Much as I love the convenience of modern blogging, be it livejournal, myspace, blogger, vox or what-have-you, I think I have lost something. Somehow, the work involved in coding (badly) my own html pages encouraged a higher quality of writing as well. I enjoy the minutiae of my life that get recorded in the fast food blogging style, but I miss the obligation to think about what I wrote. I never write stuff like this anymore.
Five years later, that is the sort of thing that resonates most.
