Blogging With Brio

I haven't been blogging enough lately. It's not so much that I have nothing to say; it's that I have so much to say that there's no time to just sit down and write it out in a thorough and thoughtful way. I don't want to become another one of those whiny, self-absorbed twentysomething bloggers who can do nothing but vent bitterness in every line they write.

When I first heard about blogs and blogging (via Advogato), I thought to myself, "So it's an online diary. So what?" However, reading stuff by Dave and Doc changed my mind: blogging is richer than that. The ability to link to other sites gives a whole new fullness to a given piece, to the extent that writing without linking should be considered rude.
