Regurgitated Writing

Filed under: The Linux Blog News — at 11:39 am on Friday, May 22, 2009

I haven’t written anything recently, mostly because I’ve been reading a lot of other peoples blogs. I’ve wanted to write, but I don’t want to write what you can read else where. For One, its rather annoying to me, when my RSS feeds are stuffed up with the same regurgitated news, so I’d assume its annoying for you guys. The Second reason is I don’t want to waste my time writing something that only a few will read.

Along those lines, I’ve been pretty busy with personal stuff. I do have a ton of ideas for content, I just can’t conceivably write them all. I don’t know maybe my flame is burning out, or perhaps I need another vacation. Anyone want to do some writing?

i have recently stumbled onto the website searching for something, i forget what it was now…
i enjoy the articles, i dont come here for the pictures…;)

I think you should do a few articles for the “in-betweener” in linux.

i often times see the beginer stuff: type in “sudo” or “su” to get root access…
then it goes into the advanced stuff: now you can (insert uber-linux command) to take over the world or hack a gibson and be a networking IT person.

sometimes the learning curve isnt like jumping off of a building or cliff!!

Hey @Masam Thanks!

Guess I don’t think of what I do advanced stuff. I’ll see if I can write some “in-betweener” articles, or at least link to the ones I’ve already written.

I fully and totally understand the drive to write being a guttering lame on a candle. Some days I have 101 article ideas to put on the site. Other days I can’t get up the gumption to check e-mail.

To ‘get around’ this, I have committed to myself of ‘One page a day’. I’m taking this idea from a 2A blog I read. The writer is a professional novelist, so his idea of a page a day is good to me. A page is about 250 words. Bad thing is, by the time I’ve gotten 250 words, I find there I need to say more, usually MUCH more. Usually it is a how-to type of thing, but, occasionally, it is an opinion on someone else’s regurgitation.

Good luck with finding your muse.

So yeah, if I can, I’ll get back to working on the Linux for Newbs column. It’s been a bazillion years, but I almost guarantee you won’t find anything there that’s currently elsewhere.
