Well, most of you don't. There are already more blogs than there are readers of them. Blogging is an exercise in ego gratification, for the most part, that thrives to the extent that one can generate response to one's posts.
Coming up with something every day that is worthy of being published is either damn near impossible or quite easy, depending on the publisher's estimation of "worthiness." Mike's bar is obviously higher than mine.
I think an online discussion is the goal for the Forum, with the possibility that some people may be influenced to see things a bit more like I see them. Sometimes I am able to see things a bit more like someone else sees them, but someone has to present an argument that his way is better before I can be swayed.
Neither Mike nor I have the resources (time, money) to pursue much investigative reportage, the practice of which has launched some blogs into the stratosphere, and which I would really like to do. So I'm limited to commenting on stuff I see online, on TV, or in a book or magazine that strikes me as interesting.
It'd be nice to have some suggestions on what you think Mike and I do well and what you wish we'd quit doing (which we can then defend as being necessary to survival of the Republic).
