I talk to a lot of folks about the idea of blogging and how using it as a tool for being open and transparent about their thoughts, experiences, and opinions could help them and their businesses or organizations.
Though… for quite a few people, the idea of writing freaks them out. They start over thinking what they’re writing and more or less take themselves out of what they’re writing. This makes the blog infinitely less compelling.
In an interview with Jon Stewart, Arianna Huffington shares some pearls of wisdom. She calls blogging a “first draft of history” and encourages people to not over think what they’re writing. She considers blogging to be more like e-mailing with your friends.
