Ya'll know that Guy Kawasaki guy, right? The one with that Alltop thing? And Truemors and stuff? Well Guy recently disclosed that he has a little help Tweeting from two other people. In other words, he uses ghost writers, on occasion. I found this article through a friend's blog and found it pretty interesting. Apparently some people are pretty upset. It is Guy Kawasaki, after all. The Internet cares if Guy Kawasaki uses butter or margarine. And if he folds his socks or ties them after doing laundry. And if Guy Kawasaki says you gotta eat cat food for a week to become a better blogger, people are gonna eat cat food for a week.
I don't see what the big deal is. Here on Yellaphant, I use ghost writers all the time. Like that one time I really wanted to take a nap so I grabbed the neighborhood meth addict and gave her a handfull of circus peanuts to write a post for me. It's not like she had anything better to do. Except yell at parked cars.
And sometimes I write posts after hours of heavy drinking, which is pretty much the same thing as hiring a ghost writer because I never remember writing anything so it's kind of like a totally different person.
And you know all those posts about vaginas? My mommom wrote those.
So I hear you, Guy Kawasaki. You can't be everything to everyone. You go, girl. And if you ever need someone to tweet about things that don't really make sense, you know where to look. Call me.
