A wannabe splits from the pack

This would be hilarious were it not so sad: How do you write a good website content?

You have to hope that whatever his first language may be, it’s better than his English. I worry, though, that he’ll go Googling the phrase and end up being lectured on how to scrape content. And the answers he’d received as of last night were tremendously unhelpful: they deal with design, how it looks, rather than content, what it says.

    To a lot of people these days, style is the only substance. It’s why they go into outrage spirals over tweets, t-shirts, and generations-old idioms.

    I think there are at least 2 schools of thought:

    the Sam’l Johnson school: “Only a blockhead wrote other than for money”

    My school: “I write stuff I want to go back and re-read six months (or six years) later, even if no one else wants to.”

    (And yeah, according to old Sam’l, I’d be a blockhead. I don’t really care)

    “And yet you’ve done this for 22 years,” the psychiatrist pointed out.

    “I’m getting to the point where I don’t remember things as well. All the more reason to write them down.”
