    I’ve figured out blogging

    I’ve figured out blogging

    Write a two sentence post asking readers to “brief” me on whether Anthony Weiner has been “exposed,” with a video making a play on “weiner” and “boehner,” and I generate enthusiasm and comments.

    Write a multi-paragraph post about important issues of academic freedom and race politics in law school, and I generate nothing.

    And it only took me 2 1/2 years to figure it out.

    Now just repeat the same things over and over again and you're ready for the big leagues.

    The internet rewards repetition and banality. Think hard about whether it's a good use of your time.

    And guns, especially a gun with long a barrel, on a big full-tracked chassis …


    And it doesn't hurt to get linked at Instapundit and Althouse, either.

    I'm with Pasadena Phil. An off-the-cuff comment or funny remark is easy about the Weiner story which, except for the technical stuff about hacking Twitter, seems easy.

    But, you really have to know something to make an intelligent comment about a serious, focused issue like academic freedom.

    If it makes you feel any better, I value your posts for the serious issues and thinking not covered by others. Thanks!

    "nothing"? Hmph!

    I like both post styles but prefer your longer posts; people respond to pointed questions, though. So perhaps add one to your lengthier posts? Or some kind of direct invitation for feedback? I think that commenters tend to read longer posts as articles, not always requiring input or a response.
