There are some kinds of news that you wish you could just whisper. It might be the most exciting thing in the whole world, maybe a huge personal achievement. But that's it: when it's personal, 500 words just don't seem adequate. I wish I could just whisper to you, "Hey, wanna see this thing I did?" And then I would like to hover over your shoulder creepily and watch your reaction to see what makes sense to you and what doesn't, what you like and what you don't. But hitting the publish button, releasing this beast to the world, sitting back, and just waiting? Ugh...radio silence. It's terrifying.
