Do you believe in your content?

Over at Disruptive Thoughts, Fraser Kelton continued an interesting theme sparked by Kent Newsome. See: “Really believe in your content” (by Fraser) and “10/90 and the Rule of the Reallies” (by Kent)

Both postings explore this quandary: Every blogger loves to spark conversation (especially via comments, and via related and linked postings in other blogs).

Lazily tossing out a single paragraph and expecting it to generate any discussion is a bit of self delusion. If your style is serious, get out there and really expound on a subject. If your style is humorous, then get after it and spin a good yarn. Make a point and explain it all.
