He he…Couldn’t resist quoting my friend Jeremiah…Thanks, buddy!
Jeremiah and I had a nice discussion earlier today about the different types of blogging and it was a great segue into my woes of not being able to find time to blog. Yes, I was struggling over the last two days to get my stuff in order since I spend an inordinate amount of time crafting each blog post. It took me over 3 hours to craft my Borat piece that’s now on the Daily Fix .
Jeremiah and I then got into discussing the styles of blogging, when he mentioned these great quotable quotes:
It’s a conversation, not a speech
It’s a coffee shop, not a podium
It’s Shish-Kebab, not Steak
So, let’s define Shish-Kebab bloggers as those who are capable of writing several pithy posts a day that grab your attention and incite debate, while Steak bloggers are those (who like me) write an essay a day and there is conversation but less of a debate.
Here’s a breakdown with examples:
Well, here’s my thought process, irrespective of how long you spend, the result is always to provoke thought. What’s important is you’ve got to stir a discussion. Another important aspect of blogging is checking out other blogs & commenting, which I’m doing less nowadays because of time constraints.
So are you a shish-kebab blogger or a steak blogger? Have you faced bloggers-block and how have you overcome it? Feel free to share.
Also, here’s Ann’s “blogging = cocktail party” post and here’s Godin’s “lampchop theory of success”! What’s with all the food and drink metaphors. Looks like we’re having too good a time here.
