Blogging for fun & profit
Boing Boing et al.
Since 2011, I've written thousands of blog posts professionally, literally thousands of them.
Problem: The internet is hungry for the Next Big Thing 24/7/365.
Solution: Regularly check RSS feed favorites, keep an ear to the ground, listen to my intuition, and give the people what they want, or at least, what I think they want. Succeed or fail, then try again.
Result: I've developed a Spidey sense about what makes good content. Blogging has also shaped me into an excellent marketer.
