What it doesn't do is engender much exchange. Maybe that's not possible when the boss blogs, but it should be. Anonymous posts are welcome, after all.
What I'd like is recognition that I'm not sure about everything I post here, that I need your ideas and refinements, that we're all kind of making this up as we go.
This parenthetical note from a blog called Confused of Calcutta expresses what I'm after precisely:
[I’m not sure I’ve got it now. But then that’s what makes blogging so valuable. I can stick something out here and invite comment, watch you improve on it or cut it to shreds or even do both — at the same time — without getting hung up about it.]
(The post it's from is fascinating, too.)
