Home Improvement: Poor Form

The towel rack in the new apartment was falling off the wall a bit. I took it off to fix it, and found that half of it was screwed into the drywall, without any sort of wood behind it. This kind of thing can work sometimes, but in this case it had apparently given out some years before. The previous tenant had tried to repair it by stuffing steel wool into the centimeter-wide ragged holes, and screwing the rack back into the steel wool. Ingenious, but ultimately doomed to failure…

    Hello. I wanted to drop you a quick comment to express my thanks. I’ve been reading your blog for a week or so and have picked up a ton of good information as well as enjoyed the way you’ve setup your blog. I am attempting to run my own blog but I think it’s far too general. I would like to focus more on narrower topics. Being all things to all people is not all that its cracked up to be. Many thanks.

    I must say, as substantially as I enjoyed reading what you had to say, I couldnt help but lose interest after a while. Its as if you had a terrific grasp on the topic matter, but you forgot to include your readers. Perhaps you should think about this from extra than 1 angle. Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so a lot. Its better if you think about what others may have to say instead of just going for a gut reaction to the topic. Think about adjusting your personal believed process and giving others who may read this the benefit of the doubt.
