A Must Read For Anyone Interested In Blogging

Posted April 11, 2005, 09:50 PM | Ideas For Life | Comments (1)

As you can probably tell, I'm a big fan of the blogging phenomenon. There's nothing better than creating real conversations with real people about real ideas. Direct, unsanitized, and on purpose.

This past week I read a great book on blogging aptly titled "Blog: Understanding the Information Reformation" by Hugh Hewitt. It's an easy read with great content.

Mr. Hewitt talks about:
- Why the blogging phenomenon is important
- Where it came from
- How it gained significance
- Why it's still very early in its lifecycle
- What people and organizations can gain by joining in
- Tons of recommended blogs to check out
- How to get started
- How to promote your blog
- And tons of other very helpful information

During my first read, I realized how much of an amateur I am at this medium. During my second read, I'll be making a list of things I can do to get better. I hope you enjoy the upcoming improvements.

Two recommendations:
1. If you haven't already, start a blog! Why not? Share your thoughts. Stake your claim. You'll find great value in the process.
2. Buy this book! I've never met the author and don't have any affiliation with him. I just think it's important for all of us to understand an important cultural phenomenon.


I'm new to blogging too - but now that I've joined, I totally understand the obsession. Sharing your thoughts with others, and getting feedback on your ideas can be fascinating.

And you just never know who you'll hear from next. (Now I just hope my stuff is interesting enough to generate some feedback.)
