  1. "People come to you for your expertise, but they stay with you because of the character or the personality that's presenting it."

    Wow, that is so insightful! It explains a lot about the half-hearted success of my own websites, which are informative but bland. They attract those who seek the information and are grateful for it, but a community never develops around them. Contrast that with a site like MrMoneyMustache that is packed with attitude. It has a huge regular following, and attracts an enormous discussion around every post.

    I'm going to make some serious changes to the way I present my online work.

    1. Thanks Roger! I also thought that was a brilliant insight from Elliott. Great to hear that it has inspired you.

  2. Awesome stuff. Elliot is so inspiring.
    I felt like a kid seing two of his favorite favorite characters in a crossover episode.
