Write your blog posts like good rock songs

Saturday, November 17th, 2012

I am currently at MozCamp Asia in Singapore and just gave a quick presentation on blogging comparing a good technical blog post to rock songs. When you think about it, they have a lot in common:

write blogs like rock songs

  • No intro – just straight to the point
  • Memorable hooks and riffs
  • One message per post
  • Simple language
  • An easily repeatable main message (something to scream along to no matter how drunk)
  • A memorable solo to end with

Confused? I guess it will all get clearer when you see the slides and listen to the screencast.

How to be a kick-ass speaker – MozCamp 2011

Sunday, November 13th, 2011

I am currently at MozCamp in Berlin and my job was to entice all the contributors to the Mozilla project to get out of their shell and start speaking at events about all the great stuff they do. It seems people liked what I had to say, so here are the slides and the audio recording. I will cover this topic more in the next few months, as I think the way we do information sharing in the web development world right now is not really scalable.

The slides are on Slideshare (this time)
