here are a few simple rules that everybody should adhere to when blogging: All parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are unnecessary. Don't use a foreign word when there's an adequate English coup de maître. Exaggeration is a billion times worse than understatement. Always be more or less specific. Proofread carefully to make sure you haven't any words out. Avoid cliches like the plague - they're old hat. Don't repeat yourself or say again what you have previously said before.
