brevity competes with brevity, yay

ProBlogger is sponsoring a contest (the booty: a 2G flash drive) where all contestants submit a 140 character tip on blogging.  (Respond to comments; study the blogosphere; use pix in posts; et al)  The contest runs through January 14, entries can be viewed here.  The tips are pretty good, I have to say.

I love seeing the exercise in brevity, something that Cicero would’ve really got behind.  He once apologized for the length of a correspondence, saying ‘if I had had more time, I would’ve written a shorter letter.’  Seeing the web go more in the Cicero/Basho direction is my pleasure.
