Prolific, I am not
So, if you ever read this blog, you may have noticed that I don't blog very frequently. However, I really enjoy writing (which is a good thing since I get paid to do it). I often think about blog entries and roll them over in my head. Unfortunately, a very small percentage of my in-memory blogs ever make it to disk.
In both personal and professional life, I generally attempt to resolve an issue once I realize that there is one. Often, I find that the solution is something fairly small. I decided that the best way for me to blog more frequently was to make it easy.
What could be easier than filling out a web form, you say? Well, considering that I'm often doing web development, closing browsers, launching new browser windows, and so on, a web page really isn't the right option. Also, I don't want some huge blogging client, since bloated IDEs, text editors, XML editors, and Outlook (not to mention my IM client) are all competing for system resources (most notably RAM).
It finally occurred to me that the natural way to encourage me to blog is to have a little client that lives on my desktop. That way, I can blog whenever the urge hits me, without using up too much of my precious RAM. So, I'm trying out a lightweight client called MTClient. It may not be the answer, but at least you're reading this post :-).
