Chris Lott said it better than any of us could…

This is a blog.  It is not a peer-reviewed journal, a final archive of our writing, a sponsored publication, or the product of gate keeping and editing. That does mean something… it means that while the ideas and thoughts are often vital and the product of a long gestational period, the writing itself is not. It is essentially as it came from the keyboard: spontaneous, UN-proofed, unrevised, and corrected afterward only when necessary to address mistakes that grossly affect the intent.  (Lott, 2001)
