I missing blogging.

October 25th, 2009

Like anyone who used to blog with frequency pre-2005, I’d like to post here more often — not just to fill up bits and bytes, but to write again. Remember when blogs were more casual and conversational? Before a post’s purpose was to grab search engine clicks or to promise “99 Answers to Your Problem That We’re Telling You You’re Having”. Yeah. I’d like to get back to that here.Dan Cederholm

This is the idea I’ve been trying to place with again, really starting just this week, rejecting the consensus about how to blog that’s emerged over the last couple years, and holds up Digg-ability and Techcrunch-i-tude as good indicators. Dan, of course, said it better.

It’s probably an indicator of slipping into my dotage, but a new stray link and I’m happily back wandering through those early archives, even my own, having stumbled across a rather odd review of the rather minor Ruled Britannia, circa 2003 earlier this evening.

  1. Oh yeah, a blogging renaissance approaches. I can feel it. And not before time either. Cederholm is right on the nail.

    I hear you. I am missing blogging and trying to move to short posts back on my personal domain (sadly until I move my nearly 2k posts out and onto something new I won’t have comments there). I have grown really tired of the insipid short burst in Twitter and miss working through ideas and sharing things again.

    I miss writing a lot, but I don’t seem to have it in me these days. Part of it was that in my early days, it felt so anonymous for me write, and I was so powered by rage at what has happening in this country. The rage has died down (somewhat), and my online life isn’t as separate from my offline life as it used to be, so I don’t feel as free to write without considering consequences. Plus I get tired of being hacked.

    But I hope you write more.

    P.S. Fun to see Rabble and Gunner and crew this week — sorry it wasn’t in the cards for you to be there.
