Writing a blog seems fundamentally easy. Find links, and post them, with a summary about what the link contains, and why a reader might want to click on it and read what it has to say. In reality, it’s not as easy as it sounds. What do we include? Will people be interested? Is it original (creating one-of-a-kind content can be hard to do)? Will people understand it?
That last one can sometimes be the most challenging. I know we’ve got readers out there will different levels of knowledge and interest about all things technological. Some people will be interested and understand everything, some won’t understand some of the posts. (I’ll admit that I’ve looked up some stuff before writing a blog entry about a link, either because I didn’t know it, or it helped me understand how to describe what I already knew.)
Because of this, I’m going to try and provide some basic summary information about some of the more complicated posts on the site, for people who want to be able to learn and read more about the subject or topic in the blog. (Look at the next post down, about the particle accelerator, with the basic translaton, and link to a site that makes understanding and learning more easer.)
Everyone should be happier the more they understand. I know I hate getting talked at with random tech I know nothing about. At least if I understand it, it’s a little better.
