I have been going hammer and tongs at an idea lately, and it just isn't panning out well. I keep tripping over the "what-ifs" and they keep it from being ready to post.
More and more, I am getting jealous of folks like John Michael Greer, Jim Kunstler, or Dmitri Orlov, who seem to be able to deliver thoughtful and internally consistent posts on a routine basis. At best, I do OK, but their stuff always seem to shine.
While having this soapbox is a great thing, it also reminds me what hard work sitting down and writing well is. I think that it would have to be exhausting. Best I can do is hope for a batting average that would better fit a journeyman utility infielder.
Much of blogoland is some pretty low quality stuff, myself included. I think that we should applaud the good ones more than what we do currently.
