Yesterday’s post sucked, and that’s OK. I knew it when I published it.
It was a thought that came to me, but it wasn’t a very good thought. It wasn’t a thought worthy of 15 or 30 minutes of writing. It only deserved two minutes of effort, so I only gave it two minutes.
And on the reader’s side, it wasn’t worthy of 5 or 10 minutes of reading. It only deserved 30 seconds of reading, so that’s all it has.
Does that mean it shouldn’t be a post at all? Nah. There’s space for the crappy short blog post. It’s the crappy long blog post that shouldn’t exist.
