een subjectieve blik op de wereld.

future of journalism.

A blog can be used to brainstorm,
discuss topics,
and gather your thoughts.

Chris Garrett

I look at the whole blog thing as a big party,
and everybody is trying to meet each other
trying to build their cliques,
as with any social function.

Gary Lee

You have to work
on your blog for some time
and maintain your passion
before it turns into anything.

Philipp Lenssen

I don’t decide to blog
and then look for something.
I find something and then I blog it.

Rebecca Lieb

The really popular blogs
are the ones where readers can tell
the author is passionate about the topic.

Richard MacManus

Don’t write anything in a blog
hat you would't say to someone face-to-face.

Scott McNulty

You have to be passionate and interested
in what you’re blogging about.
Otherwise, you're just not going to last.

John Neff

I eat,
and breathe my blog.

Deborah Petersen

Blogs can be
an excellent self-study tool.

than it used to be.

Google is the reason
blogging continues to have power.

A blog is a great way to test a concept

a large audience with a low barrier entry.

For me, blogging is about passion. It’s about finding something you want to share with other people, and maybe just getting more familiar with yourself.

Frank Warren

Focus on producing a blog
that’s great for your readers.

Brian Clark

As a blogger,
everything that you do flows
from understanding your audience
and seeking to help them
as much as possible.

Mike Butcher

Blogging is a conversation,
not a code.


Blogging is like work,
but without coworkers
thwarting you at every turn.

A blog is only as interesting
as the interest shown in others.

Simon Dumenco

Blogging is just writing
writing using a particularly efficient type
of publishing technology.

Andrew Sullivan

Blog what you live,
don't live to blog.


Blogging is to writing
what extreme sports are to athletics:

More free-form, more accident-prone,
less formal, more alive.
It is, in many ways, writing out loud.

Tom Foremski

Blogging is a communications mechanism
handed to us by
the long tail of the Internet.

Michael Conniff

Blogs are whatever we make them.
Defining 'Blog' is a fool's errand.

Ron Dawson

The first thing you need to decide
when you build your blog
is what you want to accomplish with it,
and what it can do if successful.

Neil Patel

Where the Internet is about availability of information,
blogging is about making information creation
available to anyone.

Joshua Micah Marshall

I think of us as journalists;
the medium we work in is blogging.

David Sinick

There are tons of different factors
that go into ranking well,
but the biggest is high-quality content.

Your ultimate consumers
are your users,
not search engines.

Sufia Tippu

Blogging is hard because of the grind
required to stay interesting and relevant.

Neil Patel

If you want to continually grow your blog,
you need to learn to blog
on a consistent basis.

Yaro Starak

You can work quite hard, in particular online, and do quite well independently, but if you really want to grow you need points of leverage and most of them come from knowing people.

Seth Godin

If you love writing or making music or blogging or any sort of performing art, then do it. Do it with everything you’ve got. Just don’t plan on using it as a shortcut to making a living.

Pat Flynn

When blogging first became popular, many thought that it was just a passing trend. But it has stuck around – and more than that, only strengthened over time.

Social media is around for the long haul because we value our relationships with one another above just about everything else. A blog entry isn’t just a block of text, but a slice of humanity and an opportunity to begin a real conversation.

Syed Balkhi

Social media is not about one time hits.
It’s about building
a loyal following over time.

First-time bloggers often chase the big spikes in traffic that come with a viral post or a big media mention. Then lightning finally strikes … and they come to realize that those surges in traffic are made up mostly of people who aren’t very engaged and who don't stick around for very long.

Instead, follow Syed’s advice and focus on building a loyal following of regular readers. That’s the strategy that Syed has used to make year.

Matt Wolfe

What you do after you create your content
is what truly counts.

Luke Langford

The term 'Professional Blogger
is no longer an oxymoron.

John Chow

Making money from blogging
requires you to do only two things:
Drive a lot traffic,
then maximize the income
from that traffic.

Darren Rowse

It should feel genuinely good to earn income from your blog – you should be driven by a healthy ambition to succeed. If your blog provides genuine value, you fully deserve to earn income from it.

Never try to trick somebody into giving you their money. Even if it works, it's a short-term way to make money online.

Adrienne Smith

Successful people
don’t spam.

Penelope Trunk

Blogging is good for your career.
A well-executed blog sets you apart
as an expert in your field.

Increasingly, employers are interested in hiring people who’ve cultivated an influential online presence. So sometimes the best resume is a blog.

A well-maintained blog establishes your authority in a niche by showcasing your knowledge and dedication to the topic.

Dick Costolo

The Internet destroyed most of the barriers to publication. The cost of being a publisher dropped to almost zero with two interesting immediate results: anybody can publish, and more importantly, you can publish whatever you want.

Of course, just because you can write anything you want while blogging, that doesn’t mean that you should.

Liz Strauss

The Internet
has no eraser.

Blogger Liz Strauss explained in an interview why it’s so important to be conscientious about everything that you publish online:

"Your children, your grandchildren, your future spouse, your future boss, and your future enemy will see what you write eventually. Speak the truth with your head connected to your heart.

Write with integrity and you never have to worry about your words coming back to haunt you.

David Risley

There are no lines in the sand in the blogosphere
except for those who draw those lines
in an effort to get attention.

Chris Brogan

If you accept all the praise,
you have to accept all the critics.

Brian Clark
