Probably one of the higher caliber posts I’ve read in a long time, called Future of Blogging by ViperChill.
How does one find such remarkable content? One knows it, when one sees it.
It’s not always right on the surface, but when you find something remarkable tell people, it’s your job.
Well, I consider it my job, and so should you. Slackers.
In his post, Glen shares why people are seeking the highest quality content and if you want the attention of people, it’s time to get on it. You gotta dig deep and find stuff you know your audience will love.
Share Remarkable Content – Align Your Brand With Quality
I gotta admit, I keep gems like this to myself sometimes. Sorry, but I don’t like having to play content filter man.
There’s been quite a few times where I have come across something, and I wanted to share it, but I was too greedy and I didn’t. I didn’t want you to find what I found, it took me forever to find it, while you’re just aimlessly tweeting your life into oblivion, I’m onto something.
That’s a little bit of an exaggeration, but the point is I just didn’t share as I came across it. I always wanted to act on the information first.
I know, sounds retarded. Bite me.
I don’t want to be like that. I’m trying to change, to be a better sharer, ya dig?
Forgive my actions, I will find good stuff, and share it with open arms.
See, I’m trying to be good, I’m handing it over to you before I even have a second to reflect on it.
So if you’re ready for this, I’m opening the floodgates of sharing. I’m taking you to the promised land.
You’ll be sitting here reading a 12,000 word blog post, coming up with all kinds of ideas, and then what.
You’re gonna take those ideas, and you’re going to sit on em. Yep, put em on the shelf and you’re going to share that post because that’s what I did. Sucks doesn’t it. That’s called quality. That’s hall of fame right there.
It’s the kind of stuff that’ll make you famous. Maybe just for a bit, but you can do it again, as often as you’d like. Just do quality, that’s it and nothing else. I’m talking mouth watering, home cooked meal, type quality.
So at this point, I feel like we’re on the same page.
You’ll be doing the blogosphere a favor, because that’s what we do for each other. I’m serious. You sit down and write 12,000 words, and put some data into it. Data that makes you wanna stop in the middle of the post and start changing things.
You can spare 30 seconds for this guy, that just spent months creating it so you can piggyback his lifes work. Show some respect.
No more acting like robots. We don’t need Google telling us what to do.
Blog and read, read and comment, comment and read and blog and read and comment. Let’s just take a moment, stop grandstanding all your skills and just say something real.
Go back and just go crazy with it. That’s what it’s for. It’s meant to push you.
We’re here to push each other, to share good information when we see it, not try to be the one cashing in on every possible fragment of information out there.
I see this kind of content to be priceless. It’s a sincere effort to educate other people, to push ourselves, and to become better at what we do.
