Blogs should be written – and probably are written mostly – by manic people. They’re not the ones who read them though: they lack the attention span. They jump all over the place. So my blog is mainly intended for the benignly depressed. An added advantage is they tend to blame themselves and not me when they don’t get it.
Some alternate between these states and are both: to them my advise is obvious: read when depressed, write when manic.
