Dave Winer links to one of his testers timing how long it takes to publish a post using Drummer"less than 9.24 seconds" from hitting the + icon:

"pasted in this sentence, clicked the Publish icon, turned to the browser tab where my blog appears, and refreshed the screen"

Dave says he'd "love to see the same benchmark done with other blogging software."

The same process with (b)log-In takes less than 2 seconds with no need to change tabs or manually refresh. As soon as you hit "post" the change is instant.

Reply to Why Do I Write? | Excursions...

I've written about this a number of times over the years and the crux of it is I just feel the need. Writing is part of me, part of who I am, part of my identity. The translation of thought to word is a powerful thing in any format. Blogging can be immediate, visceral, a direct path from mind to page.

If I step away, I am inexorably drawn back to it, an emptiness grows inside me that only writing in some form can fill.it may take weeks, months, even years, but the call is always there.

While I predominantly write for self (whatever that really means) it is inevitable that I will consider others; it is unavoidable in a social medium such as blogging, especially in an IndieWeb environment built upon the interaction and interrelation of individual sites.

I write to communicate with myself as much as with others, to flesh out my ideas, to aid in the thinking process. But I also write to document my thoughts and actions so that future me might remember or be able to build upon them.
