On blogging, Darwin, homepages, and self-esteem 13:19 on Wednesday
I’m getting all tired about this string of posts I’ve written about blogging lately. But I had a 3 hour long chat with a friend last night and as an almost-blog-virgin he had some great insight:
- 1st requirement of blogging: “You need self-esteem, because without self-esteem you don’t do fuck with a blog.”
- Homepage: Plain HTML site with old content, of which too much is on the way of the only reason to come to the site: To find the company’s phone number.
- And no matter which way we looked at blogging, a form of content darwinism always emerged: Be interesting or be nothing. The key is to find your niche. (I know it’s not a good term, but I just wanted to sound cooler than I am and refer to Darwin.)
- Bonus for Finnish readers: niche translates to soiro.
