I hate blog posts that sound like they might be educational, but end up being nothing more than attempts to get conversation going. That strategy is welcome in a forum, I do it myself all the time. But blogs should be an offering of knowledge, opinion, or just interesting thoughts, not a plea for readers to supply same.

Here's an example: Do You Really Need Photoshop?

It has a great title, and got linked from another blog (the point, I expect). But the title question is all there is. No exploration, not even an opinion, just begging for you to supply the content for what may or may not end up being an interesting page days or weeks from now.

It would be a great forum post, but as a blog entry it's a cheat and a sham.

Feel free to post your own opinion here, but realize that your comments are not the reason I made this post. That's the difference.
