Part of me thinks that writing about writing is a little too masturbatory, even for a blog, but then again it's something that I tend to think about when I'm thinking about blogging. If I'm going to go all stream-of-consciousness on you (me?) I might as well toss in everything. Toning down that personal censor is part of the point, at least for me.
Also, because I've never decided about the audience stuff, I can't decide how personal to get. If I'm going to talk about everything that's on my mind, then I probably could never actually attach my name to the thing, which I think I might like to do someday.
