Daring Fireball - Obsession Times Voice
43 Folders - 43f Podcast: John Gruber & Merlin Mann’s Blogging Panel at SxSW
I miss his blog but if I’m serious about my own blog (and there’s doubt about that) then I’m glad my blog is not competing with an active raganwald (and I don’t compete with raganwald in any literal sense.) In the audio of Mann and Gruber’s talk, Merlin says something like your blog needs to be better than 80% of the other blogs that are focused on the same obsession. I recall Scott Adams, creator of Dilbert, writing that he greatly admired Gary Larson’s The Far Side and Bill Watterson’s Calvin and Hobbes and was consequently very glad when those strips ceased and ‘left the field.’
Now go read raganwald and see what you missed.
