Do you jot down ideas and thoughts for blog posts while out and about? I’ve been thinking about blogging, blog design and the web in general over the long weekend here and ended up with a list like this to remind myself of things I want to write about
- Home grown tomatoes
- Vitamin D and sunlight
- My first bedroom posters
- Rearranging furniture
I will elaborate on these cryptic scribblings shortly.
In the meantime, I’ve been inspired by a quote and an interview:
“It is not the critic who counts, not the one who points out how the strong man stumbled or how the doer of deeds might have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred with sweat and dust and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, if he wins, knows the triumph of high achievement; and who, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.” – Roosevelt
Thanks to Joshua Porter for blogging it!
The interview is with Auckland’s mayor John Banks and most of that stuff I never knew about him.
