Yet another great post from one of my new favorite blogs, Big Contrarian. Here he tackles the subject of the state of the blog landscape (a lot of crap), and posits some very useful suggestions on how to generate traffic:
There are only three requirements Iâ€™ve ever sussed out from reading excellent sites. Write well, write often, and write with passion. It seems if you can manage that, youâ€™ll find an audience.
Despite the utter-bullshit so much of the Andersonâ€™s long tail has proven to be, the core idea that everything finds an audience should be held up and remembered. Clung to fastidiously; A life raft for the ignored, for the invisible.
If youâ€™re worth reading, someone will read you. If youâ€™re worth watching, someone will watch you. If youâ€™re worth hearing, someone will listen.
Couldn’t agree more.
