The truth is that the world is full of dragons, and none of us are as powerful or cool as we’d like to be. And that sucks. But when you’re confronted with that fact, you can either crawl into a hole and quit, or you can get out there, take off your shoes, and Bilbo it up.
I checked out your blog. Oh. Dear. Baby. Jesus. How did he find it? Wait. More importantly was the fact he HAD found it. Was my blog now googleable? That was awesomesauce with an extra heaping of sauce.

Don’t focus on having a great blog. Focus on producing a blog that’s great for your readers.
As a blogger, everything you do flows from understanding your audience and seeking to help them.
Blogging is just writing – writing using a particularly efficient type of publishing technology.
Blogging is to writing what extreme sports are to athletics: more free-form, more accident-prone, less formal, more alive. It is, in many ways, writing out loud.
For most of human history, all published writing had been carefully inspected, edited, and approved. In the last decade, blogging has turned the publishing world on its head. A blog allows you to write and publish anything, from anywhere, and have it be immediately available to billions of people all around the world. This means that blogging is uniquely “alive”.
In this section we are going to quote and link some of the most prolific, popular and active blogstars, that is to say all those people that run a widely praised weblog, and offer in their web space a series of opportunities where you can write, express and display thoughts, comments, ideas, and concerns for a multitude of topics.
But the main feature of our websites blogstars is that here you will be able to find the best and the most polemic and critical way of looking at power, authority and reality at large.
In other words we are replicating and developing our first idea relating to the creation of the Daimon Club Genial Bloggers, as a matter of fact an aggregator blog of genial and creative thoughts and different writings about all the different way to attack the universal stupidity and its servants.
What’s more don’t absolutely think that blogs and bloggers are dead; first of all they are writers and authors and therefore you should know what T.S. Eliot used to say about artists and dead people: “What the dead had no speech for, when living, They can tell you, being dead: the communication Of the dead is tongued with fire beyond the language of the living.” and also “No poet, no artist of any art, has his complete meaning alone. His significance, his appreciation is the appreciation of his relation to the dead poets and artists. You cannot value him alone; you must set him, for contrast and comparison, among the dead.
To understand our strategy, we must remember that bloggers live by mutual exchanges, discussions, references from page to page, continuous interactions, reciprocal references, links, personal attacks and reconciliations and so we hope that those who contact our blogs will accept our good intentions and will be ready to cooperate in any way. Presumably this initiative will give some satisfaction and some visibility to all those who want to join us, without ever forgetting the famous quote by Carl William Brown that says: “The universe does not even know that we exist, so we should relax”.
Whatever you do the Daimon Club for sure can do something for you too, of course, and together we can do so much more! Join us!
