- A lot of serious bloggers became so because frankly, they had too much time on their hands. And often there were good reasons for that.
- Far too much time is spent watching people make money directly off their blogs [e.g. advertising revenues etc], as opposed to indirectly [e.g. becoming an authority on something, and using said authority to enhance your already-existing business]. I believe the latter is a far more pleasant, effective and more likely way to do well.
- I hardly ever leave comments on other people’s blogs any more.
- The day you can write and compellingly and consistently as say, Kathy Sierra, Jeff Jarvis, Guy Kawasaki or Michael Arrington, will be the day I start taking your complaints of low traffic seriously.
- Blogging will never be a mainstream activity so long as being able to write well and often remains the main barrier to entry.
