The Pilgrim Returns

OK, let’s see if I can remember how to do this. ;-)

Marketing_PilgrimHowdy Pilgrims!

As you’ll see from yesterday’s post, Frank Reed is moving on up. For the past 3 years, Frank has guided Marketing Pilgrim, while I focused on building Trackur. Now that Trackur is established as one of the leading social media monitoring tools in the world, I’m able to come back and start blogging here once again. Actually, I had no choice, Frank was leaving regardless, so I had to come back. It just turned out the timing was good. :-)

The good news is you shouldn’t notice much difference in the quality of writing. If anything, Frank left big boots to fill as I’ve always been a fan of his ability to look beyond the superficial and really get you thinking about the news–all with a heavy dose of wit and rhetoric.

Only, they’re not yet set in stone and we have a couple of paths we can take. We do know that as the internet marketing (and blogging) landscape changes, so must Marketing Pilgrim, in order to continue its role as one of the leading sources of internet marketing news and opinion.

So, we thought we’d crowd-source some ideas from the smartest people we know–you!

We’d love to hear your suggestions on what you would do with Marketing Pilgrim, if you owned it. Would you continue with the same format? Would you focus more on a particular channel? Would you make it subscription only? Would you sell it? Would you shut it down? Would you…..?
