ON WEBLOGGING

I seem to be having problems getting motivated to update the site and I believe I've figured out why.

After the redesign, I tried to move away from just "weblogging" and move more towards actually writing something worth reading when I posted. What I found out about myself in the process is that I have a tendency to not post anything unless I have something profound to write about. Well maybe not profound, but at least something that's interesting to read and can last more than two paragraphs.

The downside of this discovery is that the longer I go without posting, the longer I wait until something more profound comes to me to write about, which then creates a feedback loop and an exponentially longer wait between posts.

Another discovered downfall to this is that when people actually comment on the post in the comments (rarely) their attention spans start to collapse after about the third comment and they spiral off into throwing up links to things they've found or just try to one up each other in the game of "who can spout out more non-sequitur bullshit."

I've decided that there's only one conclusion, post a lot more about less profound shit.

Wow, that's almost as profound as the time I found out if I put butter on my penis and let a dog lick it off, it feels almost as good as when I let a homeless man lick it for $2. On top of that, butter is cheaper and dogs can't talk.

is the "submit a quick link" too easy for you to click on?

a little. also, thirty posts in i didn't think it would make that big a difference. also, i didn't think it was signifigant enough for a quick link.

also, there's a profound post coming this weekend about next weekend.

let's call that last bit "foreshadowing".
