I love Mark Evans post Why Original Blog Thought is So Difficult. He says:
<liberal plagiarism of Mark's work goes here>
I was just going to quote the whole thing. It would have been a delightful little prod, but the post is so darn long… can you make it shorter the next time, Mark?
In all seriousness, though, his point about having access to a steady stream of new ideas to write about is valid. If you decide you're going to write "news" you'd better have a steady source of fodder or you'll drive yourself mad. To that end, I'll give Skribit a try too. If you've got a topic you'd like to see written up on this blog, use the suggestion box at left. That way when I run out of original thoughts, I can borrow one or two of yours.
