Hieronymus Bosch didn't have blogging in mind when he painted his oil panel of the Seven Deadly Sins.
I read a post on Lesley's Blog this morning that said Blog Envy is one of the seven deadly sins of blogging. That led me to wonder what the other 6 might be?
Lesley's post was about envying the size of readership of other people's blogs and poses the question - does it matter? I think it depends why you blog. If you blog as a marketing tool, then the more people from your target market who read the blog the better.
Some people keep their blogs totally private so no-one else can read them. I'm still not sure why I started blogging. I think I see myself as a seed sower, scattering seed broadside. If any of my blog seeds take root and grow somewhere - that's great. If they don't...oh dear..here creeps in blog envy! That led me to wonder what the other 6 blogospheric sins might be.
Alternatively I might blog about 7 blogging virtues one day. Any suggestions what these could be?
