Wow Dharmesh, that's quite a crowd you have me mixed in with. I'm humbled.
Glad my blog has been helpful, but you deserve a lot of credit for producing a fine bit of work here. BTW, I'm one of those RSS subscribers you mentioned. :)
Another great blogger is Steve Pavlina. His blog contains some of the best articles out there on the web. Most of his writings are non IT-related.
Apparently, it helps to create a successful blog if you disallow users to unsubscribe. Dude, your unsubscribe doesn't work.
Great advice. I especially agree with avoiding comment on the stuff everyone else is commenting on. Nonetheless, I'd say 'read a lot more than you write' would be good advice too.
Hmm, Good post. But being software enterprenuer ( wannabe actually) I am wondeing are you really not inspired by Joel's writings ?
Good blog and Good going Dharmesh, Keep it up.
Dharmesh, I finally decided to comment on a post of yours! I really love this post because it's sort of a blogroll with reasoning. We all like to blogjump from one to the next but it's rare that we know the reasons why someone has linked to those blogs. Very nice, and i agree completely with your selection.
The "Joel on Software" blog is one of the most no-nonsense sources of great essays about nearly everything involved in creating and running a software company.
By the way, he mentions in one interview at IT Conversations (http://www.conversations.com) that Paul Graham is indeed a major inspiration for his writing style.
In fact, besides Joel's blog, Paul Graham's, Guy Kawasaki's and Onstartups.com are my favorite.
On a second tier of sorts, I'd also list Greg Linden's "Geeking with Greg" (http://glinden.blogspot.com/).
I too am a fan of Joel's writings and have been a reader of his for a long time.
If I were to have listed several more sites in the original article, Joel would have been on it.
Having said that, I think Joel's earlier writings were much more useful than some of the more current stuff that he's been posting to the blog. He also seems to go "dark" for long periods too.
Dharmesh, don't forget you've too several of your entries translated to spanish at http://www.simpleoption.com/ensayos.html :)
Currently there are 14 entries translated, and more will come soon (for example, this entry will be translated too).
And about Paul Graham... I think he does not consider himself a blogger. He publishes an essay when he thinks it's ready, and he has his personal touch. I'm ok with that way of working.
