  1. I like Darin’s post–except for the “viral” in the title. No blogger has power over all the things that need to converge to make a post viral. I think it’s counterproductive to set out with “viral” as a goal.

    • I understand your point. Even though, in my head, I hope that I’m writing about something that will go viral–at least capture a lot of people’s attention–it doesn’t mean that it will, no matter how much rewriting, editing and promotion I might do. It either clicks, or it doesn’t. Even so, I think the main point is that viral blogs aren’t spur of the moment. If they are really good, it’s because careful time and consideration were put into them.
