This edition of “The Weekend Web” starts with a post by Tristan Higbee of “Blogging Bookshelf”. In his post, Tristan gives you a definitive guide to writing a fantastic analogy post. Then there are two great examples of analogy posts.
Barbara Lings use of video as her analogy for her blog transformation is a fun trip into animation.
John Morrow does an extraordinary job of using a TV sitcom for his analogy.
I love searching the web to bring you the best.

“[This is a loooong post. As a result, I've also made it available as a free downloadable PDF ebook. Right click here to download.]
Life is like a box of chocolate. Writing a book is like carving a jack-o-lantern. Blogging is like deep sea fishing ( <—More on that one later!).
Everyone loves analogies. They’re fun to read, and they make concepts both easier to understand and easier to relate to. You should include analogies in your blogging because they can be a big hit with your readers. See my Newton’s 3 Laws of Blogging post for evidence of that.
So let’s get started!
What is an analogy?”

Life! With coffee! And, ahem, opportunities for extreme frustration, Internet-wise!
I’ll write more about that after I actually free up more than 27 nanoseconds this morning, but suffice it to say, if brutal stress caused massive muscle growth, I’d be *the*definitive winner in the 2011 World Strong Man competition.
Ah…it’s what makes life…..life!
But I digress.

The Mad Men Guide to Changing the World with Words
“Mad Men made writers sexy again.
Donald Draper is dark and moody and mysterious in all the right ways. He’s powerful, able to send staff scurrying from his office with a scowl.
And he’s a creative genius too, lounging on his office couch, sipping whisky, and crafting the perfect slogan to capture the minds of America.
He makes it all look so freaking cool.”
I hope you enjoy this edition of “The Weekend Web”, speedlinking.
