I am building up a plethora of posts that are sitting in my draft folder that I will probably never actually publish. They generally fall into two categories: angry rants that are simply stream of conscious things and never intended to post, or posts that I am really trying to share some coherent thoughts and at the end I look back and think “No one would ever want to read that.” And this post probably falls into the latter category, but I’m posting it anyway, dammit.
The real crux here is like Elaine’s dilemma: is this post ….”spongeworthy”? (For the 12 of you who don’t get that…google it. I don’t even like Seinfeld, but it’s a good reference.) I write stuff that is highly technical and would interest NOBODY, or fluff that I’m embarrassed to have published. I’ve got some short stories and things I’ve written that I’ve considered putting up here, too. But, again, it seems to be stuff I’ll hate six months from now.
I really need some good content, though, if this is going to be anything more than a personal diary- ‘more than a tweet, less than a livejournal’ entry doesn’t cut it.
