Now that my page looks kind of like a “real” blog, I find myself torn between writing more and writing better. Ideally, I’d like to do both. Realistically, I know that if I want to put out high-quality entries like The Elite Members Of The Online Blogosphere (and their groupies know who they are), I would need to sit down and spend quality time on each and every entry. I would basically be writing mini-essays for actual publication, while trying to keep my informal style intact.
It’s harder than it seems. For me, anyway.
On the other hand—shit, no one new is reading this thing. My entire audience consists of Aaron, Amy, Sheryl, Eric, Beth, Dan, and sometimes Amanda, Donna, Kristen, Ellie from SomethingNormal, or a random wanderer following a link from my sig or my old Bosstones page (which, remarkably, still gets hits after at least two years of stagnation).
There’s nobody here to impress. Y’all know me too well. *smirk*
So, once I get used to being all loose and laid-back while typing in a new interface, I’m hoping I’ll be back to my normal blogging self—albeit with a narrower column of text, a different color scheme, and a new backend.
Huh-huh, she said, “back end.” Cool.
P.S. – All of my August 2004 LJ entries are now imported into MT. w00t!
