I think the problem is this: a blog is, by definition, self-aggrandizing. "My thoughts are fascinating! I simply must put them out on the Internet for the consumption of acquaintances and absolute strangers!" There are exceptions, of course -- the White House has a blog, which is just informational -- but on the whole, we bloggers are just shouting into the ether for one reason or another. For me, the prospect of cyber-passers-by paying attention isn't the point, but it still feels awfully conceited to think that the things taking up valuable space in my head ought to be shared. It chafes my ingrained [Midwestern] humility. Horrors!
My point is, this challenge is starting to actually feel like a challenge for any number of reasons. This is day 26 of 365, and I'm starting to think I'm going to have to start picking up some more hobbies if I'm going to fill this corner of the web for another 339 days.
In conclusion, Don Draper.
