Mark Twain

They're just words. Edit your blog posts ruthlessly.

It's tough when you're writing a blog post and you've been working on it a long time, and you suddenly realize that what you've been writing is garbage. Maybe it's not the whole post. Maybe it's just a paragraph or two. But it stinks. What do you do? Do you leave it in and hope no one else notices? Do you try to massage the words a bit? Do you forget the entire article and go watch a movie instead?
