How to lose blog readers (once you actually get them)

from Chris Garrett, via Darren Rowse:

  1. Hardly post and when you do it is to apologise for not posting
  2. Re-post boingboing or some other popular blog, or copy and paste press releases
  3. Only ever write when in a bad mood, drunk or have nothing to say
  4. Constant unrelenting negativity
  5. Bang on about the same old gripe day after day
  6. Talk down to your audience like they are idiots
  7. Be incomprehensible
  8. Be elitist
  9. Be needy
  10. Constant irrelevance

I think I may be guilty of at least one of these… I’ll let you guess which.
