The future of the blog

Lately I’ve been thinking about what I want this blog to be going forward.

Most of my posts are long-form (over 1,000 words), and while I enjoy writing them, they take awhile to complete. And as a result, I can only publish a few posts per month.

Most of you don’t know this, because I don’t advertise it heavily, but I spend a lot of time on my posts. You only see the end product, but I try to be as thoughtful as possible before I publish something on here. This means that I scrap a lot of the stuff that I write. I have dozens of posts that didn’t make it to publication because I just didn’t like them when they were done. There aren’t many of you out there, but I take my posts very seriously, and I do my best to write something that interests me and, hopefully, interests you too.

Since I started the blog 20 months ago, I have written almost 100,000 words on here. It’s been a great outlet for me, and I have no intention of ever stopping.

And so, going forward, I am going to try to post here more often, but with a different flavor. I’d like to post something every weekday, but focus on more short-form posts than long-form posts. Each day, I will write about a game, or a song, or a movie, or a book that I really like. It will be just a few sentences on why it’s important to me, or why I remember it. I am going to start this on Monday.

As always, thanks for reading.
