Switching routines is tough. Switching blogs is tough too. Familiarity, even with mediocrity - well, there's something to be said for that.
I tried to switch to Tumblr, and then to Wordpress, and I lost my mojo / rhythms. I have returned reluctantly home with my tail between my legs.
Writing blogs in 2011 is tough, because there's basically so much content out there. Compare nowadays to the 1980's and before, when seeing your name next to something you wrote was a huge accomplishment that 99% of the population never saw. Now, everyone is a publisher. The bar has been set so very low, that quality is no longer synonymous with publishing, is no longer assumed to exist on the net at all. There's a wading that's requiring - a sifting through the bad and, rarely, the good.
This post can be counted as among the more pedestrian blog posts out there. By using the word pedestrian, however, I can convince myself that it's of higher quality than it actually is.
