Blogging More

I wrote my first blog post for DavidCrow.ca, roughly 11 years ago on the day Douglas Adams passed away from a heart attack.  It is hard to believe that I have been doing this unsuccessfully for 11 years. Strangely, I had my heart attack roughly 5 years later on May 30, 2006, maybe heart trouble is the common thread through my blog.

I need to get in the habit of blogging more. I have been woefully neglectful of my blog. Unlike Joey, who seems to have found time to blog multiple times per day. I need to follow the advice of Mark Suster and Fred Wilson (more), and just make blogging part of my daily activities. (I probably need to try to make other things like a walking desk part of my daily activities too). I’ve written a lot of posts for StartupNorth, but I haven’t been as dedicated to my own blog.

Here are some of my favorite posts:

 Back to it I guess.

    I’m not always sure being prolific is all it’s cracked up to be. When you write, it’s worth reading, and that’s really all that matters. Happy blogiversary!

    Blogging is hard! I’m loving link blogging, which is easier but also jogs my brain for long form. I find I’ve never managed to to write for StartupNorth because my writing is sucked up by my own site. So, I think you are blogging, you’re just doing it on SN. Maybe get in the habit of cross posting?

    blogging is hard especially if you want to produce quality content. Personally, I am finding that spending time replying to questions on Quora and commenting on interesting blogs sites such as Mark Mcleod, Mark Evans, Fred wilson, Brad Feld, Eric Ries and many others is equally as satisfying as writing a blog. Also, it is a fantastic ‘people’ discovery process and helps generates ideas for future blog posts

      Power commenting is as rewarding and useful as blogging. It helps you to expand your network.

    Just do it. Don’t rack your brains too much on it. You have so much you can blog about. The trend is for simple, 2-3 paragraphs and let the rest be part of the commenting/discussions that ensues. You have so many followers.

    I suggest lean more towards Fred Wilson’s style which consists of simpler and shorter posts than Mark Suster’s which are heady essays. 

    Remember this- A post is one idea. Just one idea. One thought. If you have one thought or idea per day, you can blog it. 

    Hey, I’m guilty of the same and should do more of it too. It’s like therapy.
