A un moment où il semblerait que le monde soit devenu fou de Klout et où il n’y a pas de limite à la recherche – souvent vaniteuse – de la réputation, Chris Brogan nous apporte la réponse à cette importante question : ne vous préoccupez pas de votre réputation, faites votre travail et laissez dire … à méditer
The Myth of Reputation
We worry about our reputation. How are we perceived? What do people say about us? If we’re not around, what gets said differently? The trick is that reputation comes from the perspectives of others, and as such, it’s not ours to worry about.
THE MYTH OF REPUTATION
Ask my dozens of haters and they’ll say I’m overrated, have nothing new to say, and am in it for the money. Ask my devoted and loyal following and they’ll say that everything I put out is a gem and that I can spin garbage into gold. Both are right. It’s a perspective.
When I started Blog Topics, people wrote angry posts stating that I was evil for selling this, and that topics exist everywhere for free. At the same time those posts were being labored over, hundreds of people subscribed to Blog Topics and are still subscribed, getting weekly writing advice. When I’m an hour or two late with publishing the latest issue, I get emails asking for it. Both are right. You can get topics anywhere for free. You can pay for writing advice from me.
