Over 50 Quotes on Blogs and Blogging

Blogging is a great way to show your talents and interests to prospective employers, while adding an edge to your resume. If you blog consistently it shows your dedication, passions and creativity - all of which are key attributes employers look for in job candidates. - Lauren Conrad

Don’t worry about what your blog is going to be about or reading up on how to start a blog. Just do it. Your blog will change a million times but the only way to figure out what your blog will be is to write your way into it. Dive in. It’s the best way. - Zoey Martin

I think talking is as casual as blogging, and sometimes writing can be as casual as talking. My informal writing style is a political choice, because I want feminism to be more accessible. - Jessica Valenti

My blogging life is basically goalless. I like the Zen nature of that, and paradoxically, it improves results. - Seth Godin

The first thing you learn when you're blogging is that people are one click away from leaving you. So you've got to get to the point, you can't waste people's time, you've got to give them some value for their limited attention span. - Alex Tabarrok

Blogging and the Internet allow us to engage in a lot more real time conversations as opposed to a one-way dump of information or a message. - Indra Nooyi

It's been so amazing. I've always struggled with this barrier that I felt like I'd had up until blogging came along. Just one comment from somebody really sparks something in me. It doesn't need to be this huge war between me and the listeners anymore. I really thrive on that. - Imogen Heap

I think of us as journalists; the medium we work in is blogging. - Joshua Micah Marshall

Have a plan, pick a niche, and choose something that you can talk about with confidence for YEARS. Don’t expect it to be an overnight success – slow and steady wins the race in this case – but you do need to work to get your blog out there in front of people. - Jess Van Den

I was having problems with depression and anxiety disorder, and it felt like not blogging about it was creating a false history. When I did finally share the problems I was having, I was shocked - not only by the support that was given to me, but also by the incredible amount of people who admitted they struggled with the same thing. - Jenny Lawson

If somebody crafts an interesting tweet that'll lead me to their blog, I'm going to their blog. - Anthony Bourdain

One of my goals when I started blogging was to try and connect with like minded people. I’ve been overwhelmed by how many amazing people I’ve met and become great friends with. No woman is an island! That and being able to work around the hours my young family keeps so that I can follow my dreams and still watch them achieve theirs! - Candice DeVille

Put your blog out into the world and hope that your talent will speak for itself. - Diablo Cody

The fact that now after a few years of blogging being a relatively disdained and shadowy kind of ‘time-waster’ by people who weren’t sure what it was, now more people realise one can make a name – and money – doing exactly the kind of writing work they do offline. My accountant, for one, is starting to see the light. - Karen Andrews

I love jotting down ideas for my blog, so I doodle or take notes on all kinds of stuff that inspires me: the people I meet, boutiques I visit, a florist that just gave me a great idea for an interior-design project, things like that. - Maria Sharapova

Political reporters no longer get to decide what's news. The days when a minister gave briefings to a dozen lobby correspondents, and thereby dictated the next day's headlines, are over. Now, a thousand bloggers decide for themselves what is interesting. If enough of them are tickled then, bingo, you're news. - Daniel Hannan

Be honest but not too bitchy, it can open up a negative can of worms in your comments section – after all what goes around comes around. And fashion blogging are some of the friendliest people in it – it’s like having a little community all over the world to share experiences with. - Helen Lee

The least-crowded channel for meeting high profile bloggers is in person. Email is the most difficult, the most crowded... I'm a top 1,000 blogger, not a top 100 blogger, and I get hundreds of pitches by email every week. Most of them I don't even see because my assistant declines them. - Timothy Ferriss

Make your content marketing work for your business

Twitter is so short, it's safe. I don't want my bosses to be like, 'Hey, your script is due and we saw you wrote four blog pages.' - Mindy Kaling

I'm always amazed by people who blog all the time and tweet all the time, and still get things done. I don't know how they do it. - Jarvis Cocker

I generally blog between 5:30 A.M. and 7 A.M. I will from time to time add something during the day, but for the most part blogging is an early morning activity for me. - Fred Wilson

I tend to approach giving interviews with the same sense of circumspection and restraint as I approach my writing. That is to say, virtually none. When asked what I made of blogs like my own, blogs written by parents about their children, I said, 'A blog like this is narcissism in its most obscene flowering.' - Ayelet Waldman

Support the blogger community and leave comments on posts, maybe an occasional email to introduce yourself. Make sure you have an About Me section with contact details so people can get in touch with you. Personalise your blog layout to make it different from other blogs out there and try to not pick a website name that is similar to others. Don’t worry about a blogging schedule but try and keep posts regular-it is better if you post twice a week than to post 10 posts in 1 day and not write new material for the rest of the month. - Susan Thye

One reason I encourage people to blog is that the act of doing it stretches your available vocabulary and hones a new voice. - Seth Godin

Blog culture has a hard time digesting narratives, but it has an easy time digesting 'big ideas' pieces. - Hanna Rosin

It's not easy for an entrepreneur to find the time to blog. But for those who do it, it is a great tool to communicate with the various stakeholders in their business and build a reputation for thought leadership. - Fred Wilson

People don’t want to read objective and impersonal blogs. I really didn’t know what kind of “voice” to use when I started out, because I didn’t want to come across as too familiar but in some entries I came across too robot-like! Once I started really being me, lurkers came out to wish me well – they actually wanted to engage with me. It only took me… two years to realise! - Natalie Perkins

The business of funding digging journalists is important to encourage. It cannot be replaced by bloggers who don't have access to politicians, who don't have easy access to official documents, who aren't able to buttonhole people in power. - Andrew Marr

It made me sad when I caught myself pretending that everybody out there in cyberspace cared about what I thought, when really nobody gives a shit. And when I multiplied that sad feeling by all the millions of people in their lonely little rooms, furiously writing and posting to their lonely little pages that nobody has time to read because they’re all so busy writing and posting, it kind of broke my heart. - Ruth Ozeki

What's great is that starting a blog can get you lot of attention for your writing. But it doesn't have to be for anybody other than yourself. - Dianna Agron

One danger, when you're writing lots of quick, opinionated blog items about the latest developments, is that you never get around to stating fully, in one place, what you think about a particular topic. - Mickey Kaus

Blog regularly about something which you are passionate about. Read and comment on lots of blogs in your niche. Offer to write guest posts for other mid level blogs in your niche and provide them with great material. And for yourself, keep it interesting and fun by regularly trying new things. - Christie Burnett

My blog is a collection of answers people don’t want to hear to questions they didn’t ask. - Sebastyne Young

Keeping a 'CEO blog' or 'founder's blog' can be a great platform for engaging your users in a nontraditional way, reaching people outside of your product pitch and building rapport without selling them anything except a belief in your ideas. - Kathryn Minshew

The reason I was successful in launching my first book with bloggers is this: I assumed that I should spend as much time on a blogger with a million-person readership as I would pitching an editor of a publication with a million person subscription-base. - Timothy Ferriss

She logged in and read a few of her old posts, smiling at the issues she had raged about and shaking her head at how some of the rants now seemed pretentious and judgmental. She had grown so much without even realizing she had. Mythili typed out the draft, spicing it up subtly and after a last read, she published it. Admiring the brand new post on her main page, she realized she missed writing. She had barely written anything since her last by-line. Typing this out, she felt like she was back with a long-lost friend who understood her. It was like snuggling up in a warm blanket when a thunderstorm raged outside. - Shweta Ganesh Kumar

Twenty-five percent of search results for the world's top 20 largest brands are links to user generated content and thirty-four percent of bloggers post opinions about products and brands. - Erik Qualman

That there’s no right way to blog. When I started my blog would only ever fit in the personal blog category. Which was a bit of hodge-bodge of bloggers that didn’t fit anywhere else. Now we get called lifestyle bloggers. And all I can think is thank goodness I didn’t try and be a food blogger, you know? Try and be something I wasn’t. I probably would’ve quit by now. Bored to death of posting the same thing day after day about something just to fit a niche. - Melissa Horne

Copywriters, journalists, mainstream authors, ghostwriters, bloggers and advertising creatives have as much right to think of themselves as good writers as academics, poets, or literary novelists. - Sara Sheridan

Bloggers create kind of a popularity. But they are not the experts, and we have to understand that. - Martha Stewart

Just because you have a blog doesn't mean that you should, like, lie for no reason. - Sky Ferreira

I don't watch any television, hardly ever because I'm so busy. I always obviously watch my shows because I blog about it and talk about it, but no, I can watch the news in the morning and that's it. - Lisa Vanderpump

It's interesting with my blog, because it feels to me less like a blog and more like a forum, because my readers are so funny and leave hysterical comments. And I'm not being humble when I say that very often, the comments are so much better than the post originally was. - Jenny Lawson

I don't have time to write a mom blog, but I'm not against it. I think it's great when women talk about things. I'm all about female empowerment. There's a lot of lonely, lost moms out there. Moms need to be encouraged to tell the truth. There's a lot of glamour mommy stuff. It's OK to get real. - Kelly Cutrone

Never blog just to put something out there. I would post only things that excite me. - Hanneli Mustaparta

I'm reading a book, because I'm brainy. No, it is a book - if you don't know, it is like a blog except bigger. - Craig Ferguson

The support I get from my readers who have become my friends. I bare my soul on my blog and my readers offer me spiritual bandaids. They listen to me, send me chocolate and comfort me. My internetz hold my hand when I am feeling wobbly and they occasionally make me wet myself with laughter as well. - Kim Foale

A blog is neither a diary nor a journal. Many people think of blogging in relation to those two things, confessional or practical. It is neither but includes elements of both. - Lemn Sissay

These days, you have the option of staying home, blogging in your underwear, and not having your words mangled. I think I like the direction things are headed. - Marc Andreessen

Blogging is good for your career. A well-executed blog sets you apart as an expert in your field. - Penelope Trunk

The Internet has no eraser. - Liz Strauss

Blogs democratise the media. - Catriona Pollard

You can work quite hard, in particular online, and do quite well independently, but if you really want to grow you need points of leverage and most of them come from knowing people. - Yaro Starak

Twittering and blogging and all that is fine, but there is no idea of how to phrase something beautifully; how to use language to create an emotion. It's just passing information and sometimes very superficial information. - Isabel Allende

There's something really terrible about having your BlackBerry next to your bed or having your laptop in the living room when you're talking to someone. The biggest source of stress in my life is the screen, the blogging. - Jessica Valenti
