What a Guy!

Guy Kawasaki has been blogging for 100 days now, almost as long as feedscott. In less than a 100 days he has reached epic proportions in readership and put his blog entitled: "Bona tempora volvantur Blogger. n. Someone with nothing to say writing for someone with nothing to do." into the Technorati Top 100 Blogs. Currently, Guy has 6,094 links from 2,809 sites plus one now, and is 86th out of the Top 100! Guy is proof that you don't have to be old school to be on the A list.

Guy has Quality over Quantity and he has a goal to be in the Top 10 Technorati Blogs. You go Guy!

Guy has mostly business oriented postings with insight about how to be effective in the big business world. However, the principles Guy presents could be used for small business as well. Robert Scoble introduced me to Guys blog vicariously.

The Gospel According to Guy "not Judas" blog is filled with beneficial wisdom not superficial fluff. Be sure to give a Guy a click and a link if you like.
