What makes a good blog?

First read this a while ago, came across it again recently. Should be compulsory reading for all bloggers. Then maybe we’d have less self-indulging, emotionally-insecure teenagers blogging about why they’re bored and other tripe. You know who you are!

…remember: nobody cares which N*Sync member you are, what State you are, which Party of Five kid you are, or which Weezer song you are. the second you put one of those things on your blog you need to delete your blog and try out for the marching band. similarilly, nobody gives a shit what the weather is like in your town, nobody wants you to change their cursor into a butterfly, nobody wants to vote on whether your blog is hot or not, and nobody gives a rat ass what song youre listening to. write something Real for you, about you, every day…

So true. So very very true. The author also won a Bloggie (the blogging industry’s night of nights, apparently) for this effort.
