Railing against ourselves

Webloggers are getting all self-reflective (and I guess that includes me now). Dennis Mahoney writes that "I was spending time thinking about branding and mission statements for my personal site, when I should have been writing about lighthouses."

My opinion is that what makes Web sites valuable is interesting content, whether text, pictures, movies, sounds, whatever. What it means is interesting to you, if you have a site. No trick to it. Just do what you like, and try to be good at it by whatever standards you use. Even if I talk about the same stuff as a whole bunch of other people (and so what?), that's what I try to do here.

Why do I do it? That's complicated. Whatever.
