Post and Attitude

I've been thinking a lot on the technologies we use, the way we communicate, and on virtual worlds, real worlds, human interactions.

So why no posts. Well sometimes the reason is the distance between idea and cogent post gets to be a little long, but lately it's been more of an issue of attitude.

As I put it today, I've been feeling my inner snark a bit more lately. Most of my thoughts have been on how things are broken, what I don't like about different services and general complaints. A few negative posts here and there I'll let fly, but I'm hesitant to post when my thoughts seem overly negative.

The down side of this is that if I sit on an idea for too long it gets a bit stale sounding to me, and then I don't post it either. Perhaps I'm overly concerned with the balance and that it will all even out in the end.

So what do you think about negative posting?

*I* think you should post everything that comes to mind, and that will get the negative stuff written down and out of the way, so you can get on to the positive stuff. But maybe that's just me. :)

I think blogging wouldn't be much fun if you had to worry about that kind of thing. That being said, readers would definetly be turned off by a lot of negativity. Are you in it for yourself or for the readership?
