In my last post I opined about a blogging pundit's remark that a good blogger must write a thousand words a day to be effective. I did agree one must blog often enough, but also made mention of extraordinarily meaningful time constraints. There are indeed other things more important. I've since thought that I must add another important facet to the blog-posting-somewhat-more-infrequently-than-every-day position. That is simply that one must take time to actually discover things about which to blog . Certainly sometimes those things require an entire day of plain discovery sans any writing at any time. I thought today I'd add some examples of the things I've been looking at over the past few days. One is an event that happened just yesterday: Rome itself has been overrun by the "Occupy Whichever Powers-That-Be Street There Is" fever. This particular revolt has resulted in some violence, I'm told, so the rebellion is stirring quite nicely it seems.

The only reason I'd consider myself to be relates to another critical aspect of web success, and that is that there must be content. That's what I try to achieve, and I just think slapping 1,000 words on the splendor of today's dog-walking experience is just not worth it. For e
