Comments on "On Blogging"

Word.

Though as a blog, it is also "meant" to be whatever you mean it to be, whether that's something spontaneous or a polished product more in line with your antiquated notions. It's up to you to do with it whatever feels right to you, so the trick is to figure out what feels right, and then find a way to make it so. (And I bet that is analogous to many other areas of your life, too.)

Very true, but the conflict is an internal one; it's not that I feel beholden to externally imposed models of blogging -- I'd like to shoot from the hip and have more out there. I'd like to relax my internal editor. It's not so much my notions which are antiquated, as my inhibitions.

Maybe you should spend a month twittering. Then you'd see the blog postings whose imprecision currently bothers you as suddenly representing the epitome of polish and depth. I'm not entirely unserious here.

WHY ARE YOU BLOGGING WHEN YOU SHOULD BE WRITING YOUR IMPERFECT, INCOMPLETE, INARTICULATE INTO YOUR NOVEL? HMMMM???

imperfect, incomplete, inarticulate sentences, that is. Case in point.

I think what Jackie meant to say is WHY ARE YOU SITTING IN A BAR TALKING WITH MOLES ABOUT SUPERHEROES WHEN YOU SHOULD BE BLOGGING?

Now if we'd just thought to tape it on our cellphones, we could have posted a transcript.
