That Yeats quote made me laugh my you know what off.

Nobody knows for sure which bloggers are brilliant, and which ones are mediocre no-talents, but one thing is very certain: there are too many of us.

I gotta use this in my blog. I could really rant away on that, but I'll stifle myself to be brief and pithy.

Seth Godin once said that as quantity of blogs increases, especially of schlock blogs of no real value, then the overall value of the blogosphere as a whole decreases.

I argued that this was true of talking, magazines, television, etc. so what's the point?

He wrote back, telling me that back years ago, most blogs were of high value. Now most are not. Thus, the deterioration of the realm as a whole.

He convinced me and I now see it more clearly.

But have you noticed how many bloggers are quiting? One guy said he gave blogging 6 months to produce results (I think he meant paying clients of his marketing consulting), and it hasn't been worth it. Too much time and effort with no results.

I sympathize, but I feel you need to spend about 3 to 5 years making your blog popular, valuable, and successful.

what do you think, Evelyn?

I don't have it on my blogs, there are a few things I wish I had, but I love it when a blog comment field has "notify me via email of responses to my comment".

Very very important feature.
