The secret of successful weblogging is – it seems – never to pause for a moment. Never let the fact that you’re kind of not in the mood for a few days to stop you putting some old crap up on your site. Because the longer you leave it, the more pressure there is to make your return worthwhile, valuable, interesting. I am currently backlogged with about three weeks worth of things I feel I need to say – mostly about ETCon, but also about online communities, social software, ConCon and politics – but I know now that I’ll never manage to get most of it out onto the page. Had I not been so self-indulgent about making it perfect, then anything useful I had to say would actually be out there doing some limited good rather than festering in my head. It’s all terribly frustrating.
