Blogging and Karaoke

So, how is blogging like karaoke you ask?

Have you ever been to a karaoke party where everyone that gets up and sings is really excellent? I have, and it was a real drag. On the other hand, I’ve been to a karaoke party where a couple of really courageous people get up and belt one out — and really suck at it. That is the recipe for an awesome karaoke party. Why? Because then everyone in the room feels like they can get up and give it a try.

Blogging is similar. If all the blogs out there were amazingly well written and contained only amazing content, then most people would be afraid to even try it. The blog community is an amazing place full of dynamic thoughts. This works because some blogs suck.

So blogging is like karaoke because you need a few people that suck at it but are willing to give it a try with all their heart. This encourages everyone else to participate, cause well, anyone can do better than that right? And, the more you blog, the better you get at it.
