@Valeria Good point about the filter and personality. I agree. There aren't many reasons for people to read blogs that have no discernible voice, don't take a stand, etc. You make an interesting point about resisting the urge to essentially re-purpose the content of others. I don't know that I have an opinion one way or the other on the topic, but I can well imagine that a beginning blogger could get the wrong idea when they are given what is more or less a good piece of advice "Comment on what other people in your industry are saying and doing." At some point when pressed for time, they are likely to start just talking more about everyone else's ideas than about their own.

@Brandon - it really depends on your objective. And you might find ways to provide value to the community, and sustain your blogging at the same time. Money is not evil, it's love of money that tends to create issues.

@Susan - glad the content is useful. I'm thinking it might be worth focusing on leadership a bit more in future posts, esp addressing concerns and issues women often think about. Good suggestion, thank you.

I always get such tremendous value from your posts so I am personally really glad you choose to share your thoughts and ideas with us in this way.

Thank you for providing the path to driving action with social media without the chest thumping - a message many of my women friends and clients in particular can benefit from not just when it comes to social media but when it comes to their leadership and managing their careers.
