Don’t just link – write something!

The most annoying kind of blog post I’ve ever seen is the link without commentary. I know you’ve seen them before. It’s just a link to something interesting and nothing else. The worst is the link to just another blog post from someone else.

I understand you’re excited. I understand you want to share your excitement, but could you at least say something? Why is it interesting to you? What’s your take on the post or story?

Please. Offer. Something.


  1. I agree very much. But sometimes it is okay to just have a YouTube movie/link in a blog post, but you should at least write what it is about.

  2. Guilty as charged. I do, however, agree with you. It seems kinda’ silly to just repost what someone else has said. On the other hand, sometimes I don’t have time to comment on it and forget to come back later.
