The only successful blog I have is my Twitter account. I have found 140 characters is enough for my brain to compose a coherent message and then have my fingers hurriedly type it out before my 3 seconds of active memory loops again. Why then, that when Brandon mentioned that he was starting up his Blogging Agreement again, did I agree? Am I a masochist? Do I like watching myself fail? Or did I have nothing better to do? Probably a little from column A, B and C.
The agreement whittles down to this:
When anyone adds a new post to their blog, above and beyond whatever post debt they may have accrued, all others will endeavor to update their blog within 24 hours of the initial post. Auto-generated posts pulling from twitter do not count towards the agreement. Leniency will be provided in case something comes up of course, but try to do your best to be prompt. Failure to update without good reason may result in us calling you names or insulting your mother. You have been warned.
