Blogosphere

Recommended reading

Saturday morning, and time for the weekly digest of interesting blog posts I read this week.

Speaking of interesting, Seth Godin writes that all of us have interesting lives but might not know how to present ourselves as interesting. He gives two tips: truth and surprise. Read Are you interesting?

Tim Lawrence has it right: when bad things happen to good people, it’s not because “everything happens for a reason.” Read Everything Doesn’t Happen For a Reason

Remember the fellow who played Wesley Crusher on Star Trek: The Next Generation? Wil Wheaton blogs, and this week wrote a great post about why a company that wants to republish your blog post (or photo, or art, or whatever) should pay you. Read you can’t pay your rent with “the unique platform and reach our site provides”

Longtime Down the Road reader Lone Primate writes a fascinating take on Canadian identity, personal and political. Read When did we become a nation?

    You’ve done it again, Jim. What a great selection you’ve presented! It will take me a while to internalize the many lessons in Tim Lawrence’s piece — but I intend to put Seth Godin’s and Wil Wheaton’s advice to work right away. Thank you, as always.
