So that’s the question obviously being posited on this weblog: can I create something worth reading, roughly six days a week? I’ll end up getting behind, but I intend to keep this up until I run out of things to say, subjects to cover. I’ll try not to repeat myself, try not to fall into the typical blog blandness of dropping names of friends who you couldn’t possibly care about. I’ll try and avoid using terms like “lazyweb” and “intarwebs” and “me like” that people who are hip and yet not hip use to show they really don’t care about expressing themselves beyond demanding things of strangers.
Why take on such a possibly punishing schedule? Because I like challenges. Because I obviously like writing. Because I need to get into the habit of writing well, and doing so in volume. I have books to write, essays to write, articles to throw in other directions. I have ideas that need refining.
But most of all, the idea of six days a week of writing without repeating myself scares me. I use fear as an indicator of “good idea”. This doesn’t work with, say, testing the safety of equipment. But it works pretty well for projects. If I sprinkle a little fearful idea here and there, I find the project is better.
Along with this will likely come a little bit of a redesign of some sort. I don’t currently intend to change the white-on-black coloring scheme; there’s just too many complaints from people, whining I don’t look like Everything Else, to just fall for that yet. But maybe I could stand to have some sort of option where you could change the colors for yourself if you’d prefer. The formatting breaks on the page, renders wrong; I should sit down and fix that. I should do a lot of things, and having constant new content will inspire me to try to fix it up for the better.
The fundamental question, of course, is do I really have all that much to say? I honestly don’t know.
I guess I’m going to find out.
