Traction named blog you should read
Traction was just named in an article by Michael Estrin of iMediaConnection titled "5 agency blogs you should be reading." Why? Here's an excerpt:
It's hard to pigeonhole the Traction blog. Sometimes you get funny posts that are somewhat related to the industry, like this one in which the agency's creative director explains why he isn't Don Draper for the digital age. Other times you get posts that aren't related to advertising at all, like this recipe for garlic mash potatoes.
We'll chalk those two posts (and others of that variety) up to Traction's unique culture. But if your boss wants to know why you're reading a blog that seems a little off the wall, you can always show them this...
... Honestly, I can't tell if I come for the distractions and stay for the knowledge or vice versa. But it really doesn't matter. When I check in with Traction, I'm always entertained, and I usually leave the blog with some extra knowledge. Not bad.
