Great article: 1000 true fans

By March 12, 2008 No Comments

This article by Kevin Kelly is really something. I hope he writes a book on this topic. It’s been completely refreshing to my brain to have read this. For years I (like many creatives) have struggled with the “blockbuster” barrier to entry, the idea that you need to either write “Harry Potter” or don’t bother. As an artist, I’ve found I make my living on many small hits, not one big one, and that work and creativity is a continuum. The premise of “1,000 true fans” makes so much sense, and makes success as a creative more tangible and possible. I urge you to read it. And watch out for indications that I may be trying to make YOU a true fan soon….Link to Kevin Kelly
