The Fourth Commandment of Blogging

Thou Shalt Be Original

Avoid "Me, Too"-postings, in which you only state your opinion about some well-known issue (say, Nipplegate). Try to find an unfamiliar perspective to a familiar subject or, better still, an unfamiliar subject. By all means, avoid just saying that X either rules or sucks, especially if X is a movie, celebrity, politician, political hot potato, or your life.
Alternatively, be imaginative. Write a story, and be sure to make it up. Make a poem or comic. Take a picture. Only post stuff if you think it is good. "Develop a built-in bullshit detector." Ernest Hemingway.
