The Ninth Commandment of Blogging

Thou Shalt Not Blog About Thy Life Unless The Story Or The Writing Are Interesting

How many people blog about their personal lives as if their weblog was their diary? It may help you to blow off steam if you commit all your woes and troubles to the screen, but don't bore (or embarrass!) others with it. Save it on your hard disk and leave it there.
This is not to say that blogging about your life is taboo, far from it. But only blog it if it's interesting, or if you can make it interesting (or, preferably, both).
