I’m Not Going To Put Much Thought Into What Goes Here

And neither should you.  I’ve thought about writing a blog before and I always psych myself out.  You can put too much thought into this kind of thing.  I’ve written three or four first posts and not continued with any of them.  People mean well.  They’ll tell you to be distinct, that you need a subject or a point of view.  And if this were a column, I’d agree.  Except it’s not a column, it’s a blog, and that’s now how writing works.

So I’m trying something different.  I do a lot of writing: emails, status updates, fan questions, and a lot of it goes to waste.

Check out this video about scaling yourself by Scott Hanselman.

Part of his premise is that you have a limited number of keystrokes in your life and you should endeavor not to waste them.  So from now on, if I feel the need to share something, a thought or an answer to a question about writing, I’ll try to put it here.

Some of it will be contemporary, as a lot of this ephemeral Internet stuff is.  But the stuff that’s not, the stuff I can use, at least I’ll have a record of.

If that sounds appealing to you, you’re welcome to stick around.  If not, I’ll try to keep the promotion on Facebook and Twitter to a reasonable amount.
