Good advice for blogging

If a man were to ask me what I would suppose to be the perfect style of language I would answer, that in which a man speaking to five hundred people, of all common and various capacities, idiots or lunatics excepted, should be understood by them all, and in the same sense which the speaker intended to be understood.

– Daniel Defoe

  1. Good advice, most likely honored more in its breach. I do try to use the same voice when I blog as I would were I talking to a group of people. However, I think if Mr. Defoe had excluded fools, charlatans, and Republicans as well I would have a better chance of being successful!If I am to believe F.J. Miller, achieving a perfect style is near impossible. I=0 Information Has No Intrinsic Meaning
