I still want this blog to primarily be about SEO, but I am going to start posting a bunch more about other web aspects and other marketing ideas I have, because as the algorithms advance those who have great holistic or viral ideas will be the ones who win. Those who chase the algorithms will need to have smarts and resources beyond what the average person has. Almost anyone can be creative and if you tune in to culture the marketing ideas tend to throw themselves at you.

When I interviewed NFFC he stated:
I think the best brands, the best sites have a large portion of their founders personality in them. Never be afraid to be yourself, after all there are 1/2 billion people on the www, not all of them have to agree with you. Concentrate on the ones that share your views, concentrate on making their experience the very best it can be, the rest forget them.
Or to put it another way, the best sites say - this is what we do, this is how we do it, if you don't like it go somewhere else.
