Two good ideas for blog posts

I came across two great formats, I guess you could call them, for blog posts in the last couple days.

This first one isn’t anything too revolutionary, but it works really well for the blog I found it on. It’s really simple: The blog is called Top 5 and each day it picks a topic (Bikes, for example) and posts five photos that relate to said topic:

Top 5's post on bikes

The idea of the post, of course, is dependent on good content to back it up (in this case—*great* photos).

The second one, from GigaOM, reminded me of the stylized text videos recently explored by Adam Westbrook:

This is just a small sample of the post—do yourself a favor and click through.

Breaking the mold doesn’t stop at print and broadcast. If you want to set yourself apart from the pack and truly distinguish yourself as a journalist or as a source of journalism (or anything for that matter) you have to throw all your rules and comforts out the window.

Don’t be surprised if you see me borrow one or both of these formats on this blog.
