Why do you even read this stuff?

God, I write crap. Every so often I look back at what I produce – what I write – what I put out into the public arena – and I’m ashamed of myself. I can’t tell whether it’s because my thoughts are stagnating, or because I’m too stressed to think things through properly, or whether I have got used to using as a braindump rather than as a notepad. But I look back at the kind of writing I’m producing and it’s just awful. Why do any of you people read this stuff? What possible benefit could you get from it?
