Nobody wants 11 lessons, boil it down to five Marc
- Eleven lessons learned about blogging, so far
And blog's without comments are so lame. Trackbacks aren't comments. They street sign put up long after the road has been built. If you splat your words to the world at least be polite enough to listen back.

The first two aren't lessons.
It's Marc Andreesen, BTW.
Not being keen on reading many blogs, I'm not convinced. For example, the blogs I do read (aviation and JoS) don't follow the usual models of comments. JoS has a discussion system with a life of its own. The aviation blogs I read get a few comments, there's a small community of people who read them and comment. But these bloggers aren't going for a discussion w/ their audience, not looking for many insights, they get those in their real-world interactions.

Ward-- you fly? What kinds of things?
I've been out of it for a while, but have a long term goal of getting back into it with something fun to poke around in. Something simple and fun like a Super Cub or Husky. I'd love to have the confidence and commitment for a very light jet, but am afraid I'd kill myself with some brain fart, like Cory Lidle in his Cirrus.

> The first time I met Dave Sifry, over three years ago, he told me that conversations on the Internet would eventually all revolve around every individual having a blog, each individual posting her own thoughts on her own blog, and blogs cross-linking through mechanisms like trackbacks and blog search engines (such as Dave's Technorati).
I still dont get how that works. Comments are tedious to read, the blogger plays feudal lord over their blog, and trackbacks are usually just a quotation and a "high five" of the original. where's the beef?
