identity theft?

So I wrote some “hate mail” to Mike Birbiglia once. He’s a stand up that I enjoy and he was talking in an interview about the e-mail he gets. He mentioned that he has two accounts that people can send stuff into – one for fan mail and one for hate mail.

I sent him a quick note to his hate mail because I figured he’d be much more likely to read hate mail. He told me I was right. We ended up e-mailing back and forth a few times and even did a faux blog interview. It wasn’t great because I sent all the questions at once…so it didn’t really feel like a back and forth conversation.

In any event, it was fun to get a note from someone I see on tv and respect. And I was just thinking about that because I’ve been wondering if the comment on yesterday’s blog was actually from Seth Godin. Seth writes the best blog in the business…if creative common sense is a business???

He’s a marketing guy and for some reason I happened upon his blog one day and just loved it. I don’t really scour the marketing blogs, but he’s just brilliant and I’m very interested in how he thinks. I don’t always agree with him, but sure appreciate his insight. Anyhow, “Seth Godin” left a comment on yesterday’s blog…and I’m dying to know if it was really him.

PS – Hunger Walk is this Monday and it’d be fun to see you there.


  1. Could be him. It's a pre-existing Blogger account... not something just made up yesterday.

    I feel almost famous. I know somebody who once had Seth Godin post on their blog.

  2. I'm not sure. I have a feeling it's not him, but stranger things have happened.
