Less than two weeks in, and I’m already struggling with posting.
I don’t mean finding enough stuff to talk about or keeping to a regular schedule–I expected that stuff would be easy for the first little bit, while this “blogging” business is still novel to me. No, instead I’m struggling with exactly what I should bother to link and not link. I spend a good chunk of time each day on the web (as do many of you, I would guess). In that time, I find stuff that I assume would be of interest to friends; I also assume, however, that those same friends have most likely already found the same interesting stuff.
I don’t know how I’m to tell if I’m wasting my time and yours times by posting stuff here. I don’t have any secret sources of information: just what crops up on Slashdot, Boing Boing, and the like. I’ve also been told that blogs are “supposed to have a focus” (?). For all these reasons, I’m going to try and err on the side of caution, resisting urges to post daily links. That’s still no guarantee that the few things I do post will be relevant to you, but at least I won’t feel as bad as I would if I were posting tripe every day.
Man, this just a horrible ramble because I am shy about my bookmarks. I am not a good blogger. I am not a good blogger to the max.
