I was asked this today in an interview for a book that will come out next year. It was an easy answer – it’s the comments!
There are currently 1,600 posts and 2,999 comments on my blog. I like that – I like reading people’s comments, even if they completely disagree with me, or think I’m an idiot.
Without the comments this blog would just be a diary, or a Journal. I’ve never been good at keeping either. But through conversations on my blog I’ve met two of my three current clients, and people from all over the world.
That’s pretty damned cool!
Also – through my blog I’ve been interviewed for three books and did interviews with The New York Times, The Washington Post and did some technical consulting for a film documentary – all very cool things.
So I didn’t even hesitate when the question was asked – comments, and conversation, is what a blog is all about!
