The One Things That Weren'tMarch 15, 2007
As many of you know, the final chapter of the book features advice from 16 very different bloggers. I've received a lot of positive feedback on that chapter, particularly because of the diverse and decidedly super-cool people who participated (see the full list). I think the other reason is that it shows the incredible variety of perspectives on blogging and gives people permission to experiment since there really isn't just one way to blog.
Putting together a chapter like that is fun because you get to seek out interesting people, somewhat like dreaming up my ideal dinner party. I was amazed at some of the people who agreed to participate, which proves that it's always worth asking. There were a few other people from outside the church world I asked, many of the stupendously unlikely category, and I thought it would be fun to share them...
- Jason Fried (37signals)
- Peggy Noonan
- Malcolm Gladwell
- Steve Rubel
- Hugh Mcleod
- David Frum
- Mark Cuban
- David Sifry (Technorati)
- Andrew Sullivan
- Hugh Hewitt
Again, I had no expectation that these would be possible (especially at about 22 degrees of separation), but I did receive some kind replies.
The real question is, who do you wish had been part of The One Thing? What blogger (Christian or otherwise) would you have loved to have heard from?
