I'm writing here because I have something to say, and an irresistible urge to say it. From what I've read, this is the only legitimate excuse for having the temerity to put words to "paper".
I don't have ads, I don't take donations, no one pays me for writing. I see nothing wrong with doing so, it's just not me. I can afford to write because I have a job I'm very good at and an employer who gives me considerable flexibility. (It doesn't hurt that I'm a part owner of the company.)
I have a lot to say; I think I could manage two substantive posts a day for the foreseeable future. But while I have flexibility, I don't have unlimited license. In short, I need to get back to work.
So I'm going to go on a disciplined schedule for the blog. Barring the unforeseen, I'll make substantive posts every Wednesday and Sunday morning (California time). Between substantive posts, I'll try and publish a quickie or two every day, at least a summary of the interesting things I've read that morning.
