I first started blogging by linking to interesting things which I'd read. I usually just linked, and provided very little commentary of my own. There's nothing wrong with this sort of blogging, especially you have a gift for drawing together very eclectic sources (which I didn't) and you aren't too opinionated (and I realize that I am too opinionated). For a while I preserved this metablogging style on my Meta Mondays, when I mainly provided just links with minimal commentary.
For some strange reason I feel like doing one of these tonight.
Michelle Goldberg, Salon, In theology they trust
This makes me feel relieved to be an Australian, but even so, this is scary stuff.
If you're too lazy to get the Salon day pass, at least read this Washington Post article which the above one references. Will it take a judge to be killed via a US religious right fatwa for people to wake up to what's going on here?
On to something completely different, Ernie muses about the sometimes awkward and disconcerting phemonemon of meeting people who know so much about him because of his blogging, and he knows nothing about them. Talk about being at a disadvantage...
I'm still exhausted from my last job search, and don't even want to think about job interviewing for the time being, but Meredith has some very interesting advice for job interviewers. Some of this information would also be helpful to interviewees, to help understand the process.
