For some reason I just can’t write one line blog posts. Dave “Mr. RSS” Winer does it real well. Very good for reading the RSS feed from his site. Catching up on his numerous entries is a rather quick affair. Not me. I just gotaâ€™ write long rambling paragraphs. Because of my notoriously bad spelling I obsess on checking what I write. Correcting grammar when I can, proper word use (like their or there in the correct place), and spell check like mad. But still the errors make their way in. I just correct them later and don’t tell anyone. 😀
I read somewhere that the most read commercial blogs have SEVERAL posts per day. My personal favorite of the multiple entries per day blogs is the MAKE blog written by Phillip Torrone. I’m a serious junky for stories about DIY (Do It Yourself) projects. [There basically howt-tos made by people giving you detailed instructions on well… how to do something.] I day dream about making everything myself. I sometimes wish I could clone myself and set about all of these copies to making shit. Man, if I ever retire (long ways away) I will be one DIY grandpa. 😉
So should I write more posts per day? I’m not trying to make money directly off of this dot org blog…so why should I? Guilt is one factor. I honestly feel guilty if I don’t get something written down daily. Addiction is another factor. Yep, I’m addicted to this. It’s obvious huh. Here I am writing about writing. That’s what artist do. [Damn I’m so sick of people complaining that all bloggers do is write about blogging. INTROSPECTION IS GOOD DAMN IT!] 🙂
The real question is will more people read this blog if I write more posts?
