Posts should stand on their own

I wrote this to work something out, which is why it’s a bit meandering.

I repeatedly don’t write a blog post because I’d have to write a different one first: I don’t write about an improvement to X because I haven’t written about X or I don’t talk about a funding bid because I haven’t introduced the project ‘properly’.

That’s because I want the whole blog to work as one thing: I want it to be readable from front to back and make sense.

This is silly.  My favourite authors re-introduce characters in every novel, expand throwaway lines, or just retell stories in a new way.

So how I can avoid it? Being aware that’s what is happening will be a start, but I should write like the post stands on it’s own – like it’s always for a new reader.
