As of late, a lot of blogs (won’t mention any) are starting to sound and look the same. Same ol’ topics, same lead capture technology, same look & feel, and same old ads.
There is a lot more noise in the blogging sphere and it is hard to find a reliable, sincere and original blog these days. For the most part I try to find and stick with the “originals” like ChrisBrogan.com. Others seem to be regurgitating or claim expertise.
If you are a professional blogger, dare to be different. Create a simple site and a simple message. Maybe something like Brian Gardner’s briangardner.com and unfiltered.me. He has the right idea.
Easy on the eyes, easy to comprehend and totally original. Even if you blog about the same topics, there is a way to add your own flavor and the simplicity needed.
There you have it. My plea for simplicity in the blogging world and in a crowded space both in population and design.
Dare to be different.
