Change in focus: A more day-to-day blog

May 24th, 2009

Hey, what good is a blog if it doesn't get used? For the past few years I've been keeping the posts here limited to things that I think will be interesting or useful to strangers on the internet, and avoiding the sort of posts that will only be interesting to my friends. Well, I'm going to change that.

I was going to write a long, in-depth post explaining why I think this is the right thing to do, but that's part of the problem. (See why in the first bullet-point.)

  • My posting rate has dropped, in part because I'm a perfectionist. Long posts requires a lot of rewrites, and the pile of drafts weighs on me.
  • I now have many friends who I am not in weekly contact with. It makes more sense to blog my life now.
  • I can always section my blog into day-to-day vs. intellectual categories for filtered reading and subscribing if I feel it is becoming too much of a mish-mash.

So, my next post will be about what I am up to this summer.
