"Going back to my Daily Fix post, someone has got to pay the bills at some point."

One of the most powerful moments I've seen this year was at Podcasters Across Borders. Mr. Brogan gave a quick 5 minute presentation. If you haven't seen it:

It's a very fine line to tread between spending your communities trust to tell them about clients and services. You have to be careful about how you approach this. At the same time, you have to eat.

I think the trust is an extremely valuable thing and very fragile. I value that trust and my relationships with others so much that sometimes I over think what I'm doing in the interest of protecting that community.

Still turning this over in my mind but will likely blog about the issue myself over the next few days.
