I have a confession to make about this blog: I draft nearly all of my entries.
No one else I know does this. You keep a personal blog to write what's on your mind - spontaneous, free-from, uninhibited. You don't worry too much about composition.
That said, I can't write this way, especially knowing other people will read my posts. Because I'm an English major, I always have elements of craft in mind: I like my posts to have a clear beginning, middle, and end, a tidy structure, maybe a nifty framing device. As a result, I'm constantly editing and re-editing, and sometimes my posts are saved as drafts for days before I publish them.
So here's a question for my fellow bloggers: are you of the stream-of-conscious school of blogging, an anything-goes sort of attitude? Or are you like me and think about such technicalities as structural repetition when you blog? What's your style? What do you like reading more?
By the way, I've gone through and revised some of my old posts. In case you're interested, or maybe just bored, here are a few of my favorites: one that I thought was funny, some that I found thoughtful (here and here), and another that used a recurring image, like what they teach me in composition. ;-) Oh, and this may be my best-written post.
Thanks again for reading, and as always I appreciate the comments you guys leave me!
