This past weeks I did more Engineering work and less blogging. Blogging helped me realize that (among other things) I am more of an engineering geek, and not a reporter. So I will not stop it; but simply won’t force myself to do it everyday.

Some of the things I discovered this past weeks are:

I am not Marc Andreessen (yet)

Maybe, someday, I will be in the position Marc Andreessen is today and, like him, write enough posts to make a blog like blog.pmarca.com one of the top (it is now in my Blogroll), in less than a month.

Marc doesn’t need to explain why he can talk about Venture Capitalists, productivity, programming, and startups. All the topics I love… but who am I to say I “know”. Right?

So, in the mean time, back to real geeking, and a little weekly blogging. Later, who knows.

Writing in English is hard

It is hard to write. But to write in English when it is not your natural language is a huge effort. Blogging is great for practicing English, but not efficient, thus it becomes a disadvantage to make your blogging “competitive”. Anyway, I am pleased that most of the readers responding to the poll think that my English is Exxelent! I will work hard to not disappoint you!

This geek is not for the masses

To reach massive traffic to any particular website is hard work. To reach massive traffic to an unknown geek is harder. Focus is always needed for any successful venue. If you are not willing to focus on blogging, you better not waste much time with it.
