Hi Steven,

I was going to agree with you wholeheartedly and got half way through my
reply before I realised that I do in fact believe that there is a key
ingredient to all web sites (and maybe blogs too): forethought.

It's usually pretty easy to recognise a site that has been put together
without any thought, and I think you'll find that good web sites have
forethought in spades.  People don't plan to fail, they just fail to plan.

OK, shoot me down...  ;-)
