Funny piece by Lore Sjöberg in Wired News titled “The Ultimate Blog Post”.
One great graf: “Creating your own blog is about as easy as creating your own urine, and you’re about as likely to find someone else interested in it. One popular technique for building readership is to send e-mail to more well-trafficked blogs offering to exchange links with them. One popular response from those blogs is to laugh derisively and hit the Delete button.”
The article goes on to lay out “ultimate” posts for a number of blogs, including Boing Boing, FARK, Slashdot, Kottke, Make, and Digg. Good stuff.
