Seth Godin: You are what you share

Seth Godin says ‘You are what you share’

Seth GodinAs a reader of Seth Godin’s blog, I couldn’t resist writing about his latest article. (You’ll find the link below).

Isn’t that a wonderful quote – ‘you are what you share’? When you think about it, isn’t sharing the natural way of human beings? Would the human race still be here if our ancestors hadn’t shared food, warmth, love? Nope.

Sharing today often means giving our stories, photographs, opinions and recommendations to others and the majority of that is done online.

That is the basis of JAQUO Magazine.

Our writers want to share with you. It might be a great recipe, a wonderful book, a funny story, a topical tale or a quirky fact or two from history.

And don’t forget those useless items of trivia with which to bore your friends – why are large pepper mills called rubirosas? Is Hitler’s son alive an well and living in England? What is tempura? It’s all at JAQUO.

And we want you to share too. If you read something I write and you think I’m talking out of the wrong part of my anatomy, then tell me. You can comment on every article on this site.

It’s lovely if you want to tell our writers how much you enjoyed their recipe or idea. But what if you disagree with every word? Then go ahead!

Start a debate. Or create, as Seth himself once said, a ruckus. We like that. We’re not  here to pontificate – we want to hear what you think. JAQUO is not a one-way street.

As Seth Godin says:

Sharing an idea you care about is a generous way to change your world for the better

Humans share. It’s in our nature. Have we become afraid to share these days? Are we worried about ‘what people will think’? Do we have the confidence to share our opinions and causes?

Several of the writers on JAQUO cut their online-writing teeth on a site founded by Seth. He created something terrific. So good, that the demise of the site was like a body-blow to some. But look what it started. Join the ruckus.

Here’s a final Seth quote from his blog:

The culture we will live in next month is a direct result of what people like us share today. The things we share and don’t share determine what happens next.
