A couple of nice blogging related articles… Seth Godin wrote a succinct summary of what makes a good blog post:

How to write a blog post, he says, involves:

      – An appropriate illustration
      – A useful topic, easily broadened to be useful to a large number of readers
      – Simple language with no useless jargon
      – Not too long
      – Focusing on something that people have previously taken for granted
      – That initially creates emotional resistance
      – Then causes a light bulb to go off
    – Causes the reader to look at the world differently all day long.

All good stuff, although the last point is maybe a little ambitious for all posts!
