Merlin Mann, of 43folders.com fame, has been rethinking his site. I can really relate to his restructuring and rethinking of how he wants his business and site to work. We can all relate, or at least we should all relate to his thoughts and actions. If you haven’t thrown all your hard work into the trash and started over lately, I can highly recommend it. In fact, Merlin takes the approach on the site to remind us to re-learn how to use it.
Merlin, please, if you’re going to take this approach, what all of us readers would like is for you to journalize it. Toss around your ideas on the site so we can learn with you. That’s been the exciting part of watching your site grow and change. That goes for anyone who is going through a transition, let us learn your trials and tribulations as you change.
If you’re restructuring your business, let us restructure ours with you. If you’re becoming a public speaker, let us in on how you are doing it. Writing a book? We can learn to write one too, if you let us know the steps you’ve used and what you’ve learned along the way. We can offer one another encouragement, support, share in the headaches and successes. Isn’t that what building a website community is all about?
