I must admit until this weekend, I had no clue who Mena Trott was. I had no clue she founded TypePad, pioneered the practice of blogging and revolutionized how we interact online. It is my love for documentaries and my Netflix account that ultimately lead me to her 2006 TED Talk on the power of (personal) blogging.
Although Mena’s perspective on blogging is considered blithe by today’s standards I find it remarkably refreshing. Her talk has encouraged me to shun “bot blogging” and get personal.
