Blogging is hard.

I've had blogs before -- the kind where I imagined people wanted to read about me doing my laundry, or the cat's latest biological nonconformity. When I started this one, I decided I'd try to keep the value a bit higher, and only post things that I'd thought through, and proofread a couple times. So far I've done that.

But damn, it turns out blogging is harder than I thought. I just re-read a couple of my most recent posts, and while I'm not unhappy with them, I am not really satisfied with them, either.

I think they're still a bit too long and rambling. The message is in there, but you have to work to find it. This is after what I thought of as an aggressive editing cycle. I think I need to amp it up a notch, and go from aggressive to brutal.

Ah, like everything else, you just gotta ease yourself into it.

Just write to express yourself and your feelings toward a particular issue at hand. Don't be concerned with what others think, but get it out.

Your prior post was pretty easy to read.

Give examples. Show pictures/diagrams. This can be filled with some pretty good perspective.

Good luck, and stay motivated.
