I just picked up a book Blogging Heroes: Interviews with 30 of the World’s Top Bloggers. So far, so good. It shares a lot of ideas and advice from bloggers of varying styles and points of view. I haven’t gotten far into it yet. So, instead of summarizing what I’ve read, I’m posting part of what is printed on the back of the book, quotations from some highly successful bloggers.

“One of the true beauties and powers of blogs is that they can give voice to people who are not heard.”
– Frank Warren, PostSecret, postsecret.blogspot.com

“Don’t write anything in a blog that you wouldn’t say to someone face to face.”
– Scott McNulty, The Unofficial Apple Weblog, www.tuaw.com

“For me, the future of journalism is blogging.”
– Mary Jo Foley, All About Microsoft, blogs.zdnet.com/microsoft

“I do my best thinking via my blogs.”
– Chris Anderson, The Long Tail, www.thelongtail.com

“When I look out at the blogosphere, I don’t see lots of inconsequential blogs. I see lots of possibility.”
– Gina Trapani, Lifehacker, www.lifehacker.com

Sound advice and noteworthy ideas. If I disappear for a day or two longer than usual, it’s likely because I’ll be steadily reading this book (and a few others).

I still plan on updating the episode summaries for Noein in the near future. Though, they may be more condensed than previous posts. I finally made it to episode 8. Then, I got sidetracked by a great anime “Aoi Hana”, which has a short but wonderful story. There are also other shows and movies I’d like to watch. There is such an incredible amount of anime-related content to write about, so I’m giving priority to the titles I find the most touching, inspirational, or visually impressive.

Ja ne! ^_^/~
