I am pondering the direction of the blog. On the one hand, I want to have a well thought out essay, interview, or article once a week on Sundays. I have much to learn from the act of having a weekly publication that I hold to a high standard. That is going to happen. On the other hand, a well thought out essay usually takes some time and rigor. I either don’t want to put that into my everyday posts, or I don’t want to attempt to make quick little everyday posts.
I expect the first few months to be full of navel gazing, and that is going to make for a terrible blog that attempts to run alongside a weekly editorial. However, it may be more useful in the long term to go though those motions publicly rather than privately.
Krugman has a blog and weekly editorial. I think that is what I should be going for. Let the blog flounder, make sure the essays are as strong as your can make them. Keep putting words on page. One step at a time.
