The least-crowded channel for meeting high profile bloggers is in person. Email is the most difficult, the most crowded… I'm a top 1,000 blogger, not a top 100 blogger, and I get hundreds of pitches by email every week. Most of them I don't even see because my assistant declines them. -Tim Ferriss

The reason I was successful in launching my first book with bloggers is this: I assumed that I should spend as much time on a blogger with a million-person readership as I would pitching an editor of a publication with a million person subscription-base. -Tim Ferriss

I was having problems with depression and anxiety disorder, and it felt like not blogging about it was creating a false history.

I write the occasional entry for the 'Times' Theatre blog, especially when I'm in London and seeing two shows a day, but I don't tweet. I don't want to have to express my opinion in 140 characters. That's like writing haiku. You need a certain amount of legroom to review a play properly. -Ben Brantley

I don't watch any television, hardly ever because I'm so busy. I always obviously watch my shows because I blog about it and talk about it, but no, I can watch the news in the morning and that's it. -Lisa Vanderpump

I used to read the criticism on blogs about other people – mostly female actresses and singers – and even when they are extremely perfect and harmless, people still go after them.

That's the worst way you can hear about comedy material: from a third person's blog story that they wrote when they were upset. -Anthony Jeselnik

In terms of being a 'sneakerhead,' there was one point where I was obsessively following every sneaker blog. That's the beauty of Twitter: To get the heads up on what's coming out. -Questlove

It's long been my dream to have myself declared incompetent so I could just practice all day, and blog, and not have to take care of any normal life things. -Jeremy Denk

It's been so amazing. I've always struggled with this barrier that I felt like I'd had up until blogging came along. Just one comment from somebody really sparks something in me. It doesn't need to be this huge war between me and the listeners anymore. I really thrive on that. -Imogen Heap

The assumption should be that we will not appear in print or the blogosphere. Having dinner should not be fodder for Facebook. And this is just as true for 'public personalities' as it is for the average person. After all, even people in the public eye have a right to a private life. -Ezekiel Emanuel

I have a day job Monday to Friday. I work at a record label in Brooklyn called Ba Da Bing. It's a great indie label and I listen to music all day. I meet people online and find out about the cool new music blogs. -Sharon Van Etten

The original idea of blog publishing was that writer and reader would be on the same level. That it would be a conversation – not a lecture. People lost sight of that. We didn't.

As a print journalist, if you hear a rumour you try to stand it up and if you can't, the story dies. With a blog you can throw the rumour out there and ask for help. You can say: 'We don't know if this is true or not.' -Nick Denton

While I love the medium, I've always been skeptical about the value of blogs as businesses. -Nick Denton

The relationship between WordPress and Tumblr has always been pretty friendly: Tumblr's own blog used to be on WP, WordPress.com supports Tumblr as a Publicize option alongside Twitter and Facebook, our Akismet team sends them daily emails of splogs on the service, and there's healthy import and export traffic both ways. -Matt Mullenweg

For me, it always comes back to the blogger, the author, the designer, the developer. You build software for that core individual person, and then smart organisations adopt it and dumb organisations die. -Matt Mullenweg

Much of the lifeblood of blogs is search engines – more than half the traffic for most blogs. -Matt Mullenweg

Keeping a 'CEO blog' or 'founder's blog' can be a great platform for engaging your users in a nontraditional way, reaching people outside of your product pitch and building rapport without selling them anything except a belief in your ideas. -Kathryn Minshew

One reason I encourage people to blog is that the act of doing it stretches your available vocabulary and hones a new voice. -Seth Godin

My blogging life is basically goalless. I like the zen nature of that, and paradoxically, it improves results. -Seth Godin

The business of funding digging journalists is important to encourage. It cannot be replaced by bloggers who don't have access to politicians, who don't have easy access to official documents, who aren't able to buttonhole people in power. -Andrew Marr

Humanity is a failed experiment, but I think I'm God and I'd like to start over. I don't want to die, I just want everyone else to. I certainly would not be lonely. It would be exciting never having to listen to another person again but just my own self droning on and on. That's why I write a blog. And I read it, too. -Roseanne Barr

I don't Twitter or blog. I'm bad at small talk, and don't have good 'chat'. Talk to me about publishing, and I can go on for hours. -Andrew Wylie

The rock star is dying. And it's a small tragedy. Rock stars have blogs now. I have no use for that kind of rock star. -Nick Cave

Actually, I never liked the idea of bags. I would say, 'Why do so many of my friends spend so much money on these bloody bags?' But once I started designing them, I was completely hooked. There are all of these blogs about bags. It's a whole other industry, and I'm really excited to be a part of it. -Nicola Formichetti

When I found out I was pregnant, the first thing that had to go was the acne medicine and chemical-filled face washes and lotions. I made sure everything was natural and organic, and I started reading blogs by other pregnant women. -Marisa Miller

The first thing you learn when you're blogging is that people are one click away from leaving you. So you've got to get to the point, you can't waste people's time, you've got to give them some value for their limited attention span. -Alex Tabarrok

Writing on the blog, you want to get attention and make strong claims. In academic work, that often doesn't pay, so sometimes it's a little bit difficult going back and forth to navigate these differences. -Alex Tabarrok

It's traumatic to meditate on the availability of information through the Internet, or the way we perceive the world as a result. People don't experience things totally or viscerally anymore. It's all through representation, be it a record on YouTube or a post on a blog. -Sufjan Stevens

I enjoy reading blogs, but am not interested in having my spurious thoughts out there. -Brian Greene

More academics should blog, post videos, post audio, post lectures, offer articles and more. You'll enjoy it: I've had threats and blackmail, abuse, smears and formal complaints with forged documentation. -Ben Goldacre

If somebody crafts an interesting tweet that'll lead me to their blog, I'm going to their blog. -Anthony Bourdain

Fashion intersects a lot with art and film and music, and that was appealing to me. I read a bunch of fashion blogs and wanted to be part of the community. -Tavi Gevinson

I used to go on all these blogs and all these websites which I really don't like to go and read about at all, and I couldn't care less anymore. -Coco Austin

Reading the text of my blog itself is not really the interesting part. The exciting part is how the Internet allows me to be the eyes and ears for the people sending me postings from Africa. -Ethan Zuckerman

I had a blog for many years. Once you develop your readership on your blog, and you can put something out there or direct traffic or get attention – it's like a super power. -Evan Williams

My strong belief – in being in blogging before Twitter – is that in trying to create more information out there, in trying to create the democratization of media in general, is that the more voices there are out there then the likelihood is that the truth bubbles up to the top. -Evan Williams

Every major communication tool on the Internet has spam and abuse problems. All email services, blogging services and social networks have to dedicate a significant amount of resources and time to fighting abuse and protecting their users. -Evan Williams

'Vanity pages,' is somewhat of a derogatory term; personal pages are still the heart of blogging, but now there are more topic-oriented blogs. It's really about personal expression, and that's just gotten bigger and broader. -Evan Williams

A key element of Web blogs is the community element. Most blogs are not self-contained; they are highly dependent on linking to each other. -Evan Williams

I subscribe to about 200 blogs. I look for insights and good writing, and I look to get smarter. -Evan Williams

I used to work for an NGO called Transitions Online, and I was their Director of New Media. I was a very idealistic fellow who thought that he could use blogs, social networks and new media to help promote democracy, human rights and freedom of expression. -Evgeny Morozov

Since the advent of the Internet – more recently compounded by blogging – everyone can be a published voice. Any cowardly, anonymous anger-monger can have an audience of thousands. That doesn't make them a journalist any more than my throwing an onion and a few carrots into a pot of boiling water makes me Julia Child. -Lynda Resnick

I get daily mentions in blogs, I get mentions in Twitter and in different social media… I know that gets books sold. -Joachim de Posada

I've been writing since I was very young, even before I was a teenager. As far as I'm concerned, I am a writer – whether my writing's spoken or written in a blog, paper, book or printed on the side of a submarine. -Dylan Moran

As a source of innovation, an engine of our economy, and a forum for our political discourse, the Internet can only work if it's a truly level playing field. Small businesses should have the same ability to reach customers as powerful corporations. A blogger should have the same ability to find an audience as a media conglomerate. -Al Franken

Science blogs bore me. When everyone is an expert, no one is an expert. -Leonard Susskind

I have spent most of my adult life proving that I existed. A blog is an accessible way of doing this – there is a date and place in cyberspace that I existed a year ago, to the day, and the proof is still there. -Lemn Sissay

A blog is neither a diary nor a journal. Many people think of blogging in relation to those two things, confessional or practical. It is neither but includes elements of both. -Lemn Sissay

When I grew up there was no web, blogging or tweeting. In fact, where I grew up there was not even television! I met a lot of my friends in school and in college, and they are still my friends today. -Indra Nooyi

There will never be a replacement for that ongoing physical contact. But I don't think blogging is meant to replace the face-to-face of friendships and meetings. Blogging is a way to keep in touch with a larger group of people on an ongoing basis, in a more efficient way. -Indra Nooyi

I try to stay away from all the blogs and messages boards. -Joanne Kelly

I don't have time to write a mom blog, but I'm not against it. I think it's great when women talk about things. I'm all about female empowerment. There's a lot of lonely, lost moms out there. Moms need to be encouraged to tell the truth. There's a lot of glamour mommy stuff. It's OK to get real. -Kelly Cutrone

I had a personal blog, but why does anyone care that I went shopping for hats? -Chris Hardwick

In this age of omniconnectedness, words like 'network,' 'community' and even 'friends' no longer mean what they used to. Networks don't exist on LinkedIn. A community is not something that happens on a blog or on Twitter. And a friend is more than someone whose online status you check. -Simon Sinek

I started my blog in 2002. That was pre-MySpace, pre-Facebook. That was back before newspapers realized they were going out of business. That was back when no one gave any credence to Internet writers. -Tucker Max

I'm not against technology, but all tools should be used to their best advantage. We should be spending our time on things that have staying power, instead of on the latest thought of the latest blogger – and then moving on quickly to the next blogger. -J. I. Packer

I've been blogging since February of 2001. When I started blogging, it was a dinosaur blog. It was me and a handful of tyrannosaurs. We'd be writing blog entries like, 'The tyrannosaurus is getting grumpy.' -Neil Gaiman

I'm never, I hope, stupid enough to believe that Twitter or blogging or any of this stuff is a substitute for actually doing the work or writing a book. -Neil Gaiman

I started blogging a decade ago because I like blogging. Writing's a kind of lonely thing to do, and I liked the idea of demystifying the process because I loved it as a kid and teenager and as somebody who wanted desperately to write. -Neil Gaiman

My fans don't feel like I hold anything back from them. They know whatever I'm going through now, they'll hear about it on a record someday. They'll hear the real story. There's a little bit of lag time. It's not as instant as going on a gossip blog. But it's much more accurate. -Taylor Swift

I think something will soon have to be done to protect people from hacking and blogging and lying and spreading rumors and chasing you down the street. Lives are wrecked that way. -Ali MacGraw

Small businesses should have the same ability to reach customers as powerful corporations. A blogger should have the same ability to find an audience as a media conglomerate. -Al Franken

I have an RSS reader, Feeddler. I mostly subscribe to board game blogs – they have reviews of new games and discussions about trends. It's straight-up dork talk. -Rich Sommer

Most of us still haven't grasped the fact that everything we commit to the digital space – not just our public blogs and broadcast tweets, but every private text message, email, and voicemail is likely to be stored and accessible. Forever. -Douglas Rushkoff

If money can't be made reporting and writing articles, then professionals simply can't do it anymore. Unless we adopt the position that the amateur blogosphere is really capable of taking on the role that the 'New York Times' and CNN play, then we do need solutions for paying for content. -Douglas Rushkoff

As a professional journalist who nonetheless champions a 'people's' Internet, I am happy to compete against the thousands of amateur bloggers out there reporting and commenting on the same stories I do. -Douglas Rushkoff

In a faraway land called 'pre-2000,' what Earthlings now call blogging was called 'keeping a diary.' It's hard work to do well. I tried doing it in the early 1990s but had to stop because I no longer had a life – instead I had this thing that generated anecdotes to go into my diary. The diary took over and I had to stop. -Douglas Coupland

When I started blogging in 2004, I responded to every comment no matter how nasty the reader was. I was generally polite, believing that these critics would be so charmed by my professionalism that they would see the error of their misogynist ways and swiftly run out to read a bell hooks book. Ha! -Jessica Valenti

One of the difficult things, especially about blogging, is that you put all of your personal out there, into the political. And what's been difficult, for me at least, is trying to keep some of the personal for myself. -Jessica Valenti

I kind of love that there's not really a feminist canon; or maybe there is, but it's being changed, that it's a constantly moving canon in the feminist blogosphere. I love that. -Jessica Valenti

I think talking is as casual as blogging, and sometimes writing can be as casual as talking. My informal writing style is a political choice, because I want feminism to be more accessible. -Jessica Valenti

There's something really terrible about having your BlackBerry next to your bed or having your laptop in the living room when you're talking to someone. The biggest source of stress in my life is the screen, the blogging. -Jessica Valenti

With the evolution of social media that includes blogging, Facebook, and Twitter, who and how information is delivered has changed tremendously. The landscape for news is a different place, and people have to accept that. -Michael Eric Dyson

Franchesca and Sharkey, my French bulldogs, have their own blog. And they are brilliant at it. -Martha Stewart

I am obsessed with planning travel! Not just traveling, which I love, but the whole planning process and all the details that go into it. I subscribe to all these travel blogs and airline forums and research hotels and activities and destinations for hours on end, and I volunteer to plan trips for everyone I know. -Lauren Weisberger

If you write a blog post, you've got something to say; you're not just creating words and synonyms. We'd like the computers to actually pick up on that semantic meaning. -Ray Kurzweil

There is such a polarized discussion of economics among people like analysts, columnists, bloggers; often, they end up just saying that views other than their own should not even be discussed. I find that frustrating. There is no intellectual progress without considering lots and lots of different views. -Adam Davidson

Twittering and blogging and all that is fine, but there is no idea of how to phrase something beautifully; how to use language to create an emotion. It's just passing information and sometimes very superficial information. -Isabel Allende

Every pastor, youth pastor, and every parent is in competition with the Internet and the information it is spreading. Most young people don't get their news from CNN or CBS; they get it from bloggers. -Josh McDowell

I loathe blogs when I look at them. Blogs look, to me, illiterate. They look hasty, like someone babbling. -Paul Theroux

As my blog editor knows all too well, I wasn't all that keen to enter the blogosphere world. -Warren Bennis

I no longer buy papers or tabloids or magazines or read blogs. I used to. -Adele

Blogs are evil. Actually, the blogs aren't as evil as blog comments. -Chrissy Teigen

Degree actually came to me and asked me if I wanted to be a part of their campaign, and I thought it was just really exciting and important, obviously to my fans, and growing up I had tons of OMG moments. I get to share my own moments through video blogs. -Ashley Tisdale

My family has had to move and change their name and have been subject to threats from right wing blogs calling for my son, for example, to be killed to get at me. -Julian Assange

I feel sometimes and in some ways like Linda Romanoli and Monica Velour; I feel marginalized because I'm in my fifties. If you went online and you look at some of the blogs, which one can do on a lonely night, it's pretty startling what people will say about you just because you're in your fifties. -Kim Cattrall

Being behind the lens gives me a completely different perspective, and because of my blog, I get to do projects and attend shows lending me another angle. -Hanneli Mustaparta

Never blog just to put something out there. I would post only things that excite me. -Hanneli Mustaparta

The Guardian's 'Word of Mouth' blog bridges the gap between blogging and serious food journalism. -Yotam Ottolenghi

I still blog, but I do think blogging will become obsolete, as there are more ways of interacting on the Web with low barriers to entry for people to engage and participate. -Biz Stone

I had been writing songs for other people for a while, and I made a demo and I put it on my Myspace, which Perez Hilton found and blogged about on his site. -Natalia Kills

Sales departments use social to nurture leads and close sales. HR posts job openings and vets applicants. Community and support squads mine networks, blogs and forums with deep listening tools. -Ryan Holmes

When you think of technology that gets people excited – long lines at stores, enthusiastic reviews in the blogosphere, passionate evangelists – the first thing to come to mind probably isn't thermostats. Then, along came Nest. -Ryan Holmes

Importantly, companies are using social media to do things that go way beyond just chatting up existing customers on Facebook. Sales departments use social to nurture leads and close sales. HR posts job openings and vets applicants. Community and support squads mine networks, blogs and forums with deep listening tools. -Ryan Holmes

While we can all access articles and information in so many places now – across blogs, in newspapers, on video – there is something very powerful about putting it all together into an edited format in a single issue that has a narrative stretching across the themes. -Michael Wolf

Blogging is great, and I read blogs all day long. However, my goal is really to have a deep, meaningful discussion with people. For some reason, I'm able to accomplish this best via email. -Jason Calacanis

If you get people to commit to an email relationship, it's the deepest, most intimate relationship you can have online. Much deeper than Facebook and certainly more intimate than a blog. -Jason Calacanis

I need to get a wife. But it's hard, you know, it's hard to find a girl you can trust. Some of these girls, they want to go out with you so they can blog about you. -Judah Friedlander

I had one girl send me an e-mail saying she wants to go out with me, but it's like a two-pronged deal because she wants to blog the date. And I'm like, No! I don't want to be on a reality show. -Judah Friedlander

I have my website, The Ruckus, which is an Internet site, similar to the Funny or Die format, where people post funny videos. I get a chance to rate their videos; they get a chance to blog and kick it with me. -J. B. Smoove

Police blog or entertainment news, it's just good to see your name in print. -J. B. Smoove

When I first came to New York, I was so bored. My friends were like, 'Do a blog. It's the hip thing to do for male models.' -River Viiperi

I have an amazing social-media wing man who manages my Facebook fan site. All my blogs get copied there. -Jason Mraz

I think probably the thing I'm worst at is the most ephemeral stuff, like blogs. I find it really hard to write. And I'm often been asked to write columns for papers in Peru. And I can't. I would die. There's no way I could write a column. -Daniel Alarcon

I follow blogs, particularly all the main political ones – Guido Fawkes, Iain Dale, Coffee House, Paul Waugh, Iain Martin in the Wall Street Journal, and so on. And some American ones, like the Huffington Post, Gawker, Boing Boing; or Eater and Daily Candy, also American, which are about where to go to eat. -Ben Schott

I do all my shopping on the Web. I do much of my research online. I have a blog, too. It is definitely a distraction. It is definitely a blessing. What blessing isn't a distraction, though? -Cathleen Schine

If a stranger is writing something completely fictitious, or insulting me on a blog or a tabloid, I don't take it personally. -Dasha Zhukova

When I was first writing 'Feed' – which was the first book I published as Mira – I talked about it very openly on my blog, on Twitter, that I was writing this book, and it wasn't until after it was sold that I said 'Mira Grant' wrote this book. And the reason there was really purely marketing-based. -Seanan McGuire

When I was getting ready for the release of 'Deadline,' when it was coming out soon, I decided that the appropriate way to get people excited about the book would be to write a novella in 30 pieces and publish a piece on my blog every day for a month… during a convention, a week-and-a-half-long trip to New York, and a doll traders' expo. -Seanan McGuire

'Feed' is about zombies and politics and blogging. It's about how George Romero actually saved the world! It's 'Night Of The Living Dead' meets 'The West Wing.' -Seanan McGuire

Once I found this possibility to use Twitter and Facebook and my blog to connect to my readers, I'm going to use it, to connect to them and to share thoughts that I cannot use in the book. -Paulo Coelho

This may sound a little bit idealistic, but when I go to my blog, my Facebook page, my Twitter account, I talk to different people from all over the world, and you see how it's easy to establish a dialogue. -Paulo Coelho

There is something so hopeful about a diary, a journal, a new notebook, which Joan Didion and Virginia Woolf both wrote about. A blog. Perhaps we all are waiting for someone to discover us. -Lily Koppel

In our era of celebrity, where every life is made public through email, blogs and Facebook, one of the greatest oddities may be that there is not a livelier discussion about the individual's basic need for a more private space. -Lily Koppel

I read a blog about this young filmmaker in the Philippines who made a short film, and one of the characters in the film reads my novel and then starts discussing the novel with someone. The idea that my book can inspire another artist and be part of that other artist's work… that's the reason I write. -Miguel Syjuco

The more Mommy blogs going nuclear over playground etiquette I read and birthday parties of glazed adults munching cupcakes like demoralized zombies I attend, I realize this is what my friends who conceived before me meant by, 'You just won't care.' -Emma McLaughlin

My career wouldn't exist without blogs, electronic text, hyperlinks, and mass online audiences. -Ezra Klein

I'm pretty adept with computers and Photoshop for my blog, and I found my style with a conversational voice and an image-ready column. -Robert Mankoff

I'm not big on to-do lists. Instead, I use e-mail and desktop folders and my online calendar. So when I walk up to my desk, I can focus on the e-mails I've flagged and check the folders that are monitoring particular projects and particular blogs. -Bill Gates

While I have never learned to use a computer, I am surrounded by family and friends who carry information to me from blogs, Facebook, Twitter, and various websites. -Billy Graham

There's plenty to criticize about the mass media, but they are the source of regular information about a wide range of topics. You can't duplicate that on blogs. -Noam Chomsky

Before blogs, it was all about physical presence. We used to send out videos and audiotapes to communicate. Blogging and the Internet allow us to engage in a lot more real time conversations as opposed to a one-way dump of information or a message. -Indra Nooyi

I had an advantage because people would post me on blogs because I had co-signs from Kanye West, Def Jam, and G.O.O.D. Music. Everything I put out, the blogs would put up. When I realized that, I used that to my advantage and helped build my following on my own. -Big Sean

I had racially prejudiced comments directed at me on different blogs. People think that just because you're in the spotlight, you're fair game. It's hard, and I don't think you're ready at any age for it. Thankfully, I have some great fans who got me through it. -Kat Graham

I don't read blogs. I'm living the life they're writing about. So why read about it? -Future

I think blogging is a muscle that most people wear out. -Warren Ellis

I've made sure to always update my web properties constantly – Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, my Hypebeast blog… making sure I divided content across all of them to keep each outlet fresh to keep people coming back. -Theophilus London

I love to see the rarest movies, the most talked-about movies and documentaries. I read all the reviews and compare them to see if it's worth going! I have a secret movie critic blog I have shown no one or promoted, and I intend to keep it that way. -Theophilus London

I talk about myself. That's what I am. I'm a blogger. I have always decided that I was going to be an expert on one thing, and I am an expert on this person, and so I write about it. -Mena Grabowski Trott

When I started my blog, it was really this one goal – I said, 'I am not going to be famous to the world, but I could be famous to people on the Internet.' And I set a goal. I said, 'I'm going to win an award,' because I had never won an award in my entire life. -Mena Grabowski Trott

I am a blogger – that is an amazing thing for me, because it captures a moment in time every day. -Mena Grabowski Trott

Digital activism did not spring immaculately out of Twitter and Facebook. It's been going on ever since blogs existed. -Rebecca MacKinnon

One thing is very clear from the chatter I see on Chinese blogs, and also from just what people in China tell me, is that Google is much more popular among China's Internet users than the United States. -Rebecca MacKinnon

The 'Shawshank Redemption' has nothing to do with China, but that hasn't kept social media censors from blocking the movie's title from searches on the country's most popular Twitter-like microblogging service, Weibo. -Rebecca MacKinnon

I haven't heard of any cases of anti-American blog posts being censored or bloggers encountering consequences for anti-American speech on the web in China. -Rebecca MacKinnon

Right after September 11, 2001, there weren't really any blogs in China, but there were a lot of Chinese chatrooms – and there were a lot of conversations in which Chinese netizens were saying things like, 'served them right.' That was definitely not the official Chinese government policy – which condemned the terrorists. -Rebecca MacKinnon

I do not know of a Chinese blogger who has gone to jail, but I know several who have had their blogs shut down. I also know some Chinese bloggers who have received threatening phone calls from police warning them to 'be careful.' In some cases, they stopped blogging for a while. -Rebecca MacKinnon

The Tunisian blogger and activist Sami Ben Gharbia has written passionately about how U.S. government involvement in grassroots digital spaces can endanger those who are already vulnerable to accusations by nasty regimes of acting as foreign agents. -Rebecca MacKinnon

Microsoft runs the world's biggest blogging platform, MSN Spaces. -Rebecca MacKinnon

In 1998, I started a blog, something I could control very easily and update at my own whim. -Jami Attenberg

Publicists cater to bloggers because they can play them; bloggers cater to publicists because they want their ads. -Stephen Rodrick

'Dependent web' platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Google and Yahoo are where people go to discover and share new content. Independent sites are the millions of blogs, community and service sites where passionate individuals 'hang out' with like-minded folks. This is where shared content is often created. -John Battelle

I talk to my fan club members, and I blog, and they know what's going on. But as far as Twitter, I'll be in a restaurant, and I'll get home, and somebody tweeted, and they talked about what I ordered and what I was wearing. In some cases, that could be dangerous, because you don't want everybody to know where you are every second of every day. -Carrie Underwood

People used to ask me questions on my blog about how to break into the acting industry. You often have to start out in parts where you have very few words, but you still have to try to make an impact. -Stephen Amell

In a way, publishing in 2005 was similar to publishing in 1950. Nobody kept blogs; that was still optional. I didn't even have a website then. -Gabrielle Zevin

There is a line between scurrilous nonsense and serious discussion that laps over, especially in this day and age when you've got all this electronic media and these blogs and this kind of fanatical impulse to bring down the opposing candidate. -Robert Dallek

Nowadays, everyone seems to have a blog that finds readers. -Robert Dallek

No matter what I do, I always come home to my blog. -Matt Mullenweg

If you still use 'admin' as a username on your blog, change it. -Matt Mullenweg

It turns out that social networks drive a heck of a lot of traffic to blogs. -Matt Mullenweg

When you look at things like Flickr and Youtube, they are specialised blogging systems, so why hasn't blogging encompassed that ease of functionality? -Matt Mullenweg

Now an audience of more than 1 billion people is only a click away from every voice online, and remarkable stories and content can gain flash audiences as people share via social networks, blogs and e-mail. This radically equalizes the power relationship between, say, a blogger and a multibillion dollar corporation. -Matt Mullenweg

Sometimes you might feel blogs are like TV: You have a thousand channels, but nothing good is on. -Matt Mullenweg

There are 100 million blogs in the world, and it's part of my job as the co-founder of WordPress to help many more people start blogging. -Matt Mullenweg

I have an amazing social-media wing man who manages my Facebook fan site. All my blogs get copied there. My e-mail in-box exploded, and I don't have that kind of time. My mom and sister have their whole life on Facebook, and I'm not there. -Jason Mraz

I went to a couple of Rangers games at the Garden, and someone at the NHL had seen me and figured I was a fan and decided to approach me about having a blog during the playoffs. -Eddie Cahill

I started as a mommy blogger, and it's been really great. -Constance Marie

I must be the last person online to have been struck with this realization, but it's amazing how the Internet has empowered hundreds of ordinary people, turning them into little Diane Sawyers and Anderson Coopers as they snap and blog away. -Bryan Burrough

Everything related to 'SNL,' that was very sudden – from the time I found out I was joining the cast to the time I could read on a blog that someone watching the show thinks I'm fat, that was about 30 days. That blog part, that could've moved a little more slowly. But hey – it's all material, right? -Casey Wilson

I started my blog as an online diary. I moved to New York for a job, and I kind of wanted to keep my pictures all in one place. Also, I just love style blogs and wanted to join in on the fun! -Ashley Madekwe

I'm terrible at posting regularly; I don't deserve the blog success! -Ashley Madekwe

You can't hold up a blog; you can hold up a magazine. -Nancy Gibbs

We're all bloggers and punks and rebels with cameras. There is absolutely no respect for career journalists anymore. -Richard Engel

Cory Doctorow should be too busy for lunch. He's co-editor of, and a prolific contributor to, one of the most influential blogs in the world, Boing Boing. Over the past decade the Canadian-born writer has published 16 books, mostly science fiction novels. He campaigns vigorously on the politics of the digital age. -Tim Harford

Here is what I am not going to do: I am not going to go to a restaurant, take pictures of my food, download them, and call that a blog. That is beyond the pale. The Internet is such a bazaar of self-indulgences that I don't know why that particular one should bug me so much. But it really does. -Jonathan Dee

People don't listen to terrestrial radio. They don't find their music that way. They don't get their news that way. They go to blogs. They go through Sirius/XM. They go through all these different places. -Kaskade

I have an odd fetish with nails. I was always doing beauty blogs about nails, and it would be on Fridays called 'Friday's Fingertip Fetish.' It became so popular that a nail polish company approached me, and Fingertip Fetish was born. -Adrienne Bailon

The fact that there's all these really messed-up people on the Internet is not a statement about the Internet. It is a statement about those people and what they do, and we need to basically say that you guys are doing something unacceptable and not generalise it into a comment about 'this is what's happening to the blogosphere.' -Tim O'Reilly

Read every book, blog, website, whatever, about what you want to be an expert in. -James Altucher

I keep track of my blog stats, Facebook subs, my Amazon rank, Twitter followers, Facebook likes per posts, my chess ranking. I get stressed when they all don't go up. -James Altucher

I don't even use italics or boldface; that's clutter, not clarity. Fancy fonts are fine for blogs, just as calligraphy is fine for diaries. But when you're writing for anyone other than yourself, you want to get as universal as possible. -Andrew Vachss

I have a problem with blogs – all the best writers benefit from edits. -Rick Moranis

This whole blogging stuff has been bugging me for years. Talk about no filter on things. People feel free to do and say whatever they want with no vetting, with no editing, with nothing. -Rick Moranis

I am sure if you went back to the days of 'My Fair Lady,' they would have had one public dress rehearsal, and that is it. And in a way, I would like to go back to that. Now you have people tweeting and blogging immediately, so you may as well regard your first preview as your opening night because you are going to get reviews. -Tim Rice

I have a slightly crap blog where I opine on anything that occurs to me and run the occasional silly competition. -Mark Lawrence

Anonymity is a universal convention of the blogosphere, and the wicked expedience is that you can speak without consequences. -Lee Siegel

Everyone seems to be fleeing from the responsibilities that come from being who you are. I think that is why the blogosphere is thriving. It allows people to develop a fantasy self. -Lee Siegel

As a senior editor at Tor Books and the manager of our science fiction and fantasy line, I rarely blog to promote specific projects I'm involved with, for reasons that probably don't need a lot of explanation. -Patrick Nielsen Hayden

Before the Internet, before BBSes and Fidonet and Usenet and LiveJournal and blogs and Facebook and Twitter, before the World Wide Web and hot-and-cold-online-everything, science fiction fandom had a long-lived, robust, well-debugged technology of social networking and virtual community. -Patrick Nielsen Hayden

Obviously it makes a difference if an author has a public online profile of some sort, even just down to the level of having a moderately popular blog. Most books sell 5, 10, or 15 thousand copies. Most are midlist books. With those people, even a modest online presence can make a difference in sales. -Patrick Nielsen Hayden

I have a severe Google Reader habit. I think people will use blog forms and Twitter to contrive fiction. -Patrick Nielsen Hayden

I think that in the blogosphere, the idea is to have the most controversial stuff up. -Monica

Like, radio is closer to a Tumblr, or a blog, or Twitter, than it is to television, I think. -Ira Glass

As white authors, bloggers, and readers, we must stop promoting diversity as a business opportunity or a chance to buy ally points with our disposable income. -Jennifer Armintrout

People are worried about what's going to happen to journalism – and they should be. Every day, the blogosphere is getting better and print media is getting worse; you have to be an idiot not to see that. -Kara Swisher

I have found, writing a blog, that being non-opaque is necessary. You pretty much have to say what you know in much more firm terms or risk that the legions who always know more than you do will tell the story better. -Kara Swisher

I, for one, am pretty exhausted since I started blogging almost a year ago. But I am blaming that on my two sons, aged 3 and 6, whose perpetual-motion-machine energy is hard to keep up with at my advanced age. -Kara Swisher

I operate under the theory that all publicity is good publicity, and then, if that theory doesn't work, you just say that any newspaper article ends up on the bottom of the parrot cage. But, of course, you can't line a parrot cage with Internet bloggers, can you? -Joel Edgerton

A number of bloggers in economics and the financial sector have risen to prominence through the sheer strength of their work. Note it was not their family connections nor ties to Ivy League schools or elite banks, but rather the strength of their research, analysis and writing. -Barry Ritholtz

Do we value privacy in any real way? Thinking about blogs, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace… all these suggest we value exposure rather more. And instead of challenging this transformation, as they are supposed to – certainly at the more thoughtful edges of the art – novelists are buying into it wholesale. -Guy Gavriel Kay

I think that Twitter and YT and blogs are keeping media more honest. Everyone can be a journalist now. Everyone is a fact checker. -Shane Smith

I had a blog where I tried to be transparent while giving away nothing. I tweeted and Facebooked badly. As a writer, your 'voice' is your calling card, yet my voice was becoming indistinguishable from billions of other voices. -Ellen Potter

I will not let my sales figures dictate what I say on the blog, because the blog is what I want to say. -John Scalzi

We rely on editors of blogs or websites and television stations to supply us these images, and the filter is becoming very thin and very porous. The ratings race for TV and websites is incredibly fierce, and one of the ways of getting people to watch is through graphic violent images. -Dan Gilroy

After I left school, where I studied art, photography and textiles at A-level, I started doing an apprenticeship in interior design, but I wasn't really enjoying it very much, so I decided to do something creative, and in 2009, I began blogging. -Zoe Sugg

Literally, I don't have a television. So I don't really know what's happening pop-culturally. I read the 'New York Times.' And there's one worldwide cabin blog that I look at. -Cary Fukunaga

I don't read fashion blogs all that much. I do read magazines, and I trust my friends' opinions, even though we all dress very differently. -Sophia Amoruso

Flickr was designed partly to market itself. There are a lot features, in place early on, that let people take their photo, upload it to Flickr and post them elsewhere, on their own Web site or their blog, which meant a lot of incoming links. -Stewart Butterfield

Guys, there's only one thing I hate more than bloggers who start sentences with 'guys' – and it's those mealy-mouth hipsters who crochet codpieces and their ye-olde-sideburned friends who pickle stuff and slaughter their own gluten-free goats. -Jill Soloway

Things that are interesting, people will pass around the Internet, around the world. And the blogosphere is only the tip of the iceberg. -Robert Scoble

Never change the URL of your blog. I've done it once, and I lost much of my readership. It took several months to build up the same reader patterns and trust. -Robert Scoble

Be the authority on your product/company. You should know more about your product than anyone else alive if you're writing a blog about it. -Robert Scoble

There's a lot I've yet to say about 'American Idol,' so I am excited about teaming up with 'Idol Go Home' and starting my blog. -Brian Dunkleman

I'm noticing a lot of the big bloggers who've posted about politics are experiencing an ugly backlash. Readers are angry because they went to the bloggers' sites for a laugh, not a lecture. Again, it's a question of being appropriate for the audience. -Jen Lancaster

I don't read the reviews, the blogs, or anything else. Instead, I feel the audience when I show the film. -Lee Daniels

When it comes to individual bloggers, they have many choices now that include blogging for a network or going solo. -Jason Calacanis

Today you can start a blog, build an audience, and give the advertising slots to AdBrite or Google AdSense. -Jason Calacanis

If folks focus in on a niche and own it, there is a good chance they could make half a living from blogging. -Jason Calacanis

The blogosphere is real, and it can be really harsh on fakes… so, if you're a phoney, you're going to get your bell rung. -Jason Calacanis

Everyone's drunk on the term 'blog.' -Jason Calacanis

Do I think there's going to be a business in blogging? Yes. -Jason Calacanis

If I said I was going to make a newsletter that made $2-$3 million a year, no one would question me. If I say, 'It's a blog,' everyone questions me. -Jason Calacanis

I think it hurts blogs when they have to turn off their comments. -Jason Calacanis

Social media, like blogs, are truth-seeking technologies. In fact, the Internet itself is the greatest truth-generating device ever created. -Jason Calacanis

I think there are a lot of really positive aspects to social media for novelists. Even though our work is pretty solitary, through Twitter and Tumblr and Facebook and Instagram and blogging in general, we're better able to connect directly with readers. -Holly Black

We have lost the idea that something can be secret because it is valuable, not because it's shameful. If you share everything with everybody, what have you got for yourself? I tweet and I blog, but I save a lot for myself. Not because I am ashamed. -Patrick Ness

I'm not good with blogs and social networks because those things come and go. By the time I am used to one thing, a new type of social media is already trending. -Tao Okamoto

For almost a year, I sporadically made these rather lame video blogs in my dorm. These video blogs were reflective of most video blogs during that time in that they had no real structure and were kind of just all over the place. -Ray William Johnson

I don't care what people are saying about me, good or bad, in blogs or on Twitter or in the media. There will always be people who don't like you and don't like your books. Ignore them. -J. A. Konrath

We all need to focus on our writing. Because the millions of readers out there don't care about your blog. -J. A. Konrath

I think my blog is fairly circumspect and elliptical. I've written personal essays, but they are short and to the point: in and out, and that's that. -Kate Christensen

My blog is a celebration of the unexpected, settled, happy life I find myself living in Portland, Maine, at the ripe old age of fifty with someone I deeply love and am very happy with. That's part of why I started the blog. -Kate Christensen

The printed word will be around long after many of our digital creations are gone, either because books don't require monthly hosting, and blogs and websites do… or because the languages and platforms for which a particular digital creation was published will become obsolete. -Jeffrey Zeldman

Now, not every blog post or 'Top 10 Ways to Make Money on the Internet' piece deserves to live forever. But there's gold among the dross, and there are web publications that we would do well to preserve for historical purposes. -Jeffrey Zeldman

At one point, I was blogging prodigiously, in the late '90s; and I was getting, like, millions of pages because I was, like, one of the only people writing about web design, and I was always writing about web design. -Jeffrey Zeldman

During the day, I don't read too much of the blog traffic, but then at night, I read transcripts of all of the network packages, and then I watch the wires and some of the political blogs. -Nicolle Wallace

If you put up a blog, people can cut out the middle man and get material to you. Which is really helpful because a lot of time there's really cool stuff out there that we just don't see. Because, y'know, the agent is acting in our best interest, but it does sometimes prevent some of the good stuff from getting through. -Zach Galligan

Some people have a blog that's, like, 'Today I brushed my teeth.' Well, who cares? Who cares that you brushed your teeth. Okay – you brushed your teeth! That's so massively egocentric, it's just ridiculous. -Zach Galligan

I hate to be general, but I rely on Andrew Keenan-Bolger for all things music. Every season, he releases a mixtape on his blog of the most incredible and current music. I download it instantly, and it gets me through the season and keeps me educated musically. -Max von Essen

My weekends are oases of time and space, where I am able to draw a breath and dive into the stuff I couldn't get to that week – the great article I bookmarked, the friend whose emails I kept dropping, the blog post I'd meant to write on a subject that wasn't timely but was still important. -Rachel Sklar

In September 2005, I was three things: the media blogger for 'FishbowlNY,' a maniacal Daily Show fan, and the only person to smuggle a tape recorder and camera into a big Magazine Publishers of America event featuring Jon Stewart interviewing five hotshot magazine editors in an unbelievable bloodbath. -Rachel Sklar

What's surprised me most about the demands of blogging – the relentlessness of it. 24-hour news cycle, every media imaginable right here in New York, totally fair game. -Rachel Sklar

I totally consider Fishbowl my full time job – I have to say I freaking love doing this blog. I just enjoy the medium so much; I love the fact that it requires me to read amazing stuff by hilarious and talented people and forces me to know what's going on in the world. -Rachel Sklar

Fans write to us via our publisher and more than ever via the Internet, blogs and fan sites, and good writers should be actively seeking out that interaction. Gone are the days when writers are dead or hidden away in dusty attics; nowadays, you've got to get out there. -Chris Riddell

At Shutterstock, we've been offering tutorials to customers and contributors on our blog for many years. Our audience already viewed us as thought leaders on the latest digital and creative skills; we felt it so natural for us to launch Skillfeed, which is an online marketplace for professional learning. -Jon Oringer

Left-leaning bloggers have had a tremendous impact on the Democratic Party. -Jose Antonio Vargas

I was the first blogger on the Times's website. That happened during the Iraq war, when I wanted an outlet for the things I was seeing every day that couldn't fit into just two columns a week. Then I became interested in using multimedia, specifically as a way to engage young people. -Nicholas Kristof

Ben Affleck exec-produced a documentary for HBO called 'Reporter' about my 2007 win-a-trip journey. I take the trip each year partly to encourage young people to think about global humanitarian issues: I think blogs by a student may be more compelling for that audience than my own work. -Nicholas Kristof

Governments must ensure that the power of blogs is cultivated and implemented in collaborative ways, with a view to preserve peace and human dignity. -Nayef Al-Rodhan

Studios might not be able to figure out my leanings, but anyone who visits my blog or reads my Twitter feed or meets me in person will realize right away that I am a huge superhero fan and a fanatic about Superman in particular. -Chris Roberson

One thing that we learned that we published on our blog post is that uniformly, men lie about their height by almost exactly two inches. So if you look at a plot of census bureau data on the distribution of men's heights in the U.S. and you plot men's heights on OKCupid, it is exactly shifted two inches to the left. -Sam Yagan

As a general rule, when you comment on a blog, make it knowledgeable or witty and, most of all, relevant to that post – then, simply sign it with your name and your book title. Resist the urge to brag or sell your book. -M. J. Rose

We need to accept that the commandments of God aren't just a long list of good ideas. They aren't 'life hacks' from an Internet blog or motivational quotes from a Pinterest board. -Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Writing has never been like therapy for me, but blogging comes a little closer – I can smack-talk freely and frequently, and this is good for me. -Kaui Hart Hemmings

People think they have a perfect idea of who you are from a four-second Snapchat video… and fake blogs, stories, magazine covers. In reality, that's not the case. Nobody knows who I am except family and my close friends. -Kylie Jenner

In the past, a writer had to go outside and get to know others before learning about their work, but the Internet has made humanity more accessible for misanthropes like me. I read blogs, tweets, Facebook posts and Reddit threads where people detail their jobs. -Victor LaValle

I type my sermon notes into my BlackBerry, then I upload my sermon notes to my blog, my Facebook page and some of the information to my Twitter account. That's 100,000 people I'm sharing the Gospel with by the virtue of typing it into my BlackBerry as opposed to writing it down. That is being efficient with my time. -Roland Martin

I know this sounds weird, but I was into storyboarding when I was younger. I loved coming up with my own style through fashion blogs and magazines. But I've never liked trying things on. I don't know why. It was more about making mood boards. I've loved fashion my whole life, but more the imagery of it than actually wearing it. -Gigi Hadid

I spend all day replying to tweets and reblogging posts and sharing fan art. I think it's the most important thing I can possibly do, to stay involved in the community as a part of the community, not ahead of the community. I'm very much the same level of them in it. -Tyler Oakley

What I'm interested in is how your career choices can affect your private life, romantically or with your mom, your relatives, your friends, your hometown, and how media manipulates information – not newspapers or blogs, but the magazines that people impulse-buy that tell you what's hot and who's not. -Xavier Dolan

Without editors planning assignments and copy editors fixing mistakes, reporters quickly deteriorate into underwear guys writing blogs from their den. -George Vecsey

I'm aware of the fact that I don't know how to do it all, but I want for my blog to be a place where people can come to ask questions so that I can look for the answers for them. That's the kind of work that I did for my books, and I want to transition that to my blog for more of a community feel. -Katherine Schwarzenegger

I read the 'New York Times,' 'USA Today,' the 'Union-Tribune,' then go online to Drudge, CNN, Fox News, blogs. -Steve Breen

I follow all these fashion blogs that are cool and inspire me. I'm not really obsessed with anyone except for the people that I like romantically. I get excited when they post. Sometimes I like to stalk my exes. -Kylie Jenner

Authors worry. We worry about writing. Worry about our editors, our agents, our reviews, and our readers. We worry about everything, including all forms of social media including blogs, Facebook, Twitter, and personal websites. -David Macinnis Gill

I love the idea of a website/blog being a catalyst for propelling people out into the world, and I enjoy it most when people write me to say that their world looked or smelled or felt a little different because of something that I wrote. -Keri Smith

I do not see the process of blogging as a separate thing from creating art. This is in part why I do not like to be known for being a 'blogger,' as this is just one form of output for creative ideas. -Keri Smith

I had a blog and was documenting my life as a college student in an art school. I had a few comments left by a few girls asking if I could do a tutorial on how I did my makeup. I didn't think my makeup was all that special, but I try my best to share whatever I can with my viewers. -Michelle Phan

There will be four ancillary shows on the MyMusic channel, and we'll be updating an entire blog with up-to-the-minute music news. You can visit it like BuzzFeed or Pitchfork and get album reviews. It's all as part of the sitcom experience, written by the characters. -Benny Fine

I really like baking, and I really like playing video games. I saw a few geeky baking blogs but I never saw a show on television or on the Internet like that. So I thought, 'Why not be the first to try it out?' And it went really well. -Rosanna Pansino

Just to see if I liked vlogging, I uploaded a video of my sister and I cleaning up a river in a canoe for Earth Day. The sound was horrible, and the quality was horrible… But you have to blog what's interesting to you and not care what anyone thinks. -Rosanna Pansino

The digital native doesn't send a letter to the editor anymore. She goes online and starts a blog. -Rupert Murdoch

I have, for a few years, been writing comedy prose – short pieces for my blog – because I found it to be a good way to write while I was on a TV show. It was different enough from my scripts that it felt like a break, but it still was comedy and very fun. I like to do comedy! -Megan Amram

No matter how much we tweet, blog and post, nothing in business is as powerful as actual face time with prospective business partners and customers. -Jay Samit

Baseball is a game that shouts, 'Slow Down' to America. Stop tweeting, texting, blogging, watching cable news, and obsessing about polls, lost planes, and focus-group-driven politicians. -Mike Barnicle

I think blogging, by and large, is basically therapy. And I'm sure, and I know, that there are some terrific bloggers and some legitimate bloggers. But I think, by and large, a huge percentage of people who are blogging are doing it for self-therapy. -Mike Barnicle

I was doing some YouTube covers, and I had a decently popular blog on Tumblr. -Halsey

I was like, 'I want to start a blog to get my ideas out and keep my brain working so in five years I'm not an idiot.' -Katie Nolan

The blogosphere might be very useful as propaganda or as therapy. But it's not journalism. -Pete Hamill

I will not stop my blog. -John McAfee

My blog is actually all self-photography unless it's a photo shoot. -Solange Knowles

It's actually difficult to know what anyone wants these days. Tastes seem to change so quickly nowadays depending on the latest blog. The latest Facebook page. Twitter is somewhat important in telling you what you should want. -Michael Gross

I buy way too many cookbooks and read food blogs at night when I can't sleep. -Lauren Kate

Throughout the day, I frequently use my iPhone to check 'Deadline Hollywood' and my Twitter feed, as well as the 'Daily Beast,' the 'New York Times,' 'Metsblog,' and 'Thejetsblog.' -R. J. Cutler

The difference between a reporter, a newspaper columnist, a paid speaker, a television personality, a radio talk show host, a blogger, a movie producer, a publicist, and a political strategist, is growing less – and not more – distinct. -George Packer

Part of the mystique of blogs is their protean quality: They work both sides of the divide between politics and media, further blurring the already fuzzy distinctions between reporter, pundit, political operative, activist, and citizen. -George Packer

The constellation of opinion called the blogosphere consists, like the stars themselves, partly of gases. This is what makes blogs addictive – that is, both pleasurable and destructive: They're so easy to consume and so endlessly available. -George Packer

A curious thing about this rarefied world is that bloggers are almost unfailingly contemptuous toward everyone except one another. -George Packer

As a congressman, why should I be forced to peruse cable stations and blog sites for information on the discussions and then be asked to vote for the deal when I have no input and no time to know even what's in it? -John Fleming

Back in 2010, it didn't matter when it was only Cuban democrats, Zimbabwean dissidents, Afghan reformists and Russian bloggers whose lives and liberty were put at risk by Wikileaks' wilfully negligent data dumps. -Terry Glavin

I could have been like so many other bloggers or 'influencers' who just have their agent and are more like celebrities, but I've never wanted it to be only like that. Of course, I still want that part in my life, but I also wanted to create a brand. -Chiara Ferragni

It's bizarre to say all bloggers are sellouts. -Chiara Ferragni

When someone calls me a blogger, I think, 'That's one of the things I used to do.' I'm a creative director for my shoe brand; I'm the editor-in-chief of 'The Blonde Salad,' which is a website and not just a blog anymore. -Chiara Ferragni

I don't follow other fashion blogs, but I do follow other fashionistas on Instagram. Many of them are my friends; it's really cool: they can inspire me, and they're also my friends. I also look for inspiration in the street; there are so many fashionable women walking around. -Chiara Ferragni

When I started my blog, I wanted it to be like my house – my own little place that anyone could come to. -Chiara Ferragni

I bought a Cartier nail bracelet to celebrate the fifth anniversary of my blog. It's an investment piece, but it's simple enough to wear every day, and it's something that will last forever. -Chiara Ferragni

The worst is when you read things on the Internet blogs, because people don't hold back. Sometimes you read wonderful things, but sometimes it's really awful stuff. Like on the Fashion Spot, for example, people always comment on you. They forget that we might read that stuff. -Sara Sampaio

There's a lot going on in country music, with indie-label hipsters and underground bloggers arguing their interpretations of what country is, and pop-country stars defending themselves. That deserves to be poked fun at. -Sturgill Simpson

As writers, we have to make our own work – as bloggers, writing for video games, whatever we can do. Everyone breaks into the business in a different way. -Ransom Riggs

Know your target audience. Always keep them at the forefront of your mind. Understand their lifestyle and what they are looking for. Gather their feedback and use it to tailor your approach. The voice of the consumer is an essential input into the development of any fashion business or blog. -Imran Amed

Certain governments are suggesting that bloggers and tweeters aren't 'real' writers and, so, don't merit protection. A writer is anyone from a Nobel laureate to a debut blogger. They all get PEN's attention. -John Ralston Saul

That's the media now. They get lazy. Rumors become fact. Some blogger says something, next thing you know, it's in 'USA Today.' -Martina Navratilova

There's just a proliferation of blogs and the chattering classes and people talking. More avenues for people to make their feelings known, which is good. -Anderson Cooper

I wish more LPs would blog to help VCs and entrepreneurs understand them better. -Brad Feld

My initial desire to blog came from something that's always been my approach to investing – I'm a nerd, and I love to play with the technology, and part of my approach has really been to understand things both at a user level and at a reasonably deep tentacle level. -Brad Feld

The danger of the blogosphere is reading only those you agree with. While there are right-wing blogs that are entertaining freak shows, it's hard to find substantial journalism there. -Molly Ivins

If you've really got a problem with me, and you came and told me you had a problem with me, I'd be interested to listen to you. But if you're just some loser that sits there and hammers away on some blog form or whatever, I don't have time for that. Why even worry about it? -Guy Fieri

I never really thought I would make a blog myself. -Sofia Richie

If this acting thing doesn't work out, maybe I could be a blogger. -Retta

By having a blog, you can make yourself very accessible to your target audience. You can leave comments open on your blog so you can learn exactly what your audience likes about what you're doing with your business and about what they think you should change. -Fabrizio Moreira

By taking the time to learn how to blog properly, you'll be doing your business an incredible favor, as you will be able to drive a lot of business to your website for your blog. -Fabrizio Moreira

The best part of owning a blog is the fact that you are in control. You can write about anything you want to write about. You can decide how your blog looks. You can decide who to target. You can decide how to monetize the blog. You have full control! -Fabrizio Moreira

Stock photos are used everywhere on the Net. Chances are, the website you are on right now uses stock photos somewhere – maybe as the featured image of the blog post. This also means that there will always be a large market for stock photographers. -Fabrizio Moreira

You can get inspired from a magazine, yes, but you can also be inspired from a website, from a street-style blogger, from what people post on Instagram. -Eva Chen

Listener and reader input is every bit as important as anything any of us can say. We'd be like crazy people chattering in the middle of that empty field that Joe Biden thinks we should stand in to be safe from swine flu if it weren't for the calls, the letters, the blogs, and the reaction from our audience. -Mike Gallagher

If you have a food blog and want to connect with a bigger audience, Nom is for you. -Steve Chen

Each piece of content you create should lead your readers further down the path to purchase. Typically, sales and leads won't happen until a prospect has had multiple points of contact with you, so don't expect sales after a single blog post. -John Rampton

In the world's eyes, what they know of me is from the blogs. What they know is from the media. -Christina Milian

I was writing blogs before work, then I was writing at work, and then I started writing books on the weekend because you just have that sort of energy in your 20s; it's wonderful. -Zoe Foster Blake

I feel like one thing that a lot of creative people go through is that they feel like they don't have the right to be creative or to put their stuff out there. I'm glad that blogging from a young age kind of got that out of the way for me. -Tavi Gevinson

I actually never liked writing on my own or in school until I'd had my blog for a while and realized I'd been writing every day for years. -Tavi Gevinson

Some of my clothes are things that we'd play dress up with when we were little, and it's funny that now I'm wearing it, like, as an everyday thing. But if I say 'vintage' or 'thrifted' on the blog, there's this community of fashion bloggers, and I've become sort of tight with some of them, and we, like, just send each other packages. -Tavi Gevinson

Sometimes misunderstandings between bloggers and the MSM are the result of simple ignorance. -Molly Ivins

Arianna Huffington has exercised her renowned wisdom to give journalism another boost along the ever busier Internet. Her blog site promises to be an interesting challenge for those of us lucky enough to be invited to participate with our occasional contributions. -Walter Cronkite

I write my own blog every day. I do the Twitter every day and the Facebook. Without a gap. I do everything myself: I load my own photographs; I sometimes take my own videos and post them. -Amitabh Bachchan

When I wrote my first blog, I got one response. Now, I sometimes get as many as 400 responses for my posts. -Amitabh Bachchan

I felt the call to this industry because I enjoy broadcast journalism. I'm steeped in the news because I enjoy the news – I like reading papers; I like reading the blogs. I love talking to newsmakers and pundits, for that matter, about their opinions. I'm an information gatherer by nature, so that's what attracted me about this industry. -Megyn Kelly

I think people who read Internet blogs are usually trying to fit it in during a busy part of their day, and there's only so much information that you digest. Whereas an experience with a book is a little more comfortable, and I think people are a little more willing to really delve into information. -Mick Foley

In addition to all the good things it's done, the Internet has empowered an awful lot of people who would have been best off disempowered, including quite a few bloggers on both sides. -Tucker Carlson

Today's world requires a different leadership style – more collaboration and teamwork, including using Web 2.0 technologies. If you had told me I'd be video blogging and blogging, I would have said, 'No way.' And yet our 20-somethings in the company really pushed me to use that more. -John T. Chambers

Trawl through the world of blogs and tweets, and you will find readers complaining when they stumble upon a word they don't recognise, an attitude that doesn't accord with their own, a passage of thought they find hard work, a joke they don't get or of which they don't approve. -Howard Jacobson

The blogosphere makes it possible to have a sprawling national conversation about the hard times – often among people who would never find each other offline. -Adam Cohen

While it may be difficult to get on the front cover of a major magazine, you can create marketing strategies and opportunities by being featured in a popular niche blog. -Lewis Howes

Online leadership is about leveraging digital platforms such as blogs, YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and other networks to build a loyal following of people who want to learn more about and benefit from your experiences and expertise. -Lewis Howes

The process for finding, creating, and consuming information has fundamentally changed with the advent of the web and the rise of blogging. -Ryan Holiday

Public relations and marketing are something companies do to move product. It is not meaningful. It is not cool. Yet because it is cheap, easy, and lucrative to cover, blogs want to convince you that it is. -Ryan Holiday

In 2007, I went to work in Beverly Hills as an intern at The Collective, a talent management agency. I'd been scouted for the job because of a blog I'd started in college and because the blogger-turned-author I worked for, Tucker Max, was producing a project with the company. -Ryan Holiday

The primary occupational hazard of blogging is this: it's easier when you yourself take on some of the traits of insanity. It's a job that requires the doer to be selfish, self-absorbed, and superficial. -Ryan Holiday

I'm hoping I'll eventually get to be a beauty blogger myself because I do my own makeup, and I have for years. -Kat Graham

I follow so many beauty bloggers on Instagram. -Kat Graham

Think both big and small. Loving to bake doesn't only mean becoming a baker. It could mean starting a blog, becoming a food photographer, or going into organic chemistry. -Taylor Jenkins Reid

I write a book a year while creating TV and film projects. And being a writer isn't just writing: I have to chase down paychecks and manage foreign tax payments. I maintain a vibrant relationship with readers and bloggers. And when it comes to Hollywood, I typically have to have fifteen business meetings in the hopes that one leads to a project. -Taylor Jenkins Reid

I think the people who are sitting in their living room doing those, 'Let's take country music back' blogs and all that stuff, that's crazy to me. No one's saying that about rock & roll, and no one sounded like the Beatles since 1960. No one says that about R&B, and no one sounded like the Commodores since 1970. -Darius Rucker

I'm on Twitter, I'm on HuffPo, just any website – you go down a rabbit hole. You start out on HuffPo, then you get a link to this, you get a link to that. Or an article, or a blog. One thing leads to another. -Danielle Schneider

Love making jewelry? Awesome! Find blogs that inspire you, follow people on social media who have great taste, start an Etsy store, and borrow a friend's DSLR to take some beautiful photos of your craft. All of this costs $0. -Alexis Ohanian

You won't be exiled to permanent unemployment just because there's a picture somewhere of you holding a red Solo cup and looking underage. But, your Google results tell a story: Have you been in the news? Authored articles or blog posts? What types of topics do you frequently tweet about? -Kathryn Minshew

One of the very few things that I actually read about myself on blogs that got to me was people saying, 'Ne-Yo doesn't do R&B music anymore.' Just because I stepped off the porch to explore doesn't mean I don't live in that house anymore. -Ne-Yo

One question that often comes up is why, in this age of blogs and tweets and instant digital communication of all kinds, it still takes so long to publish a book. -Erik Larson

I mostly read online – tech/VC blogs. I also enjoy the 'NY Times', 'Atlantic', 'New Yorker'. -Christine Tsai

I'm a tomboy, but I really love doing my makeup – I find it relaxing and grounding. With 'The Daily Show,' it was easier for me to do my own makeup. In the beginning, I watched a lot of YouTube tutorials. You find a beauty blogger who has your skin tone, and pretty much everything they use will look good on you. -Jessica Williams

When I did stand-up at U.C.B., and I had a blog for a couple of years that started my writing career, 'Totally Confident and Completely Insecure,' it was the same kind of self-deprecating humor and stories about being out in L.A. and being treated like a loser at a hair salon because you are not famous. -Erin Foster

I only started uploading on YouTube because I was having trouble one day uploading a video on my blog. -GloZell

The Internet has given us 10 or 15 new styles of communication: long messages like blogging, and then short messages like texting and tweeting. I see it all as part of an expanding array of linguistic possibilities. -David Crystal

I think, when you're doing a column and blogging every day, you get familiar with the sound of your own voice. -Alexandra Petri

For me, blogging is just like talking. -Jared Polis

When I first started blogging, I kept it a secret from my friends and then started to show a few people, and it snowballed from there. -Ella Woodward

I think it's essential to engage with your followers. I always used to email bloggers, and no one ever replied, so I try to reply to every comment and question, and although sometimes I regret it when I'm sat on Instagram til 3 A.M., it's worth it. -Ella Woodward

Blogs are amazing, and I'm so grateful to mine for giving me such a great platform to explore other ideas, but it's just not practical to scroll through 30 pages of blog to find a dinner recipe. -Ella Woodward

It's crazy to think my blog is being read by people around the world. -Ella Woodward

I work out most days, normally first thing, and then I just see where the day takes me. I recipe test most days, do lots of social media and emails, but nothing else is constant. Some days, I film YouTube videos; other days, I have lots of meetings, work on blog posts, brainstorm ideas, and work on upcoming projects. -Ella Woodward

For some, Into The Gloss is just a blog, and that's cool. For us, it's the connective tissue between us and you, and that has paved the way for the creation of a very different kind of beauty brand: Glossier. -Emily Weiss

We could be like a lot of consumer brands that start blogs after they start their business. But in our case, I think Glossier is still very much a content company. I think about our products themselves as pieces of content. -Emily Weiss

There's only so much you can do on a physical level trying to tour or pass out mixtapes. Although that matters, I realized that you can reach more people putting your music on Soundcloud and networking with blogs to write about you. It really comes back to the music and what you release. -G-Eazy

There is much more immediate access to creative music through online communities and blogs which have touched all corners of the music world including contemporary classical. -Bryce Dessner

I wanted to learn how to blog, so I was playing around with WordPress and Typepad and Blogger, starting all these different blogs just to learn how these things work. I had a fake Sergey Brin blog, an anonymous, fake Ph.D kind of blog. I did it for, like, I don't know, six weeks, and the Steve Jobs one just caught on. -Daniel Lyons

My job, originally, was to write blog posts for their 'HubSpot' blog. They have a business model built on content. Then I was writing e-books for them, and after I came back from L.A., they had this new plan to launch a podcast. -Daniel Lyons

The funny thing is that I used to be a blogger, but it wasn't known as 'blogging' at that time. This was in the '99/2000 time frame. -Om Malik

We went from journalism, in newspapers that gets heavily edited, to blogs, where you can express your opinions, to tweeting, where you can say anything, and it gets repeated and becomes fact when it isn't. It's something the entire world is going to have to come to grips with. -Gary Bettman

Today, fashion shows are now blogged and broadcast all over the world via social media. By the time the merchandise ships many months later, the newness and excitement has worn off, and in many cases, the customer has moved on. -Karen Katz

I feel like the menswear blogger is a special breed, and by that, I mean they really have brought menswear out of the closet and into the public discourse where guys are not afraid to talk about style, dressing, clothes. -Nick Wooster

Bloggers and stores and publications and brands and houses all need to sort of take a deep breath and relax because no one is going away. The brands aren't going away. The designers, bloggers, publications aren't going away. -Nick Wooster

I do feel like the blogs that I follow share an aesthetic and draw a lot from '90s influences. -Lauren Jauregui

There were blogs that called me Miss Piggy. It's a really hard thing to see as a teenager, especially when you already have problems. Reading what people had to say about me online definitely made it worse. People can be vicious. -Lauren Alaina

I don't need to be on any micro-blogging site, because people don't think about what they say there. At times, people abuse, and it is too harsh for me to handle. -Allu Arjun

Whatever the motivation of the 'Wall Street Journal' and other right-wing publications, it is clearly long past time for the climate denial scheme to come in from the talk shows and the blogosphere and have to face the kind of an audience that a civil RICO investigation could provide. -Sheldon Whitehouse

Our goal is to put news where it earns attention, where readers can access it on every device and interact with it. We're meeting our clients' audiences where they are instead of asking them to come to us. Increasingly, that means hosting the content on social blogging sites like Medium. -Richard Edelman

When we were doing the launch of Kinect for Xbox, it was very much about getting sort of young blogger-influencer types to try this thing well in advance – a year before launch. -Richard Edelman

Be smart about selecting your micro niches for communicating in the blogosphere. -Richard Edelman

Corporate blogging strategy requires some specialist insight in order to understand tone, the definition of micro-niche leaders, and subjects to cover. -Richard Edelman

I design for social media. My customer reads blogs, is on social media, so I design with contrast in mind. An all-black shirt looks good on the shelf but not online. -Kerby Jean-Raymond

I started my blog when I was a senior in college, and I knew that all the people in my program were probably going to be applying for very similar jobs, so I needed something to separate my resume. -Leandra Medine

I never borrowed money from Mom. I lived at home, but my parents never helped me. I worked hard and moved out. I treated my blog like a business; hard work is important. -Leandra Medine

When you're writing a blog post, you can take solace in knowing that you will immediately know how people will respond to it, and if the criticism is bad, then that's fine because you can work on that and fix it, and if it's good, then that's great because you know what to do in the future. It gets pushed down so quickly. -Leandra Medine

My blog is not about repelling men, it's about good fashion. -Leandra Medine

Technology is a tool, and it's a platform. Nobody gets arrested for being a blogger; people get arrested for dissent. Nobody gets arrested for putting information about themselves online; they get arrested for being an activist. I'm a strong believer in the fact that you should not blame the tools; you should blame the circumstances. -Jared Cohen

With the rise of social media, it has given me an opportunity and a platform to have a voice as a blogger and as an activist, but it has also made me nervous that I might become a meme or a viral sensation, all without my consent. -Sinead Burke

I began as a writer and started blogging in 2001, first on politics, anonymously. -Dana Loesch

I'm a Christian, a wife, a mother, a homeschooler, a conservative, a citizen journalist, a talk radio host, an insatiable music nerd who plays a poor rhythm guitar, a blogger, a proud granddaughter of a sailor, and a proud tea partier in awe of the potential and the people in this movement. -Dana Loesch

I've blogged since 2001 and was first attracted to the medium by its wild-west aesthetic, if simply telling the truth that corporate media wasn't telling could be so rebellious as to be defined as 'wild west.' -Dana Loesch

I got into writing short stories and blogs while on the road. -Coy Bowles

I think Tumblr tends to be – you can get more in-depth with things and more blogging, and Tumblr has been real great for me in terms of research because I have contacts with people from all walks of life all over the globe. -Gail Simone

When I first started blogging, it was about getting out new music and capturing artists working in the studio. This was before artists were so social. They weren't so hands-on then. -Karen Civil

For blogs today, it's really about content creation and partnering with a brand. You can get the news in so many forms and so many places. A tweet now is enough to tell you about a story. People don't have to click to go to your site. -Karen Civil

I was a fly on the wall at Gawker Media during the heyday of this thing called blogging. -Mary Pilon

I don't have much time to read. I'm more of a problem solver. I'll have an idea or a problem, and I'll learn what's necessary in order to do the idea or solve the problem. If I need to read a book, then I will, but it usually comes down to researching on the Internet and reading blog posts. -Alan Schaaf

I don't read literary blogs. I used to read them, but it was upsetting when they would talk, in a snarky way, about my friends. -Andrew Sean Greer

I wake up at 10. I have coffee, and then I spend a half an hour on the computer, where I read newspapers and progressive blogs. I have to tear myself away, or I'll spend all day reading. -Andrew Sean Greer

The cool thing about the Internet now is it's democratized platforms. Like, anybody can create a blog. Anybody can give themselves some type of place where their work is visible. -Luvvie Ajayi

That's one thing brands are understanding is, I'm the blogger who's not writing about fashion. I'm not writing about beauty. I'm not writing about gossip. I'm not writing about politics. I'm writing about all of that. I'm the person they can come to if they just want to reach people who care and have their fingers on pop culture. -Luvvie Ajayi

Fashion blogs are great, but I also take inspiration from movies, nature, everyday objects. -Lisa Hanawalt

I don't tend to write articles and blogs because, I think, if you went into the theatre knowing that this is the writer's view on x, y, and z, it's just game over for the play. -Mike Bartlett

I have non-breaking news for you: FIFA does not care what you think. Over the years, FIFA has never seemed influenced by what is written or said in papers, articles, tweets, blogs, and on television about how it operates. -Julie Foudy

If you know anything about Ethiopia, they are very security conscious, a very closed environment. It's a repressive place were journalists and bloggers are arrested all the time. -Ory Okolloh

I spent a lot of my early blogging career sort of highlighting all the ills of the government in Kenya and all the corruption and problems. -Ory Okolloh

If I were a single person living in a city, I could support myself, but I probably wouldn't have a blog, because I would have nothing to blog about. -Ree Drummond

In many ways, our marriage is anything but traditional. When I started my blog in 2006, Ladd was the only one that really understood what I was doing, probably before I even understood what I was doing. He wasn't tech-savvy, but he just got it and was totally on board with it. -Ree Drummond

It's a different world because of the Internet and bloggers. Now, every editor is concerned about speed because every minute counts. Speed is more important than content. Whoever gets a review out first becomes the authority. -Robert Hilburn

When I started my first blog years ago, I just wanted to share my perspective. For a long time, models had been these mute pretty faces – and I wanted to have a voice. -Coco Rocha

I was the first model to get a blog and talk about anything in modeling. -Coco Rocha

Models can be people, too. But the only way to do that is to kind of step up and keep doing new things that no one has thought of, from new websites to new blogs, a newscast, doing speeches, talking to kids. It kind of opens a new headline every time: 'Oh, a model hasn't done this before; a model hasn't done that before.' -Coco Rocha

A lot of the stuff I blog is either stuff I'm reporting anyway for ABC News internally and figure I might as well put it up on the blog. Or it's stuff I'm just interested in, or I read about it, or I hear about it, and I'm just curious. -Jake Tapper

It's not always easy for a mainstream organization to accept what a blog is. -Jake Tapper

Being on 'House of Cards' really has given me so much more than just a job; the interactions I have had with real White House correspondents, other journalists and bloggers relating to my character Janine – and their thanking me for representing them – has been extraordinary. -Constance Zimmer

I follow a lot of the plus-sized bloggers. -Ashley Nell Tipton

I think that things like Twitter and the blogosphere are so instantaneously critical that I think it's actually created a bit of a culture of artistic fear to branch out too much because you don't want to be slammed. -Josh Groban

My background isn't in social software; it's in online community, social networks, personal publishing, blogging, self-expression on the Web. I got on the Internet in the 1980s, and the magic moment for me arose from my being a literature geek, especially Dante and Shakespeare. -Caterina Fake

I started hearing people say, 'There's a blog about your hair, and there are all of these Tumblr accounts.' I'm like, 'What's Tumblr?' I'm pretty mystified by it, because I look around, and a lot of people have great hair. -Connie Britton

We're understandably worried that staring at screens all day, and blogging about our breakfasts, is turning America into a nation of narcissists. But the opposite might be true. -Pamela Druckerman

I owned a few ladies' apparel brands, and one of my business partners is a very popular blogger in the U.S. -Tan France

I worry about civil-rights activists being targeted as black-identity extremists. I worry about the government saying, 'I don't like this progressive blogger' and subjecting them to scrutiny. -Kevin de Leon

Since developing my blog and YouTube channel in 2013, Little Lights of Mine, I've connected with some of the most passionate people around the world. -Ayesha Curry

I launched Little Lights of Mine because I was a young, 23-year-old new mom. I was home at the time and looking for direction. I started the blog as a place to just share everything. It quickly turned into a food-based blog where I would share all of my favorite recipes. -Ayesha Curry

Every New Year comes with a list of predictions. Self-predictions, world predictions, how many times Lindsay Lohan will get arrested predictions, etc. I reserve the annual trend for people with genuine psychic ability and/or bloggers. -Amanda Seales

While I've never asked my publisher to pull one of my books off the shelves, I have deleted tweets or blog posts that have drawn criticism. -Andrew Shaffer

I'm constantly obsessing about brand. I think of my books in terms of brand. I think of my blog articles in terms of branding. How does it fit my branding? I think in terms of demographics. -Mark Manson

I started my blog back in 2009 because every Internet business and marketing seminar I watched at the time told me I had to. I had been trying to get a business started selling dating and life advice and was struggling. -Mark Manson

I take the time to understand my generation and what they want. Whether it's on Tumblr, Pinterest, or Twitter, I see what they are re-Vining or re-blogging and incorporate it into my YouTube channel. -Eva Gutowski

Every time I perform or sing, I have an 'ah ha' moment. When I look at my blog and people reach out to me anonymously and speak of how I sing and how my music has touched them, it's an 'ah ha' moment. I'm constantly getting that, and I don't want that to ever stop, because it's reassuring me that I'm doing something right. -Luke James

People only see you in blogs, and they think they know everything about your life. -Karrueche Tran

I've tried in the past to blog about ghostwriting and have failed. I have a lot of opinions on the whole issue, and I'm constantly censoring myself to make sure I don't just sound like a bitter writer. -Rebecca Serle

In 2005, I had a blog, where people discussed topics such as a sustainable economy, renewable energy, and broadband coverage. -Beppe Grillo

I started using my blog to get information about cities I was about to visit, asking followers what the main problems there were. Many mentioned misconduct of politicians and other things I wanted to talk about during my shows. Then, before a show in one city, local politicians called saying they would sue if I said something unpleasant. -Beppe Grillo

In the matriarchy, which happens in a little microcosm across the blogosphere, we have these mini 'women in control' societies. And what I've noticed… is, under the guise of empowering women, they end up being real cruel. And I think, 'Jeez, here in my patriarchy, we wouldn't do that.' -Gavin McInnes

It's no secret that the blogosphere is more vicious on women than it is on men. -Meghan McCain

I am often invited to speak at colleges, and whenever I do Q and A's, a question that inevitably comes up is, 'How do you put up with the blogosphere?' It's a valid question, and I don't really know what answer to give. The truth is that I don't know what to do. -Meghan McCain

One of my relatives had been asking me on how he could break into AI. For him to learn AI – deep-learning, technically – a lot of facts exist on the Internet, but it is difficult for someone to go and read the right combination of research papers and find blog posts and YouTube videos and figure out themselves on how to learn deep-learning. -Andrew Ng

BruceLee.com will be the beacon of all things Bruce Lee on the Internet. The site will include everything from facts about Bruce Lee to digital content to merchandise. I'll also be writing a blog. My father's fans have been asking for a place to find information and communicate with each other. This site will be a meeting place for our community. -Shannon Lee

I have been writing my blog for several years. Whenever I have written about pertinent subjects, no one has supported them. For instance, the stray dog menace. I cycle in the morning every day, and I am still scared of stray dog attacks. -Mohanlal

When I have something to say or share with my viewers, I turn to my blog, and even then, I make it clear that it is my take on certain events. -Mohanlal

I read blogs quite a bit. -Satoru Iwata

I delve into cold cases by scouring the Internet for any digital crumbs authorities may have overlooked, then share my theories with the 8,000 or so mystery buffs who visit my blog regularly. -Michelle McNamara

Fashion bloggers will do their work; it's their job. So let them do it. I am not doing something to make them happy or to get friendly with them so that they write good stuff about me. -Huma Qureshi

Social media just plays this massive factor in all of our lives now, and also, the bloggers and influencers are coming in and taking our jobs as models. -Devon Windsor

Every morning, I take a deep breath and then go online to discover what new insult or smear has been thrown in my direction. Whether it's tweets, blogposts or comment threads, the abuse is as relentless as it is vicious. -Mehdi Hasan

When people think about me, that's all they think: 'He's crazy. He's psycho. He's this.' No, that was just my blog; that was Agent Zero; that was my persona that I was putting out there. And eventually, that all caught up with me. -Gilbert Arenas

Only a few bloggers have the audience and credibility to effectively break stories, pressure the traditional media, incubate new ideas, or raise real money. These influential bloggers are usually sharp, opinionated, and focused on the world 'offline.' They refuse to view events through the solipsistic blinders of their own websites. -Ari Melber

Progressive bloggers should not only write on behalf of the members of America's underclass but also empower them to join the discussion. -Ari Melber

The digital component is enormous in not only wrestling but all of entertainment. Every day, you read a new blog or article on Netflix, Hulu, this program and that program. It's where everything is heading. -Jeff Jarrett

The challenges of writing a book are very different from writing a blog or tweets. I've been writing a blog since I was in the 6th grade, so I had this style of writing that was definitely not proper for writing a book. -iJustine

There was kind of a no-nonsense parenting style that my parents had that was true of the time. Everything now… there are books, and there are websites, and there are blogs, and you're reading, and there's research. We're such an interconnected world now, and half the stuff they did was pretty terrible, but we somehow turned out fine. -Adam F. Goldberg

One of my favorite outfits is one I picked up on a trip to Chandigarh. I've worn it once and am skeptical about wearing it again in spite of loving it so much, thanks to the 'fashion police' who won't wait a second to splash it out in the papers or feature me in the 'same to same' blog. -Raveena Tandon

I grew up in San Diego with immigrant parents, before the food blogs, before this kind of celebrity chef culture we know now. -Samin Nosrat
