Quantity vs. Quality

Jeff Atwood just posted something on his excellent blog Coding Horror. A blog post! How do he do it? It's amazing!

Self deprecation aside, he has an explanation why he publish so well so often while I fail miserably. Because he has a schedule he follows, posting at least something every n days, while I want to write something really good, before I post something.

And I believe he is right that (focusing on) quantity trumps quality (at least initially). You don't become a better writer by sitting and thinking; you become a better writer by sitting and writing. Although thinking doesn't hurt.

All of which means:

I must write more blog posts!
