I find I am starting a web log using the opportunity offered by WordPress.com. From looking around about me at the works of others, I find I must question the entire enterprise. Who might want to read it? I have to admit that I wish to write it for its own sake; it is questionable whether or not it will attract any sort of audience. All the same, when one writes, an audience should always be assumed.
Thus I would like to address my failings in previous attempt to express my Polite Observations by making unto the public the following commitments:
- To write frequently, but more important, currently
- Never to waste the public’s time nor patience posting entries apologizing for or excusing my having not written for a great while
- To study upon what I write, and to cite whence my information has been obtained
- Finally, to attempt mutual understanding by attempting to shed light on various subjects, and not simply to generate heat
