“Every morning I start my day with a big cup of coffee, in my pastures. I like to be there when the sun comes up. And every evening I end my day with a seven hundred and fifty milliliter glass of wine in my pastures. I like to be there when the sun goes down. And I really don’t much care what I have to do between those two events. But it really ticks me off if I miss one of them.”
He had me at “seven hundred and fifty milliliter glass of wine”.
Boing Boing’s Rob Beschizza on How to blog (from a talk he gave at Washington & Jefferson College about “careers in blogging”):
If ever blogging was for merely blathering on about oneself, it isn’t any more. Social networking created a better venue for personal sharing. But what some people don’t realize is that successful bloggers never did this to begin with. You’re only as interesting as the things you do, find or say. Even if you’re a fantastically gifted writer, if you make your work solely about you, you won’t just bore your readers: you’ll eventually get bored of yourself and give up.
Ouch. Not even sure how to respond to this. Linking to it here for future reference. (2 comments)
