Seth on the death of the personal blog

From BlogAsheville:

Many local bloggers have neglected their blogs recently, with varying reasons/excuses.

So, do bloggers need a bailout too? No. Read Seth’s take on the personal blog demise:

There’s a difference between a blog about YOU… and a blog about the reader. Guy Kawasaki’s blog, and my blog for that matter, are not about us, about what we ate yesterday or how great we are. They are about you, the reader.

I guess there’s an easy analogy:
Your blog could be like a newspaper (written by a staff)
or it could be like a book (written by an author)

So, enough about me. How about you?

The point is not to show up on a list, the point is to start a conversation that spreads, to share ideas and to chronicle your thinking.
