Guy Kawasaki reports on ten things he learned from his first hundred days of blogging. Interesting and (somewhat) unexpected observations:
- Kawasaki says that "blogging technology is a piece of cake", but he's still spending a lot of effort and cred getting people to help him out with various TypePad plug-ins. Many these would be very easy indeed in a client-side tool like Tinderbox; the hard thing isn't generating link targets and tables of contents for Guy Kawasaki, the hard thing is generating the for everybody.
Scott Johnson has an interesting, anecdotal note about the difficulties of planning and executing agile software that has to be shared by everybody, right away.
- Guy finds that thin skins correlate with weblog popularity. My guess is that the two are actually uncorrelated, but we're so accustomed to the thick skins that old-school journalists necessarily acquire that we expect bloggers to act like hard-bitten newsroom veterans.
- "It's hard to make much money blogging," he writes. Of course, Kawasaki is a venture capitalist; your definition of "much money" might vary.
