Content IS King

Pete Blackshaw and his post yesterday on Ten Reasons Why I Should Stop Blogging hits the nail on the head with regard to blogging. Speaks right to my heart as someone who runs this part-time, personal blog effort (I actually started long before a crowded blogosphere existed).

Knowing that I have a hard enough time getting my gabillion thoughts out of my head for my personal posting - I have crazily enough considered doing a blog with more topical focus (where I would then presumably schedule the effort needed as tasks into my daily live).

My hinderences to this are are:

  • Everything Pete lists in his post
  • Figuring out the specific subject matter I would focus on (I do the lazy version, now, and laziness, apparently, suits me).

At the end of the day (cliche alert) - "Content is King". Don't know who said that, but, yep - I think they got it right.

UPDATES (yes, already)

1) Demonstrative of my above discussed laziness lives within this post itslef (genius at work?) - I failed to mention that I found Pete's entry by way of Matt Blumberg and Only Once. Matt's blog, by the way, in my opinion, stands strong against each of Pete's points and is quite a stellar example of a focused, well-maintained, compelling content-based blog. A great example of what a blogger should strive for.

2) Just out of curiosity, I checked to see if was available. Sadly, it is in use, and sadder still, look at it...

Ah, the irony of it all. Content IS king, and needs content!
