I haven’t written in a loooong time. Mostly because I don’t really know what to write about here any more.
This blog used to be a lot about libraries and other information-y topics. But I’m no longer in library school, I don’t work in a library, and I blog about the things I do professionally (web analytics) at my company blog.
So I’ve sort of been stuck, unsure what to do with this space. A redesign is tempting, but that’s really just a way to play with PHP templates instead of actually producing something. Lots of changes have also happened for me over the last few months, which is something in the way of an excuse for not writing. I’ve been in the same kind of place Merlin Mann describes about his blog. And, in his terminology, I need to give myself permission to “drive around the buffalo” — that is, just forget about what it’s all “supposed” to be and start writing stuff.
So that’s what I’m going to do. What will I post here? I’m not sure. Essays, fiction, I’ve got some stuff that could go here, just hasn’t because it didn’t seem to fit right. But, to hell with “fit.” I’m just going to do it and see what happens.
