I installed the Performancing Firefox extension the other day, which lets me update any of my blogs with a simple, straightforward interface right in Firefox without having to navigate to the update page and log in and stuff. It makes posting much simpler, so I'm doing it more often, both here and at ryanfreebernorg, my other personal blog. I highly recommend it if you're running Firefox 1.5.

I have also been posting more frequently because I've decided to stop censoring myself so much. Often, I would find myself thinking that maybe I'd post about something, but then thinking "Enh, why bother?" and not doing it. Arguably, this greatly improved my signal-to-noise ratio, but I think more often than not it would just end up leaving my blogs silent for weeks at a time, which didn't make me very happy. I would get myself into a bit of a funk, thinking that nobody could possibly care about what I wrote, so I wouldn't write anything. (I know some people do care -- hi jeaniek! -- but that wasn't enough to motivate me, for some reason.)

So anyway, here's to me remaining motivated. This isn't a New Year's Resolution or anything, just me trying a bit harder.

i feel like that a lot too. i don't know how many times i've typed something out then thought, "who would want to read this?" and deleted it. but i came to the same conclusion as you, and now you have lovely entries like my toothbrush review hehe

i'm looking forward to hearing from you more

Hooray for dental hygiene accessories!

I realized after I posted this that another part of my problem was that I'd come up with an opinion about something, and think about writing it, and then realize that undoubtedly, someone else has had that opinion and has expressed it more eloquently than I can, so shouldn't I just let that person do the talking?

But from now on, I'll just post. :)

I should comment more -- I'm really enjoying your Stuff blog. and I shop from it! I bought some of the Sinus Blaster for David. "Holy CHRIST that is strong" was his reaction.

Yeah, I've got a bottle of it too. Man oh man, the first time I tried it, it nearly knocked me over. It's great when I'm really congested, though, because it definitely feels like it's doing something.

I'm glad you're liking JWIW. It's a challenge to keep up with it, but so far it seems worth it. I get comments and emails every now and then from people who appreciate the ideas I post, and that makes me happy.
