Bravo Mr Mann

with one comment

This evening I watched Merlin Mann’s speech on blogging and then tracked down the thread of his recent posts on his various sites. As usual, Merlin articulates much more clearly than I, the thoughts I’ve either been having, or wish I had been having. To that end, I’ll leave you with the two things I’ve taken away from this, and then I’m going to ponder the nature of what I’m trying to do with my sites (this one, Wordtrip, CountThatDayLost, etc).

First the general:

If I’m not laughing at your joke, complimenting your insight, or leading the Standing O for something you spent 10 seconds pecking up on your phone, it may not be because I don’t get it; it may be because I think we’re both capable of better and just need to find the courage to say so. In as many characters as it takes.

[From kung fu grippe - Better]

Second the specific to blogging:


PS: and NEXT time I’ll follow the advice of letting it stew for a few days before I post it… honestly.

  1. “I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.” 33 + 11 years is far too short a time for such excellent and admirable hobbit-fans to live in Middle Southern Earth. I can’t believe you didn’t invite me to this party! Maybe I’ll just be the half who turns up anyway. Happy Hobbit Day indeed to all the Pillsburys!
