Trophy cupcake for Paul

Normally I don’t go in for long posts … I am not a fan of reading nor writing them — but every now and then a post comes along that just carries you away with it. This one by Paul McEnany is one such post. It returns to a theme that he has been exploring for some time — the changing media environment we live in and the changes it will wreak on the unsuspecting players in that landscape.

Paul writes with an insider’s view on the outside world. He pulls you into his posts with a torrent of ideas and a fusion of images. He makes you feel like you are holding your breath as you read. At the end of the post, you gulp burning air like a drowning man. In this post he ends with "breathe easy …" — just to remind you that oxygen is as important as passion.

  1. Gavin, as always, you know how to make a man walk a little taller. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for the kind words.
    Did I say thank you? 🙂
    I think it’s time for Eat, Sleep, Blog round 2!

  2. What a wonderful tribute to Paul (well deserved). I love his post. Does this mean that she finally gets a doughnut? Since Paul gets a cupcake?

  3. Thanks for pointing me towards Paul’s really, really stunning post. I enjoyed it.
    I like it when someone writes about marketing, and I can actually understand what he’s trying to say (seeing as though I’m not a marketing person and don’t know the concepts or lingo). 🙂
    This is actually what I love about Servant Of Chaos. Gavin, I really think you could write about just about anything and have me rivetted to the screen. You deserve a trophy cupcake also. 🙂

  4. Gavin,
    Like you, I am not a fan of long posts. But, I did read (well, scanned) Paul’s post. As an editor, I can’t help but think the message could have been delivered more concisely for a blog audience. However, if anyone can get away with that many words on a post, it is Paul.
