There’s been a lot of fear about blogs this past decade. Even the word “blog” is scary, like some gelatinous swamp thing oozing over our precious discourse, upending the neat order of things and leaving behind a trail of slime. These monsters were multiplying by the thousands, threatening to consume national media, bring Congress to its knees and subvert the interests of decent, regular people.
Bloggers are scary. I can't help but laugh.
After writing Lead Quietly for over two years and learning so much and really appreciating the opportunity to connect with others on the blogosphere, the only scary part for me is that I continue to discover there is too much to learn and explore. I'm afraid that I won't live long enough to get to it all.
I hope that I haven't scared you with subversive information.
Check out the Newsweek series. Another favorite part, the celebrity mug shots.
Thanks for reading. Please lead quietly.
