It’s better than bad it’s BLOG

Freewheeling bloggers can boost your product—or destroy it. Either way, they’ve become a force business can’t afford to ignore.

A few notes for FORTUNE:

  1. When you mention a blog, link it for crying out loud
  2. NewsGator gets a mention in the paragraph about RSS (no mention of ATOM), not BlogLines (the most popular feed reader).
  3. Ummm… links again. Mena’s pricing post? How about links to blogging tools? How about a mention of WordPress… the software most people switched to when MT 3.0 came out?

I realize that it’s a print article on a web site, but seriously folks, it’s just ironic that an article about the power of the interconnected blogosphere has zero links to the blogosphere.

    Sooooo, where’s the handbook on blogging ettiquete/style? Like how do I know when I need to link a person’s name? Only once in an entry, every time? And what if they have more than one link? Which one do I use? And what if I link them in one of my posts and mention them again in the next one? Pretty soon some of my entries could be all blue! Sounds like its time for someone to write an MLA/APA/Chicago Manual of Style for the internet (should internet be capitalized?) Maybe John can do it…

    Your photos for the day would look great in this 5-slot frame I saw at IKEA yesterday…
