There happens to be this trend today with some so-called “probloggers” who write about little more than blogging itself on their blogs. While every person has their own opinion of what a blog is, there has to be some kind of standard defenition for the term ‘blog’. Now in my humble opinion, if someone is going to start a blog, they should actually write about something other than blogging. Write about things in the niche that you would locate yourself under (or to use Web 2.0 terminology, tag yourself with).
Some blogs, like Weblog Tools Collection, actually do something useful by posting links to plugins, themes and the like. In particular, Lorelle on WordPress is like a WordPress manual in a blog format. Some other blogs, like BloggingPro (as well as others whose names I don’t remeber off hand), seem to write about just blogging, how to make money from blogging, and stuff that doesn’t really cover a wide range of interests (or to use general words, a niche). At least expand your ‘market’ by writitng about other things.
Even though I don’t really expect to rant about this again, it’s worth mentioning even once. Please probloggers, open up your minds to things other than blogging, like many people say to me, “Get a life!”
