Bloggers rock: The best of the best

See on Scoop.itM-learning, E-Learning, and Technical Communications

Sitting at my computer at 3:00 AM, eyes bleary, tired as hell, I am confronted with the blank blog page, a twinge of nausea. A question suddenly hits me in the forehead. Why do we bloggers do it? …

Danielle M. Villegas‘s insight:

Darin Hammond has done it again. If you haven’t noticed, he’s becoming one of MY favorite bloggers. This article truly explains why I do what I do, and why he does what he does. It’s totally correct its point. We don’t do it for the money (although that would be nice to be making a living doing what we do–maybe someday, Darin!), but for the sheer thrill of sharing and bringing together a community. I’m learning a lot from his blog–go bookmark it in your browser now (after bookmarking this one)!

  1. To live deeply and to connect. This is why we blog. Darin sums it up perfectly.
