I just had an invitation from Mindjet to be badged as one of 14 blogs they consider to be “Trusted Voices”.
I’d like to have the advanced information offered, and access to the Mindjet blog. It can only improve my information source and ability to spread the pro-mapping word.
But I like to think that Mind-Mapping.Org is already everyone’s trusted voice. Surely association with Mindjet puts a doubt in the mind of anyone using Mind-Mapping.Org or reading my blog posts and tweets?
I like MindManager and use it a lot, but when I say that now, it carries more weight than if I had a Mindjet T.V. badge on my site. And I like plenty of other mapping software as well and feel free to say that.
There’s nothing wrong with sites that on-sell MindManager doing this, and most of the others who may accept it (I don’t know who yet) are probably blogging about mind mapping itself more than the software. No “holier-than-thou” feelings here!
