In retrospect

2008 was a good year for blogging in general and for this blog per se. Writing and reading blogs, and posting comments on it spread like an ideavirus for sharing relevant and contemporary ideas and thoughts. The Marketing Mirror, which I started as a value-added service for a segment of clients, colleagues and friends, shone its reflection far and wide. Its average visits per-day increased by more than 100%. It received comments and feedback from many more than the intended group, reinforcing the increasing power of social media as a means for dialogue between stakeholders, (and we all have a stake in what we believe in and are involved with.)

I thank you all for reading my reflections on markets and marketing and sharing your comments and ideas. Please keep visiting and share your thoughts and ideas on the topics that are so dear to us. As the Irish Playwright George Bernard Shaw said, If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.
