<content type="html"><![CDATA[<p>I’ve been thinking for a while that I want to start blogging again. For a while, I had grand ambitions of writing my own <em>super-awesome-cool-foobar</em> app for it. Then I realized that grand ambitions led to me putting it off more and more.</p>
<p>What to do??? - <a href="http://octopress.org/">Octopress</a></p>

<p>The only way I can make mistakes, and even fail, is to do. Using Octopress may not be exactly what I envisioned, but it is progress; it gets my hands dirty. That was also the motivation to creating and publishing <a href="https://github.com/jredville/lambdas">lambdas</a>: dirty hands.<sup id="fnref:1"><a href="#fn:1" rel="footnote">1</a></sup></p>
<p>I think ultimately, I’m getting better at realizing that everything is a draft<sup id="fnref:2"><a href="#fn:2" rel="footnote">2</a></sup>, and only by making progress can I hope to ever see it approach my ideals. Like lambdas, this blog will need work: content, theme, and a more coherent structure just to start. However, also like lambdas, the only way to get there is to get my hands dirty.</p>
