Barnes & Noble put out a press release today with details on how they did for the past 3 months. It’s worth a read (if you have the soul of an accountant*). But I’m not covering it here. I have a reason for this, and it might interest you.
Let me give you an inside look at blogging.
Everyone is writing about it, so the attention I might draw is minimal. I think it’s better to devote my energies elsewhere. Also if I did write on this it would sound much like the rest of the blogs writing about it, and that would break the first rule of having a blog, which is to write original, unique content.
BTW, original and unique are not the same thing. While they are sometimes used as synonyms, there subtle differences. For example, when you make 1500 copies of a work, it might be original but no single copy is unique (they’re all the same).
Yes, I do sometimes post stuff from elsewhere. And yes, that does break my own rule, but that’s okay. I’ve never liked rules. But the difference between the reposted and the story above is that the reposts re good work; the story above would be the same as what everyone else wrote.
