting things I come across without much editorial.  I'm not terribly influential in terms of reach, but I am very vocal in my offline world about brands I admire [or don't].  And people do often turn to me for POVs, questions or advice based on what I know about these brands.  So this is a test ... I'm curious to see who's listening. 

A few brands I love: Adidas, Potbelly, Lego, Levi's, Paul Smith, W Hotels, The Chicago Cubs, Swiss Army, Virgin Atlantic, ING, Heinz, Target, Dyson, Flickr, Sierra Nevada

End of experiment.  I'll keep you posted on the results.
