Dang yo, I haven’t been blogging regularly.
I might have mentioned this before, but the biggest reason I don’t blog is because I decide I want to edit something before I publish it; a few days later, I’ve lost my train of thought and the draft never makes it to the blog. There’s certainly a lot of stuff to blog about (including: I joined the Tehreek-e-Insaaf recently, and I’ve almost finished my petition to start a library in Islamabad), but I get too caught up in trying to get my writing just right…
That said, I’ve noticed that it doesn’t really matter how much editing I put into a post: I inevitably read it several times after publishing and tinker with it then. So, I’m trying something new right now: I’ve posted a 80%-complete draft on the Nairaing Foundation blog about shadow cabinets. It’s not quite as well-digested as I would like and I think I want to simplify the wording a little and add a proper conclusion, but now that it’s out there, I think I’ll have more of an incentive to fix it.
