What blogs were like before it became “professional”

Adam Kuban, who was behind the original New York pizza blog Slice, in an interview by Ben Leventhal:

I miss the early days when you could just get up a post about whatever and just kind of express yourself without really thinking about page views, thinking about SEO, thinking about how it will play on Twitter, if it’s shareable on Facebook … I do miss the sense that you were making it up as you went along.

That is why my challenge to a few people was about “personal” blogging. Not just writing or blogging in general. But about keeping it personal. Quick, only-slightly-edited thoughts published daily.
