Wisdom for Bloggers – Quotes on Blogging

  1. Blogging is best learned by blogging…and by reading other bloggers. George Siemens
  2. Blogging is like work, but without coworkers thwarting you at every turn. Scott Adams
  3. It doesn’t matter if anyone reads (your blog). What matters is the humility that comes from writing it. What matters is the metacognition of thinking about what you’re going to say. How do you explain yourself to the few employees, or your cat, or whoever is going to look at it? How do you force yourself to describe in three paragraphs why you did something? How do your respond out loud? If you’re good at it, some people are going to read it. If you’re not good at it and you stick with it, you’ll get good at it. Basically, you’re doing it for yourself to force yourself to become part of the conversation. Seth Godin
  4. A blog is only as interesting as the interest shown in others. Lee Odden
  5. No single thing in the past 15 years professionally has been more important in my life than blogging. It has changed my life. It had changed my perspective. It had changed my intellectual outlook. It has changed my emotional outlook. And it’s the best damned marketing tool by an order of magnitude I’ve ever had. And it’s free. Tom Peters
  6. Blogging is a great way to show your talents and interests to prospective employers, while adding an edge to your resume. If you blog consistently it shows your dedication, passions and creativity – all of which are key attributes employers look for in job candidates. Lauren Conrad
  7. Don’t try to plan everything out to the very last detail. I’m a big believer in just getting it out there:  create a minimal viable product or website, launch it, and get feedback. Neil Patel
  8. My blogging life is basically goalless. I like the zen nature of that, and paradoxically, it improves results. Seth Godin
  9. Blogging is good for your career. A well-executed blog sets you apart as an expert in your field. Penelope Trunk
  10. The goal in blogging is to share a truth, or at least a truth as the writer sees it. To not just share it, but to spread it and to cause change to happen. You can do that in at least three ways:  with research (your own or reporting on others), by building and describing conceptual structures, or with stories that resonate. Seth Godin
