Blogs are Essays, Dang It.

I deleted all of my posts so far in 2009. I had not taken the time to articulate my ideas clearly in those posts. This blog (the whole idea of blogs to be honest) keeps saying, "Hey! Go ahead and post your thoughts whatever they may be! It's the web! It's two point oh!!! It's OK that they are only half baked!"

But it's not.

A blog is an essay.

Just as homeowners who find a designer on Craigslist still expect the services of a professional architect even though they aren't willing to pay for one, so do I expect a fully tuned essay from a blog.
