I will say that I find as an undergraduate, blogging is daunting. When you’re competing (if I can use that word) for readers’ attention with people like Pat Mccullough, Chris Tilling, Jim West, Mark Goodacre, James Crossley, etc, it’s difficult to have something intelligent and interesting to say on a regular basis when you’re not as well-trained as them.
Ever the stickler for details that I am, I would just point out that James Crossley and Pat McCullough only grace us with their insight once every-so-often. As much as I love both of their blogs, I’d hardly say that they post on a “regular basis.” And Tilling… well, I’m not sure that we can exactly call this “intelligent” although I found it extremely interesting. But the secret to blogging success is not to do what the next man does; that, my friend, is how you compete for readership. It is for that reason that I stick to posting mostly drivel, because let’s face it, no one else does it on a consistent basis, yet surprisingly, people love to read it. And the best part is that doing what I do requires no training! In fact, training would probably just muck it all up.
Think on these things…
