  4. 4. Blog is the FoundationThe blog is the foundation and center for who you are - either asan individual, or a brand. While I believe the best bloggers in theworld are participating outside of their blog, on Twitter, FriendFeed,Facebook and everywhere else, to only participate in those areasleaves a gaping hole. The world of lifestreaming and real-time isfun, but it can be as deep as a soap opera in a world that stilldemands insightful documentaries and news reporting.http://blog.louisgray.com/2009/06/blogging-is-still-foundation-in-world.html
