Jim, Aaron, and Rand aren’t the only people pondering the question of blog subject limitations. I’ve been wrestling with it for a long time, not only in relation to my blog, but for the forums I’m an administrator for. Did I dare, for example, write about September 11 to an International readership? Not all of them care. Truly, I debated with writing for a few hours, posted on my forums, and waited again, because I was worried about writing hereRead more…

Blogging is like sex. Sometimes things are going just perfectly and it’s all you can think of and want to do. Other times, it’s this gigantic weight hanging over your head and you feel guilty if you can’t find time to do it. The art of blogging fascinates me. Techniques change.
