A lazy writer
I remember once reading or hearing someone, might have been John Gruber, that said, that if you want to be a good writer, you need to be a good reader. Something along those lines.
Well, let me tell you something about myself, I’m a lazy reader, I do not dedicate a lot of my time to reading. I follow many blogs through my RSS and I go through the feed and out of 10 articles I might actually read 2. Not because the other 8 are uninteresting, it might just be that that day, at that time, I was not that invested. Or just my ADHD that makes it hard to concentrate and calmly read something without getting distracted?
I follow many good bloggers and writers and I feel like, in some way, if they are in my feed, I sort of owe it to them (and myself) to make the effort and read it.
Perhaps this is what makes me a lazy writer.
Perhaps it’s time to, rethink my relationship with my RSS feed and pay more attention to which things I stop and read the most and clean up my feed a bit, and stop being a lazy reader.
