Thoughts on blogging (changes)

Status

Looking at my “online activity” for the past 5 years, I’ve been writing at:

  1. Twitter
  2. WordPress
  3. A Static Blog

Observations

  • Of these, (3) is basically dead, and is around merely as a a personal homepage for now
  • The use of WordPress consists of
    • Monthly curations
    • Periodic life updates
    • Occasional long-form “articles
    • Random one-offs
  • The use of Twitter consists of
    • Likes and re-tweets (duh)
    • Extracts (pics) from either books or online articles

Modifications

  • The static blog remains in its “homepage purgatory”; I don’t have time to migrate that content over, and I don’t have any other plans for it
  • I’ve been bringing “my whole self” to Twitter, but I might reconsider that in the current … er … environment. I’m a self-described “centrist liberal” (I think?) which has been been an un-interesting position for as long as I can remember, but which in the context of current polarizing sentiment amounts to roadkill (so maybe a new pseudonymous account? we’ll see)
  • I’ll consider hiving off a separate WordPress blog that will basically be “my own Twitter”, the same way my current one is “my own Facebook” (wait, isn’t this what Tumblr was supposed to be? Lol, plus ça change …)
  • As mentioned earlier, I’ll try out Medium again, as a “duplicate” for any long-form content
