I have offered (or is it threatened?) to write a Guest Post for AccordingToHoyt as regards kerosene lighting. I keep putting it off as Things Come Up. Some are simple Life Happens and time gets re-allocated to the immediate problem. Some are/were that I keep realizing I don’t have this or that knowledge and experience and I want to write from knowledge and experience and not seem like I’m just… uh… pulling stuff out from under my tail.
I will presume that if you follow The Elegant Ungulate you have read or at least skimmed my… earlier entries… that reveal that I am learning, if slowly (ox slow… is ox nature). But I must be at least approaching if not achieving genuine competence. Thus, the time to “Shut up and put up” is approaching.
I do NOT consider myself an expert by any means. I simply know (just) enough to not do actual damage, or so it seems to me. So, I ask you…
What am I overlooking?
What do I need to learn or experience?
What things do you wish I had looked into?
And if, against all sanity, you figure I already DO know enough to competently write for others on the subject, are there any images/illustrations/photos I desperately nned to include (even if they are photos still in need of taking)?
I am not asking you to write the post. That’s my problem. I am asking, that if you see an obvious mine, perhaps even labelled DUMBASS, that you warn me about it before I step on the damn thing. Thank you.
