So I’m getting back into this whole blogging thing. And I had forgotten how much one needs to promote themselves to get anywhere at it. The other day I was listening to 24 Cast, and they mentioned that they had gotten themselves listed on PodcastAlley.com, and it made me think of what I’ve been doing and reminded me of Technorati, Bloglines and such. I haven’t spent any time signing up for those things with this site yet. I’ll eventually get around to it. If I want this to take off, it seems that stuff is key.
I read a lot of sites daily, everything from webcomics to tech blogs to politics. It’s not rare to find something interesting on any of these sites, but it is rare to find something truly inspiring. Two weeks ago, I was inspired to learn that Apple enthusiast/writer John Gruber of DaringFireball.net took a daring leap into the unknown by quitting his job to attempt blogging for a living. His justification?
In short: You should love what you do for a living and do what you love for a living.
