If You Know Seth Godin Please Send This To Him ASAP


Did you really think you'd get away with it?

Get away with what?  Oh Seth, don't play dumb.  You're a best-selling writer of marketingy stuff; a widely recognized expert on things; and a very popular blogger on topics ranging from this to that. 

I think we know the facts, but let's recap ..

On February 28 I wrote a post titled Sprezzatura.  Not the best thing I've ever written, but not the worst.

Then on March 2 you wrote a post titled ... wait for it ... Sprezzatura

Cue diabolical music.

What are the odds, Seth?  Not very good.  Perhaps we were both unwittingly inspired by the same thing; but regardless I wrote my post first.

I smell foul play and I need to be made whole.  Here are your options:

  1. You can write my blog URL - www.FlaggedForFollowUp.com - on your head for a week.  When asked by friends and strangers what gives, you respond He's the man!
  2. You make me the only person you follow on Twitter for an exclusive period of 3 weeks.  In case you don't know, I'm @iansohn.  Also would appreciate you mobilizing your minions to follow me.
  3. You can send me 2 cases of beer.

Please remit proof of #1 via a photo to iansohn2 [at] yahoo [dot] com. 

Alternatively I will be on the lookout for the notification that @thisissethsblog is now following me.

Finally, if you go with #3 I prefer Sierra Nevada. Happy to send my mailing address via the email above.

Seth, I look forward to putting this episode behind us.
