Great Advice

My old friend David over at Treppenwitz gives some excellent advice about how to create a successful blog.

I might add that I have violated every one of his no-no's and yet look at how successful Psychotoddler has become!!

Ha!

whatever

There is a growing list of people who have lost their jobs because of blogging. You don't even have to blog at work to get fired... blogging about work, even in general terms, is sometimes enough.

Everything else I wrote is a matter of personal preference. But the work thing is really an iron-clad no-no!

Well not if the owner is a friend of yours and doesn't care as long as your making money for the company.

In fact, according to some sources (see thisisgoingtobebig.typepad.com for more info), you could use your blog for your career *advancement*!

You're a natural blogger P.T. Good topics, humor and kindness. I'm a fan for those reasons.

Breaking the rules is the way to go. Be the maverick, be a rogue, be a cowboy.

Ok, I am playing now, but take a look at my blog.

The blogging from work thing is such a huge topic that I'd like not to get mired down in it for this post.

Hasn't some rabbinical type already delved into that one?

Your blog is successful because it's well written, candid, funny and original. What other rules matter?

Well, not everyone can get by on sheer brute talent alone. For all the rest, I'd recommend following Trep's advice.

Psychotoddler: your blogolaciousness is undeniable.

You work for yoursef? Yay! Your post about your new chair made it sound like you were a cog in a huge group. If you don't mind telling me publicly, what kinda group you in? What's your specialty? What are you wearing right now?

I'm an internist doing primary care in private practice. I pay for all of my own expenses, including rent, staff, road runner, computers, networks, health insurance, employees health insurance, etc. etc. etc. I am part of a larger group, but I share an office with 1 1/2 other docs.

I also do some volunteer work at a local college and some other moonlighting here and there and it's usually these locations where I have the crappy furnature.

Cool. Another yay for you for doing volunteer work.

Road Runner is the cable internet provider. We use that to connect to our central server and for important medical research like what's the best way to describe your poo.
