Deal?

June 27, 2011

Note: This post is about the poll results from Friday, a “normal” blog post will follow shortly.

Thanks to everybody who filled out the poll. 3x a week got the most votes, but very closely followed by 5x, 1x and “other”. So it’s all over the place. Most people wo voted “other” said to post whenever I had something interesting and/or intelligent to say. No pressure!!

That said, I understand what you mean, and maybe that sentiment was also in the votes for 3x per week when I am currently blogging 5x. Maybe it’s not about the frequency per se but more a reflection that some of the posts simply haven’t been what you were looking for. Obviously I write about what interests me at that moment. I do try to ensure it will interest YOU as well, but that’s hard to know for sure.

Maybe we can make a deal: For the moment, I will keep writing 5x per week (especially with the Tour coming up), but:

  1. If I don’t feel it’s up to snuff, I skip a day
  2. If you don’t feel it’s up to snuff, you let me know (privately by email at gv@gerard.cc, via the comments section of the offending post or via twitter)
And then after the Tour, we re-evaluate. Deal? BTW, I’m just happy “enough already, just stop” didn’t win the poll!

    As someone who loves to sell your product here in Canada, I have often commented to my co-workers that you @ Cervelo have got it down to a science. Things like BTP and your blog here give you and your Company/Team a distinctive “human” feel, and I feel that it helps with sales, and creates a loyalty that other brands don’t offer.

    I have always felt that Cervelo was a team for the fans, and I hope to enjoy many more of your blogs/videos/etc as seeing the real life, raw side of cycling has become much more appealing to me than the mainly surface content of the past.

    Thanks for taking such a passionate approach to cycling.

    P.S. Thank you for brainbike 2011 this year. It was and amazing experience.

    • Thanks for the kind words Aaron, much appreciated. For Brainbike, don’t thank me, thank the hard-working people in the Toronto office. Glad it was a good experience though!
