However, we all need to take a step back and think about what we’re breathing in as practically the gospel. Joel Klettke talked about this on Twitter recently:
I know we’re all gracefully stumbling into the whole content marketing, new wave thing. …
NOTE: A lot of the 404s were corrected and now have redirects. I wrote this post about 5 days ago while they were still 404ing; I wanted to publish it immediately, but because of an unforeseen issue, I couldn’t get it out until this very moment.

When I was in middle school I was rocking some pretty tight blue jeans. For most of my later life I got a pretty good laugh when I looked back at what I considered a ridiculous style choice.
