Is it just me, or is a series of purportedly biographical advertisements not the same thing as the 1.0 formula?
You don’t have to worry about selling this idea to people, we’ve already bought it to such a degree that it’s unclear you can handle the volume. What you need to do is commit to something, acknowledge that it will be imperfect and will get improved over time, and deliver it (holds both for the product and opening the recipe). I mean, the very fact that you use version numbers should imply a release then improve-over-time mentality, but slowly converting your previously legit blog to marketing drek suggests that the people who care about image have more sway than the people who care about content. It does not reflect favorably on you.
Talk about solving the problems you have, don’t waste everyone’s time preaching to the choir. Honesty and directness got you this far, why the change in course?
