Someone commented this on a recent post and it kind of stung:
You already used the “smashing a kid’s toy” analogy about repealing Obamacare. More originality, please.
Yes, when I wrote it I knew I was repeating myself, but I just didn’t have any time to come up with a new analogy and it seemed apropos. Still, I’m a bit sensitive on my posting quality because I can’t really put the time time into blog posting on IMAO that I’d like to. With a full time job and now daddy duties, I really can’t devote more than an hour in the morning to blogging, so I try to do the best with that I can. That’s why I like doing the occasional longer piece for Pajamas Media, because when I get paid directly for a piece it’s a lot easier to justify devoting more time to it — though lately I’ve had trouble even finding time for that. Plus, a passion of mine even before becoming a blogger was to be a novelist, and I’m working to finally get one done and submit it (if some of you read Superego when I did that piece by piece on this blog, I’ve been reworking that into a full novel — there’s only a few sentence left from the original). So, any free writing time I can find, I really want to devote to that.
Anyway, all I’m saying is it’s hard, but I still do my best to blog every day. It’s not always up to my quality standards, but hey, it’s free and it’s there. And I hope to keep doing this until I repeat myself not out of laziness, but senility.
