Much of the content on this blog is from a multi-year writing assignment. When I graduated high-school, my mother realized that I was somewhat lacking in my communication skills. She challenged me, in the way only mothers can, to write daily.
While a lot of those posts are embarrassingly badly written, or generally self-centered and shallow, I considered them an opportunity to sharpen my skill set. I can now communicate complex ideas from beginning to end, without getting myself horribly off track, and even finish with a compelling conclusion.
And some of these posts just aren’t half bad, either.
