So I want to get blogging more regularly. I'd love for people to actually read my blog. My issue has been frequency; that is the regularity that I post to this thing, just like any other blogger EVER.
The two issues I have with doing something like that is my attention span and my OCD when it comes to facts and research. I think of a topic, I start to write about it, then I second-guess whether or not what I'm saying is right, I double-check information, I look for quotes, I look for exact statistics on B-R, and suddenly a simple blog post becomes a six thousand word opus. And quite frankly, I get tired of writing it. Not really "tired" so much as bored. And if I'm bored of writing it, lord knows you're bored of reading it.
So my goal is to learn how to shut up. Keep it short and to the point. If I'm going to talk about whether or not Russell Martin is having a good season, I might look at his stats real quick like I just did and realize that it's not all that great, and not break out a chart analyzing his monthly splits this season and try to prove it's a combination of injuries and fatigue or whatever the hell is making him bat .240 or whatever he is right now. See that? I don't know the exact number - AND I'M NOT LOOKING IT UP AGAIN! That's the key. We move on.
So that's it. I'm going to try to keep it short for the regular content. The goal is to try to post something every weekday (or at least every other weekday) like my buddy Phenom tried to over at his blog, and the only way I'm going to do that is if I keep them short. Many will be about baseball, but they won't all be. I'll try to get them sorted out all nice. Will the giant opuses (opui?) still show up? Sure. They'll just be in the background churning and possibly appearing, or more likely dying out of lack of interest.
But we've got to keep this thing live. And that starts now.
