Justifying posts

This month I have an experimental technique to improve the focus of my blogging. Posts should have a justification property, in which I justify the reason for the existence of the post. Typically this will refer back to one of my targets for the month. An example:

justification: "I said I would learn how NAT works. It's a basic internet concept which comes up all the time at work. It's essential for understanding parts of WebRTC."

The justification property will appear at the bottom of the post, like this:

I wrote this post because I said I would learn how NAT works. It’s a basic internet concept which comes up all the time at work. It’s essential for understanding parts of WebRTC.

I won’t require the justification property. If it’s missing, it’ll say

I wrote this post because I felt like it.

It’s important that this technique does not turn into self-shaming. If I want to write an off-the-wall post, I will. I jut hope this technique will provide a little extra focus.
