No. Seriously. It’s like this. What the best teachers of writing tell you–and I did have some of the best under Leslie Fiedler at UB–is this simple secret: Don’t take writing or English classes to learn how to write. Take philosophy, take history, take music, take anything but. It is the context that surrounds your voice that informs what you say.
So too with blogging. Don’t paint it as a discipline. Don’t cloak it in a methodology, Don’t sully it with law. Live and grow, be bold enough to say what you see, and powerful blogging will follow. And if it doesn’t follow us into business, then all the better. Because business will have to rearrange its context to keep up.
I don’t know what to think of this. I like it in spirit, but in practice, who doesn’t blog about blogging. Including… um… her own criticism?
