reticence

i am hesistant to announce this blog to anyone because then i will feel pressure to update it frequently. i am beginning to suspect however that i will update it frequently regardless.

speaking of hesitance, i hereby advocate that we reserve, and also really preserve, the word "reticent" for verbal hesitance, and not use it for general hesitance. we already have the word "hesitance", and also the word "hesitancy", which means the same thing, so why don't we keep "reticence" as specific as it is?

i am being reticent about this blog. (see how handy that was?)

Well, now you've done it.

You have to update frequently or I'll be upset.
