The Copywriter Underground is talking about telling your story.

It is the things that you â€œknowâ€, for example how you feel about something, or information that is abstract from the things around us. Objective information comes from an outsider perspective, it is the things that multiple people can observe and agree upon.

A few months ago, she just disappeared without a word. She didnâ€™t just vanish – – she left, in her wake, seven projects in various stages of completion. Some almost completely doneâ€¦ some only halfway doneâ€¦. some just started. Seven of them.
the Art of Non-Conformity is talking about connectedness.
See, Iâ€™ve never used Myspaceâ€¦ or Facebookâ€¦ and hardware-wise, I donâ€™t have a Blackberry or an expensive MacBook laptop. I just have Gmail, a $3 Skype microphone I bought in Belgrade last year, and a $500 Dell laptop that does everything I need.
