As any subscribers (Any subscribers…? Y’all still out there…?!) may have noticed, I’ve been disgustingly irregular about this blogging business. I’m not going to blame that on anything because you all know the classic things people blame when they’re plain butt-lazy. So there we go: I’m butt-lazy. I admit it.
But I do have a legitimate problem.
A few of my last posts haven’t been up to par with my standards, but for the sake of material output, I’ve published them anyway. Only to realize silly and unprofessional grammar/spelling mistakes the proceeding afternoon. Which got me thinking: is it better to publish few but quality posts? Or should one keep up momentum by writing cheesy “filler” posts for the sake of a few new views by the occassional blogosphere pedestrian? Who may or may not be of the opinion that cheesy filler posts are cute and thus become a follower?
Here comes the classic debate between quality and quantity. For most things in life, I’m more of a “quality” person. As in, I’d rather have a tiny cup of fresh artesian coffee than a bottomless jug of crap coffee from London Drugs.
And honestly, I think that should apply to blogging, or writing in general. What you write, you write in stone. As I said in a previous post, writing is what makes us immortal for our words will echo forever into eternity as long as the Latin alphabet persists and .docs are readable. So, wouldn’t you want future readers to see few but awesome glimpses into your experience, rather than tomes of mundanity?
