Renata Adler once commented that she enjoyed newspaper writing more than magazine writing because every day you were forced to write again to erase the shame of the previous day’s article.
There’s something to that. As a blogger, the faster you continue posting, the faster a piece of drivel descends to the bottom of the screen and then into oblivion (for all but the most tenacious or curious).
But when you’re posting quickly, you’re more likely to either put out more drivel, or scrape the bottom of the barrel. Looking back at this week’s posts, I realize that I posted too many dregs at once. I’m talking about those posts that have been sitting around the “blog” directory on my flash drive for months because I never had the heart to put them up.
So, for the moment, we’re going to come off a 4-times-a-week schedule in the hope that it will promote quality over quantity.
See y’all around.
