Weekend Reading: Links a la Mode

links a la mode


The End of Summer? No! The Beginning of Awesome!


Edited by: Thom of The Sunday Best

For the past week I've been listening to Cee-Lo Green's fantastic send-off, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CAV0XrbEwNc&has_verified=1, and little else. At the same time I've been reading a lot of the hand-wringing in the press about bloggers and whatever are we going to do about them, along with our responses both here and on our blogs. And the two have combined in my head to form a single determination - bloggers need more swagger. I don't mean anger, of the you-don't-respect-us variety, or apologetics, of the we-are-as-legitimate-as-other-media variety. I mean swagger, the kind of swagger that comes from doing something well and knowing you're good at it. So whatever other themes might knit together this week's links, they all share that important characteristic - swagger. Step up to the plate, knock it out of the park.

love the swagger ... bloggers with the best swagger are the new editors of a generation for their niche communities. I can't wait to see where it goes for the good ones. I'm not sure that the landing spot for these voices has yet been created.
