Did Chris Brogan sell out?
Erm..no. Not by a long shot.
There’s been lots said all over the blogosphere and in Twitterland about Chris Brogan’s sponsored K-mart post. Many of the Twitteri are calling him a sell out. So I don’t need to go on about at any length, but want to add my two pennies worth.
No Chris is not a sell out. And anyone who knows even the slightest thing about social media will understand that. There are very few online personalities who are as transparent, genuine and honest as Chris. I can’t think of a single person who is more generous than him in terms of sharing the learning.
Anyone who thinks his $500 K-mart shopping spree makes him a sell out, should spend some time reading his blogs. You’ll quickly see that his K-mart post is an excellent example of blogging best practice, and he should be admired, not vilified.
