Heard of Chris Pirillo? Well, besides having parents with fantastic taste in first names, he’s routinely the #1 result when you Google the word “Chris”
Am I jealous? Nah… ok, yeah… but he deserves it and the millions of hits his YouTube channel gets every month!
Am I a fan? Well, absolutely because after you watch some of his videos, you begin to realize that he’s just plain sincere.
And, one may say there is nowhere online worth going where you won’t find Chris, and that makes for a tough time getting his attention, probably because sincerity is a commodity in short supply these days.
So, I was not trying to get his attention when I put his name on one of my Twitter lists “http://twitter.com/#!/webmindset/wow-these-guys-really-get-it” but here is what happened.
He saw it and reposted it here:
I was definitely not fishing for attention because Chris and I are working on a project right now for his home and he and I are both incredibly busy. This was just serendipitous and I wanted to take a minute to show you one more way to stand above the crowd.
A few minutes after I’d published this post, I checked Monitter.com and saw this:
I think I’ll add @TheCraigFisher to my list of smart guys who know a good post when they see it.
Oh, wait, it’s 5 minutes later and I need to add @TrishasTravels to that list.
Shoot, I better get off my tail and actually create that list!
Go for it, but don’t dilute the effectiveness by abusing it, and tell us about it.
I’ll blog it if it’s substantial.
All the best,
Chris… the other Chris
