Someone's blog got linked from slashdot today, and I was reading some of his older blog entries, and came across this one:
I know I haven't been posting. Would you like to hear about this brown/orange breasted sparrow or sunbird I see everyday when I go into work? I like the way he shoots itself like a rocket to the tree branch from the fence as soon as I get closer. Haven't seen him in the past week. You didn't like that, did you?

I thought this was interesting, because:

  1. I feel like this a lot. I certainly don't find the everyday minutiae of my life interesting, so why would anybody else?
  2. The sparrow bit actually was interesting. Why? I'm not sure, but I thought it was cool.

On the other hand, I do see quite a lot of blog material that is mind-numbingly dull and self-involved. Fear of writing that kind of crap is why my blog is as sparse as it is.

I know, one of these days I actually have to stop blogging about blogging, but as it happens I'm still stuck in this stage where I have to be thinking about blogging in order to blog.
