How to Blog Better

Do you blog? Do you wistfully imagine the celebrity status of being a blogger? Do you shudder with painful tics when you consider that your blogging might not be panachy* enough? Then you need help. And Merlin Mann is just the help you need. For Merlin’s answer to the querulous question of the current age, follow this link to nine measurements of a good blog.

Take great care to check your blog posts against the Mannly criteria. Apply his standards with relentless zeal. But please, have mercy on me; don’t judge this blog by his standards.

On second thought, I welcome your evaluation. How does this blog measure up, in light of Merlin’s standards, according to you?
