15-year-old New Zealander competes for U.S. Ad Dollars
Steve Rubel in Advertising Age sees this as proof that "the world is flat": in other words, with broadband, even a kid from the bottom of the planet can make waves in the U.S. media world.
But Glenn Wolsey is no ordinary 15-year-old. Take a look at his blog. He writes about using Mac products for work and play. The blog is totally professional, and also has the unmistakable smell of youth. What an unbeatable combination for success on the web. He gets "tens of thousands" of visitors each month.
What about Glenn's language? He can pick 'n'mix with the most sophisticated. In his interview on AdAge, he sounds like someone twice his age, a master of marketing lingo. He edits MacGuide like a pro, because of course he is a pro.
He describes his highly successful blog like so:
Here I post views on technology related matters, along with reviews, articles, experiences, and tutorials. This isn't your typical personal blog, I'm opinionated and proud.
