The Heart of a Really Decent Blog
These are the ones that keep me coming back and add value to my life. They make a difference- plain and simple.
For example, I've learned to facilitate meetings smarter as a result of Manager Tools. I've also become a more simple person as a result of Zen Habits. I could go on and on.
I've found a kinship with the bloggers I follow because we have one thing in common, although our topics may differ: joy. At the heart of blogging is the sheer, simple desire to share and create. When we do this, joy is the result.
There is a magical distance between having an idea and then creating a blog post to extrapolate its core. Imagine being able to do this once, twice or more during a given week. This is why experts argue that leaders are missing a huge opportunity if they don't blog. Imagine then the unique bridge with potential readers. Genuine friendships can form as a result.
To me it's simply about joy.
