Robert Scoble listed this as one of his social media tenets:
Rule #13 of Corporate Blogging Manifesto is “don’t write” if going through personal turmoil.
I feel like this rule would be something with which I would (and probably will) struggle. I have an unholy tendency to want to use my published words to vent my personal feelings in a what Bill refers to ever-so-often as “blitching.”
When the world turns against me, I suddenly feel like a more clever writer and in those moments, I know the world would enjoy my “artistic” rants. But I’ve come to the realization that that is probably not always true.
People like to read things that are cleverly written, but they also like to read things that are helpful and relate to them in some way.
So here are some HELPful tips from Bill if you also find yourself tempted to take a bite from the Apple of “blitching” (For those using a Mac, like me, the capital A is warranted!) :
Thanks for the great tips, Bill!
Hope this helps some of you!
