How long can I keep up this pace?

Someone just asked me this question in mail, and he is not the first to ask, either. The whole idea behind the question is an open disbelief that I can maintain the pace of at least one technical post each day that I floated back when I first said Welcome to Sorting It All Out. They assume I will run out of topics eventually.

Of course some people seem to forget that I have the whole world to draw on. And all the stuff I am not an expert on (which is lots), I usually know someone else who is. So I think I can keep going for quite a spell. I assume that people will get sick of listening to me long before I get sick of saying stuff. :-)

And no, this is not the sort of post I count!

And besides, you've been keeping up this pace in some fashion or other pretty much as long as I've known you, and no doubt longer.

# Michael Kaplan on 27 Feb 2005 3:29 PM:

Agreed. Sometimes it is the slowing down that is hard, here!

Someone has to be the guy to challenge Raymond's posting rate, why not you? ;)

# Michael Kaplan on 27 Feb 2005 8:12 PM:

Yikes, I am nowhere near *that* kind of rate. Plus I am way to seat-of-the-pants disorganized to plan out something like that. :-)

Writing seems important to you, I would think that readability would factor into your plan, what's with the html-only format?

# Michael Kaplan on 28 Feb 2005 7:16 AM:

Sean -- I have no idea what you are talking about here -- I am just on a .TEXT blog, publishing articles. What do you mean "HTML" only?

# Sean C Sieger on 28 Feb 2005 6:30 PM:

Michael,

Thanks for responding. The rss reader that I use displays the rest of the Planet XML blogs as text and your one is displayed with the html markup.

Ok, I guess that has to do with the way that it handles shorter posts (http://blogs.msdn.com/ does the same thing for shorter posts).

Weird. It does not happen usually; I guess I just usually talk a lot. :-)
