For the record, I'd rather read whatever lint Lindsay found taking up space in her brain that day than stale, bulleted meta-lists from bloggers who think they can tell others how to blog. Stories like Lindsay's make me more and more inclined to dismiss better-than-thou meta-bloggers, who are often the driest reads on the net.
Bloggers: Do whatever floats your boat. Think new, think big, bust out of these boring boxes the so-called experts want to force you into. The floating of boats is what eventually made blogging a high-profile hobby that brings about book deals and high traffic and personal success. Want to make a splash with your blog? Listen to people like this less. (And listen to me even less than that.)
