I was passed a copy of an old Malcolm Gladwell article and that made me wonder if any of his stuff was online. On The M Show I’ve talked about his books The Tipping Point and Blink, which are both very interesting, but I’ve found his New Yorker articles the most fascinating.

Lo and behold, his has all of them (or at least a bunch of them) posted on his website!

He also has a blog up there that hasn’t been updated in a while, including this very interesting post on Freakonomics.

It’s interesting to note that all of the posts have tons of comments – it makes me wonder – once you are being paid professionally to write is there any reason to blog other than to promote your current book, or test ideas for the next one?

One reply on “Goldmine”

Isn’t blogging the same as writing? 🙂

As I started blogging as an entre into writing, I would still see myself blogging – not everything would be extensive for a book. And yes, it could be a place to test ideas.
