Thoughts on the anti-blog movement of authors using email services like MailChimp? Direct to the inbox as they like to say –@Unpacktherat
TV didn’t replace movies. Movies didn’t replace radio. Radio didn’t replace reading. Photography didn’t replace painting.
People chose the medium they want to create in. The key is to have something to say. Then figure out the medium you want to use to say it. I like blogging because, for me, it seems like hard work to build out an email list when I don’t feel I need to. Anyone can just come to my blog and read what I have to say plus I can have other links on there to other posts that I think are relevant. I like my posts to be “3 dimensional” and link all around.
But some people like email lists. It’s more direct. I would say the style is a bit different. So it just depends what medium you want to be a creator in, an artist in.
The key, again, is to have something to say. Then create.
