Thank you for the inspiration.
Thank you for all the great ideas and remarkable moments that made me shout out “Damn, I Wish I’d Thought of That!”
Every single post here is about some awesome thing that someone else did, that I ripped off and shared with my readers. Thank you to everyone who has read, commented, shared, and contributed. Plus a super-special thanks to Cale Johnson, Kristen Platt, and Julie Grisham, who have co-written so many awesome posts (and edited out so many mistakes) (and to Julie for being a great wife etc. etc.).
This blog has been there for some amazing innovations in how we share ideas. The first years were delivered by email, then we started posting the articles to a website, then it became a proper blog, then we posted to newfangled things like that Twitter that the kids are so excited about.
The real lesson isn’t about the delivery technology, but about the power of great ideas. Everything comes down to great content and ideas worth sharing. The medium you choose to publish in doesn’t matter at all — just make the ideas worth talking about.
And now to the thank you gift…
I’ll mail you an amazing, must-have thank you gift, for free, if you send a self-addressed, stamped envelope to GasPedal, 3616 Far West Blvd., Box 500, Austin, TX 78731. If you are less than 74 years old, you may need to watch this video to know what an SASE is.
The gift may be a fake moustache, copies of my book, a case of whiskey, a robot monkey, Facebook earrings, cheese, an iPad, something sexxxy, a rare collectible item. You’ll just have to send me a letter to find out. (And tell your friends…)
