Someone asked me today why blog? Will Richardson has summarized it well here and here. He also shows exactly why blogging is a great tool. It’s not about the expertise of the writer. It’s about the expertise of all the writers who come, read, and respond with a comment. It’s FABULOUS conversations that stretch my mind, challenge my thinking, and get me to rethink the way I approach topics. That is why I blog. Wil Richardson’s blog seems to embody what it is all about. That is what motivates me to read and comment–to extend the conversation and my own learning.
So, if you are a blogger, please make sure your comments feed is available too. I read 90% from the reader, and so I can follow these invaluable conversation in my reader if there is a comments feed available. If your blog is in my reader with a comments feed, you are more than likely in my favorites or experts folder. Congratulations. The rest of you, get with the conversation! Add a comments feed.
