Updated from: David Parmet Says I Give Him “Ick Chills.”
David said he wasn't talking to me about this one; however, I love the phrase “ick chills'” so I have to keep it, and likely he IS talking about my post since it led one blogger to sandwich me between Steve Rubel and Devon Reams, telling us to, GET OVER YOURSELF.
I admit that I can be a little bit of a nerd about self-improvement exercises. However, it seems my 7 highly effective habits post seemed to touch a nerve, or most likely proved to be one more example, of what some bloggers don’t like – namely, being told what to do.
Frankly, I never like being told what to do either. Ask my mother.
It probably didn’t help that on the same day Steve Rubel posted his quick take on the 4 Ps of Blogging, and the day after my post Devon Reams came up with his Ease of Blogging tips.
I think we may have had formula overload.
Which led to experienced bloggers such as Jeremy Pepper in the Blog Run, Miss Rouge in Horse, Pig Cow, and Barry Bell in Blogging.werk.net to decry formulas in blogging.
So, for those of you that thought my 7 Habits post was hokey, as Jeremy once told me about something else I wrote, “take it with a box of salt.”
For those that got a thing or two out of it, I am glad. Besides, I am pretty sure that most of the people who read this blog take what is interesting to them and disreguard the rest anyway.
