I find these numbers interesting, but mostly irrelevant. I don't really care what those numbers look like. I'm primarily motived by these three objectives:
- To challenge myself to keep tackling new problems and learning new things and evaluating the things I have done
- To get in touch with people outside my little company who have different viewpoints and different experiences
- To keep an archive so I can lookup things I've figured out or thought about in the past or so I can refer other people to them
I have one person who posts here regularly (thanks Josh!). Frequently he just says "duh" or "I've seen it slightly different" but I love that. It tells me other people have been through it. I'm not looking for expert comments, after all, I'm no expert. But I would really love to hear more of what people think, even if its just a gut reaction.
1. What can I do to draw more comments?
I write about things I'm interested in or working on. That's why the topics range so widely and randomly. I also try to write when I'm confident that I've come to a resolution. That's why what I write is less like a blog and more like little essays or articles. I also write as if what I'm saying is true, even when I know I could be wrong or when I haven't had a chance to exercise the ideas much. I find second guessing and apologizing in writing to be really irritating and I assume you'll do the second guessing on your own as you read.
2. Should I change anything about the topics or style?
I write when I have something to say. I shoot for 4 posts a month (but not necessarily one a week). Other than that I don't keep a schedule. I do this because I don't want to publish half formed thoughts or minor mostly content-less topics. But I've read lots of people who say you should post on a regular schedule.
3. Should I adopt a schedule?
I write this stuff for fun mainly. But it would be more fun if it was less one sided.
4. Do you have any feedback, or is it all perfect just the way it is?
