Whenever I have to make a decision for something I’m going to do with one of the blogs, I check with a handful of people. Like five different friends—or four, more like four—who may or may not regularly read the blog in question, but whose opinion I trust and value. I’ve always done it; I like sounding boards, even if it’s only ends up confirming my initial idea or if I end up scuttling the idea altogether. Discussing it helps. The vacuum stuff is the tag clouds or similar things. Anything I consider of actual importance, I fret over, consult others. Sometimes they even get credit.
