People and Blogging Tools

Will Pate says that people are more important than tools. It’s a great post. Everyone should go read it.

But the point that Matt makes in his comment to my Blogging Tools Suck post or that Brad is making in the post about his wife Amy starting to blog is that the tools are inhibiting the average person from blogging.

The Gotham Gal’s been blogging since her birthday last October. She’s a good blogger. But there is so much she doesn’t have on her blog because she doesn’t know how or care to find out how to do it. That limits the conversation as Will Pate puts it. And that’s bad.
