Two and a half years ago, on a cold day in October, I sat down at my computer and decided to journal the restoration of my beautiful 1941 Barrel Back. No big deal, just a story a week on the progress. As many of you know by now, I can’t write worth a lick, and my spelling is at a 4th grade level. It gets worse, I can barley read, it’s something about the way my eyes track copy. Not kidding.. I could be reading a lust note from Pam Anderson and it would take me an hr to read it all. I would read it all by the way…. At some point, I am not sure when, I decided to do a story once a day. It just felt good to be doing something for my self. I know it seems odd to be broadcasting ones thoughts across the planet as something one does for them selves. But this is what I do, I do marketing for folks that ask me to broadcast for them… So this in a way is my way of using what I know how to do for me. I know how to broadcast. Not write though, this has been a very therapeutic way for me to feel more comfortable with writing. I also have learned a great deal about how the web works. Shhhh don’t tell my clients… I have experts here at the company that laughed at me with my clumbsyness on the web. But they are not laughing anymore…..In fact I am now coaching folks on blogging and social media. I use Woody Boater as an example about owning a niche. And how mass marketing is dead.. POWER TO THE NICHE! Sorry… I have left the topic of Classic Boats and wondered into marketing… Today Woody Boater is reaching readers all over the world. With over 900 stories, and 12,000 readers a month, sponsors, and reporters across the US. Crap..that all sounds too big when I say it that way… Dang! We are also about to announce some new things. A new more robust web site, T-shirts, hats, and water bottles, all being launched at Mt Dora in 35 days. So if you are going to be there, stop by and say hello, hey, howdy, ahoy!
