Blog Envy

I've had this blog for over two years now and I find it really hard coming up with stuff to say. I have no idea who reads this blog, I maintain it mostly because as someone who works in IT I feel like I ought to. For all I know no one out there reads or cares. Not only that I cannot image who might be interested in reading what I have to say.

I envy people like Scott Adams who can generate a blog post every day, a blog post that is funny or interesting. Or Bruce Schneier who somehow manages to post multiple times a day relvant security related information. Or Jeff Atwood who somehow manages to come up with thought provoking articles about computing and software every few days. I realize that each of these people are well known, but I could select less well known people who still manage it. Not to mention those famous people all started out somewhere.

I wonder what the difference between people like them and me. Is it that I have nothing to say? Or is it that I do not know how to say it? Perhaps it is that they believe that people want to hear what they have to say. I guess what I am saying is, I have no idea what makes a good blog. Research mode on.
