Blogging 101

Since I can't seem to get on the right track with this blogging thing, I decided I needed to start reading other blogs - specifically, blogs about blogs - and try to gather some inspiration for my own.  So far it has felt as though I was wandering around in the dark bumping into things in cyberspace somewhat like one of those silver balls in a pachinko machine. 

I came across Mark Suster's blog entitled "Why Startups Need to Blog (and what to talk about...)" and found some good advice with interesting ideas that hadn't ocurred to me before.  And because Mark's blog has been liked and reposted and tweeted and retweeted thousands of times, I thought it would be worthwhile to "reblog" his post here.  I'll make it bite-sized info over 6 or 7 posts, and while I know this has nothing whatsoever to do with music or Rock Dove or Gordy & me, it will help reinforce blogging ideas in my own head the more I read or write them again.

So if you wanna learn about blogging, stay here!  

Mark's intro begins:

"Editor’s Note: This is a guest post by Mark Suster (@msuster), a 2x entrepreneur, now VC at GRP Partners. Read more about Suster at Bothsidesofthetable

Blogs. We all read them to get a sense of what is going on in the world, peeling back layers of the old world in which media was too scripted.

By definition, if you are reading this you read blogs. But should you actually write one if you’re a startup, an industry figure (lawyer, banker) or VC? Absolutely.

This is a post to help you figure out why you should write and what you should talk about"
