Recently, I went digging through the archives of this blog to locate something I knew had to be there. I didn’t find it, and I suspect that has to do with things getting lost in the conversion from MovableType to WordPress. *sigh*

Anyway, I ended up reading some of the old link round-up posts I made back in the infancy of this blog, and it got me thinking about how much my approach has changed over time. For link blogging, I’ve started using a mix of Delicious bookmarks and Google Reader shared items, and for general “look at this crazy stuff” kinds of things, I use Twitter, FriendFeed, or Facebook.

What’s left for the blog? Well, short reflective pieces like this, for one. And, of course, there’s the conference session summaries and the “what I wrote for Blogcritics” round-ups. Other than that, I am finding that I have things that I want to write about, but I don’t have the time or energy to form them into anything worthy of public consumption.

Honestly, though, the main reason is that I’ve become rather lazy about the care and feeding of this blog. So, for the rest of this month, I’m going to try to write something here at least a few times each week.

  1. I think I understand what you are talking about. With so many different options available, I often have to decide where to put something. Do I post it on Twitter, or do I flesh it out and post it on my blog?

    I also have trouble with commenting on other blogs. I’ll find myself leaving a detailed comment and then I think to myself, “This is pretty good. Maybe I should save this for my blog.” It sounds conceited, but if I manage to write something decent I don’t want it buried in someone’s comment section.

  2. I do the same thing. If my comment goes beyond being just a comment and becomes its own mini-essay, I’ll post it here instead, with a link back to the post that inspired it. Trackback technology is not 100%, but combined with ego searches and alerts, I can keep up with what other people are writing and linking to in relation to this blog.
