Blasts From the Past

Here are some blasts from the past I’ve written that still are interesting today:

Blog Herald Columns

Recent articles on the included:

  • My Blog is a Resource For Me. Is It? This was a short post that has gotten a lot of positive attention and negative responses, which surprised me. I thought it was one of those “this goes without saying” kind of posts. I mention a blogger who told me that his blog was a resource for him (what he really said was “My blog is for me and only for me.”) and I thought he’s right, but he’s also a bit wrong. When you hit the Publish button, your blog becomes about who reads it, too.
  • I Need to Comment More. Don’t You? I’ve been traveling and so busy lately, I’ve forgotten to comment on other blogs so I wrote a kick ass reminder to myself and others that we can’t forget the “communication” part of the definition of blog.
  • Internet Explorer 8 Getting Ready for You is a reminder that the web browser is our blogging friend, and IE8 is getting ready to hit the streets. I just hope we web designers are ready for it.
  • Should Journalists Be Required to Comment? Should Bloggers? A year ago I ran across an article about how CNet is requiring their journalists to comment on their other journalists blogs, and it got me thinking. A lot of people starting thinking about this and sharing their comments on the issue, too.
  • Don’t Blog About That Which You Understand Not is a simple thought, but some had problems with it. For me, there is nothing more important that blogging 1) what you know, 2) what you are passionate about, and 3) what you know best.
