I don’t very often refer to other blogs (well, pretty much never), but this is just irresistible.
The inimitable Copyblogger delights us with the Winnie the Pooh Guide to Blogging!
Here’s the short form:
“You can’t stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.”
“If the person you are talking to doesn’t appear to be listening, be patient. It may simply be that he has a small piece of fluff in his ear.”
“You can’t help respecting anybody who can spell TUESDAY, even if he doesn’t spell it right; but spelling isn’t everything. There are days when spelling Tuesday simply doesn’t count.”
“It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like “What about lunch?””
“I don’t see much sense in that,” said Rabbit. “No,” said Pooh humbly, “There isn’t. But there was going to be when I began it. It’s just that something happened to it along the way.”
Well there you have it. The Winnie the Pooh approach to blogging.
Adorable? Delightful? Cuddly?
Simply irresistible. And effective. 😉
