Tested Advice for Bloggers

I’ve been so active on the Comments section that I don’t really feel like writing anything original this week.  Instead, I’m offering this advice from Søren Kierkegaard, which seems appropriate to this modern advance in literature known as “the blog.”  I quote from the Swenson translation of Either/Or, v. 1:

Tested Advice for Authors:  Set down your reflections carelessly, and let them be printed; in correcting the proof sheets a number of good ideas will gradually suggest themselves.  Therefore, take courage, all you who have not yet dared to publish anything; even misprints are not to be despised, and an author who becomes witty by the aid of misprints, must be regarded as having become witty in a perfectly lawful manner.
