Where:

Do you think you have what it takes to be a successful blogger? Success being using your blog as a platform for your business, writing or just your major source of income.

I will lay out what I think are the 20 qualities of a good blogger.

After which, I will give participants a test to measure whether or not they have what it takes to be successful at blogging.

The schedule:

The Future of Blogging might be at CalHigh in San Ramon, CA

I am not a prophet nor the son of a prophet. (See Amos 7:14) But every now and then I get a glimpse into the future.

Today, maybe I saw a bit of the days to come at CalHigh in San Ramon, CA – San Ramon Valley Unified School District: California High.

I was invited to speak to a group of future entrepreneurs, headed up by Zahra Siddique. My assignment to let the young people know about how I do the blogging thing and how it pays my bills.

But if you ask me, I want to know how 14-year old Zahra was able to get 40 some people all in a room at the same time, quiet (while eating their lunches) and attentive?

Now THAT’s leadership. Well done, Zahra. Seriously, can you teach me how you did that?

I spent more time in the car driving to and from San Ramon from my home in Sunnyvale but the 20 minutes of jumping up and down (it’s how I talk – can’t help it) and the 10 minutes of Q & A that followed made the trip well worth it.
