Well, bad blog posts are better than no blog posts!

With that as my call to arms, I started using Beeminder to encourage me to write some. Beeminder is a service with a delightfully straightforward business model: you set goals, you report progress to Beeminder, and if you achieve your goals, the service is free!

If you don’t, they take your money.

I love the ideas the Internet comes up with.

I discovered Beeminder through Star Slate Codex, my new favorite blog. It says good things about my tribe, and bad things about the other tribes, which is great, and obviously the author is wildly insightful.
