Maria Langer: Celebrating Eight Years Blogging

We make jokes about Renaissance men, but I’d like to introduce you to a Renaissance woman in the truest sense of the reference. Maria Langer is a lot of things, in addition to a dear friend. Even before we were on a first name basis, she was a mentor and inspiration to me. In honor […]

Tips for Blogging September 11 Ten Years Later

Over the past few weeks I’ve listened, read, watched, and pondered a quilt of stories around the World Trade Center attacks of September 11, 2001, as the world celebrates/honors/remembers the event 10 years later. There are first hand stories of those who were in the buildings, rescuing people or escaping; stories by watchers, waiters, victims, […]

By Greg Balanko-Dickson Lorelle mentioned in an email today, “I’ve been asked by many readers that they would love to crawl inside your head and find out how you write content.” I have long thought about sharing my approach.

Almost two years now and what have I learned from blogging?

By Pelf Nyok I started blogging in October 2005, in what started as an experiment to see whether I would be able to sustain the enthusiasm long enough to take it seriously. Back when I did not know what blogging was all about, I was constantly worried about publishing a post on a daily basis, […]

The Oldest Living Blogger – 84 Years and Blogging

The Blogging Journalist directed me to “A New Wrinkle on Blogging” from Pantagraph, an article about Prescott “Pete” Lustig, an 84 year old blogger who blogs at The Late Life Crisis. As the name of his blog implies, Lustig believes “late life” is more descriptive and less patronizing than the term ‘senior citizen.’ He started […]

It’s About Access

If you have a few minutes today, watch this. Oh, watch it anyway. And share it. It won a Webby, the equivalent of the Oscar for the web world. And I have to admit that at the end, I cried. Seriously. Like those in the satirical episode, I don’t live in the wildest woolliest of […]

Inspired by these blog exercises, Janet Williams of Janet’s Notebook has been taking her readers on a journey back through time and space, exploring her family’s Chinese heritage from her little corner of the south of England.

Blog Exercises: Leave Room for the Reader

“You must leave room for the viewer to rest and breath as they look at your photograph.” These wise words were told to me by a long-time professional photographer, gone these many years. As I studied with her and others saying similar things, I began to understand what they meant and applied it eventually to […]

The Loss a Great Man: Nelson Mandela

The news has arrived. It is true that the world has lost a great hero, Nelson Mandela. A couple years ago I wrote an extensive tribute and reference article on Nelson Mandela when rumors of his death flooded the web. He lived long past the rumors, but today, the rumors come to an end. Whether […]

Blog Exercises: I Don’t Trust That Site

I recommended an article to a student and they said they didn’t trust that site, thus shed doubt on my personal integrity. I asked why. “Because it’s on Blogspot.” Wow.
