I quote Seth Godin every once in a while because he has great things to say, every once in a while. Here's one about blogging and business.
"A blogger starts measuring pageviews and ends up racing to the bottom with nothing but scintillating gossip and pandering. Or, perhaps, he/she decides to use the blog as a platform to take herself and her readers somewhere they will be glad to go ... There's no rigid line between a job and art. Instead, there's an opportunity."
Becoming a highly rated blog is not only a matter of having the most readers. I value more having the most interesting and dedicated readers. In the last few weeks I've had some wonderful comments about what we publish here. Thank you all. Without readers, the writing wouldn't matter one little bit.
