How do I blog?

· Best Practices

Frank Paynter at Sandhill Trek has been asking people this month how they blog. Cool people. Not me. Which is just as well, because I’d be tempted to make a joke (“very carefully”), or be all literal about software and processes (boring).
I don’t think I have a good answer anyway. It keeps changing. Mostly I notice stuff. I want to talk about it. I don’t have a specific person in mind I want to limit the discussion to, so I choose an appropriate blog and post there. When I see an interesting web page and I have a bookmarklet for an appropriate blog, I dash off some surrounding text and post the link.
Other times I write novels. Dirty novels. Go figure.
