"I am a real late-bloomer when it comes to blogging. My biggest problem in past attempts (as I mention in my Productivity column) was how I considered my entries: wastes of a day. I'd spend the day writing, posting, editing, and then tweaking, until finally the entry was done. Then I'd look at the clock and realize with a bit of sadness the day itself was done.
When I decided to try blogging a third time, I pledged to apply the right disciplines: Keep posts close to 1000 words, proof (and proof again) before posting, and finally spend no longer than three hours on a single post."
