Okay, okay, I know--I'm a day late. But that's because I've been RIDICULOUSLY busy with Halloween!!

I read something yesterday that really struck me. 

It was a Seth Godin blog entry--for those of you who regularly read me, you know I'm a HUGE fan of his--and it discussed technique.

I've been thinking a lot about marketing lately.
