A Confession: I am a Fraud

Source: www.linkedin.com

My friend, Nick Kellet, co-founder of List.ly, has this on his LinkedIn feed.

 

I confess…I am a fraud, too. You hadn’t figured that out yet? Really. It’s so obvious. Heck, I’m a fraud for posting this article about being a fraud, for heaven’s sake. 

 

A big part of content strategy is learning how to reuse information in order to reshape it into something different and new. There are some great examples of this sort of thing in the article, and I’m sure you can think of many more. 

 

Based on this article, are you fraudulent, too?  Confess your sins below, and let’s commiserate.

    I like the way Seth Godin put it, in a post that (as if to prove the point) was published the same day as CamMi’s: Of course it’s been done before.

    Seth says don’t try to be original. Just add value for the people you’re trying to reach. Sounds good to me. If that makes me a fraud, then I — like you — will wear the title proudly.
