Halfway through my "post every (week-) day" experiment seems a good time to draw some preliminary conclusions. First, I am capable of pumping out some verbiage every day; whether it serves any purpose to expose it to public view remains an open question. Second, the exercise does make me aware that there are certain topics that I can and should be writing about. But third, the commitment to producing something every day means that much of the material that gets posted hasn't received the degree of analysis and development that it should. Perhaps I could be using the blog as a sort of public scratchpad for generating and refining text that will later be used or published elsewhere.
