How not to blog

Follow these three simple steps for instant failure at blogging, guaranteed to win you links of people denouncing your “opportunism”, “bad taste” and for being “totally inappropriate”.

  1. Take something with guaranteed media attention, like a premature death of a celebrity
  1. Ludicrously shoe-horn it into your dull as ditchwater blog about small business
  1. Write an opportunistic headline (don’t forget that celebrity name now)

Voila! Link bait:

A very bad blog

This blog sucks

Alternatively, genuinely have something to say and say it in an interesting way that is easy to understand.
