In Search of The Lost Blog Post

Last night I dreamed about a perfect blog post. In my dream, I was thinking to myself what a wonderful blog post! Surely, it will be one of my best. It made perfect sense. It was witty. It was timely. It was so good. Then I woke up. I remembered that I was dreaming of …
