Are You a Content Marketing Nail Goblin?1127

Belew private msg quote post Address this user
My daughter reads books about Tinker Bell-type fairies.

The enemy of these fairies are goblins. The goblin's purpose in life is to make the fairies and all those around them miserable.

There are goblins in the content marketing industry perhaps. Their aim is to make life miserable ... or in some cases to just be contrarian ... or in others, to make it hard on us to do the job legitimately.

My wife has had 2 flat tires in the past couple of months. Different tire, but same location ... back right (doesn't matter).

Who in the world goes out in to the world and spreads these random nails? How does that happen? Why does that happen?

Why are their goblins? Why are there trolls online?

Why? Why? Why?

Yes, and I got one of those random nails on my bike just before I was ready to cycle around Stanley Park. What a pain, maybe it tells us to slow down and take a breath before running amok.

@Belew I think that there is a false impression that in order for some people to stand out...they need to be disruptive- and not in the challenge convention, pioneer, and innovate direction but the abrasive, lets polish the fine silver with the belt sander approach.

I got a nail in a tire a few years back while traveling on the freeway. Put the spare on and it went flat too. So there it sat all day. That evening a friend took me over to where it was. It was gone. Probably towed because it was on the shoulder.

I called the highway patrol about it. They told me that, yes, it was towed.

But before it was towed, a lady driving during rush hour fell asleep drove off the road and hit it and was badly injured. It saved her life. Had the car not been there, she would have hit a concrete pillar and would surely have died.

I don't complain about a flat tires.

@morrnel

I complain more about spare tires than flat tires.

Not that spare tire...this spare tire.
