Benn Rosales is the Founder and CEO of The American Genius (AG), national news network. Before AG, he founded one of the first digital media strategy firms in the nation has received the Statesman Texas Social Media Award and is an Inman Innovator Award winner. He has consulted for numerous startups (both early- and late-stage), and is well known for organizing the digital community through popular offline events. He does not venture into the spotlight often, rather he believes his biggest accomplishments are the talent he recruits and develops, so he gives all credit to those he's empowered.

    What’s wrong with being a multi-author blog? Isn’t the definition a blog with several authors? We can talk semantics, but I guess I’m not catching the difference except if you’ve been reading the backlash against M.A.

    The circle reminds me of the Whos down in Whoville. 🙂

    This is exactly why it’s one of the only Blogs that I recommend my students go and read… Not trying to inflate any egos, but here I know they’ll get content that isn’t intended to just get noticed. It’s a fantastic group of contributers. The best I’ve seen thus far…

    I see no problem with MA blogs at all. I subscribe to many of such blogs.

    “we’re different just like everyone else.”
    AAAAAAAAAAAAAANYway…you are certainly more upbeat than the rest.

    No names, no names.

    But…it’s always inhereintly limiting (or self righteous) to compare ones self to others.

    I write for GeekEstateBlog, an MA blog, so don’t have a problem either. The talent at AgentGenuis is the best in blogging, of course. Here’s my solution. You can call it a constructive content blah-de-blah.
    …I’ll call it a “multi-author talent pool of blog goodness”.

    I write for AG because I was invited. I had no idea that I would be welcomed into a group of supportive, positive people. You can go anywhere – blog, tv, radio, newspaper – to find negative sound bites. What I appreciate about AG is the thoughtfulness of the writing and the willingness to share ideas and make suggestions as opposed to the automatic response of our nature as humans to gravitate and be hypnotized by the rubber-necking and ambulance chasing that perpetuates the rest of our lives.

    In my mind, it takes tremendous strength and fortitude to be positive and create a forum of new, fresh ideas. It takes effort to be constructive. It’s simple and formulaic to follow the paths of others to avoid criticism. Being a trailblazer is no easy task. It comes with much sacrifice, work and sometimes ridicule. Rock on AG.

    AgentGenius is, both by definition and in practice, a multi-author blog AND a Constructive Content Community. Much like Vicki, I write for AG because I was invited. I accepted that invitation because it was pretty clear to me right up front that what is being done here at AG is a little bit different than what is found at the run-of-the-mill MAB. It’s good, but not perfect, and it is always improving. There is a collaboration and cooperation that is unique, and there is a good blend of the conceptual and the factual.

    You can call it whatever you want, but I call it a juicy, satisfying, steak that lives up to the promise of the it’s seductive sizzle.

    whatever you want to call it – I am honored to be a part of it, even when I disagree with some of the contributors I have not felt embarrassed or ashamed to be a part of this group. The discussion is always healthy and we can agree to disagree… I love Benn and Lani watching my back 😉

    Ah, but isn’t it genius to call itself something else and arouse discussion?

    I am also very thankful to be a part of the community, surrounded by such talent.
