I was reading Sun’s blog policy, and I found an interesting paragraph that’s quite relevant to Gentoo’s rather more restrictive policy.
Another way to be interesting is to expose your personality; almost all of the successful bloggers write about themselves, about families or movies or books or games; or they post pictures. People like to know what kind of a person is writing what they’re reading. Once again, balance is called for; a blog is a public place and you should try to avoid embarrassing your readers or the company.
In other words, people as multi-dimensional objects are more interesting.
