Everything you write is provisional: the art of blogging

Andrew Sullivan and his blog, The Dish, have been a huge influence on me throughout my time as a blogger (closing in on ten years, unbelievably). Big Think have an extensive video interview (and transcript of it) with him, during which he muses on blogging, politics, homosexuality and religion. Well worth 40 minutes of you time. 

Here’s an extract from it:

The power of a single blog

Interesting graph from Andrew Sullivan as part of a post on journalism 2.0:

The Daily Dish Moves
The sudden divergence of traffic at the end marks the point Sullivan’s blog, The Dish moved from The Atlantic to The Daily Beast
But it’s worth noting that, according to Quantcast, the Beast’s traffic in terms of page views is now 39 million a month, compared with the Atlantic’s 15 million. The month before the Dish moved, it was 27 million pageviews for the Beast vs 21 million for the Atlantic. The gap in pageviews between the two sites has gone in one month from 6 million to 24 million. Since ads are sold on pageviews, that has got to mean something long-term. Quite what I don’t really know.

I’m sure you can come up with one or two suggestions…
