life of the party

Had an interesting discussion with a friend of mine. He had just started up his own blog. I asked him how it was going. He said not well. I asked why not. His problem was that he thought he sounded quite boring and whiney. I agreed. I remember feeling the same way when I started up. I found it was easy to avoid that if you just wrote for yourself and didn't try to impress anyone.

I asked him if he would continue. And he said something interesting. He would. He said that over the course of writing the blog he found that he was able to articulate interesting thoughts more easily. I agreed. Writing does have a way of making sure you know what you're talking about and can state your point well.
