Blogging With Atom

I've entered a weird phase of this blog. One in which I'm not updating it nearly as much as I would like. The easy answer why is that I don't have a part of my day dedicated to writing anymore. Three years ago I had a long commute into work, and it was during that commute that I…

Blog Posts vs Articles

I've long struggled with what content I should write for this blog. I enjoy writing about technology and programming, but I also enjoy writing about my personal life and other interests of mine. I've long known that there are two key parts to writing a successful blog: publish…

Long Form and Short Form, Where do they belong?

Warning: what follows rambles and has no real point except to think aloud. Read at your own indulgance. So here's a new idea that's isn't new. Right now I have my blog. On there I write long form pieces. Things that take up more time than reading a handful of tweets. I've always…

Permalink Structure Update

I've just updated the permalink structure of the URLs for this blog. Previously I was using the 'month and name' configuration for each post, i.e. this post would be "/2012/05/post-name". My main problem with this structure was the impersonal tone it set for each post…

Blogging Is Harder Than You Think

When I began to blog I wasn't aware of the challenges I would be facing. ’So many people blog all the time, it can't be that hard!’. I could not have been more wrong. The first (non) challenge of blogging is what software or service to use. The most popular choices are WordPress…

What Happens When I Don't Post?

This is the first time in two years that I have gone more than a week without a blog post. On one hand I feel very shitty about this. I feel like I should be beating myself up for not being more proactive in writing a post. On the other hand I feel quite liberated. I think I…

Blogging In 2011: A Year In Review

This is my year in review blog post, and oh what an exciting blog post it's going to be! 2011 was a good year of blogging for me. I managed to kick my addiction of compulsively checking Google Analytics to see how many hits I was getting and instead was able to focus more on…

On Writing And Blogging Healthily

When is there time to think? Or rather, when is there time to write? When all the hours of the day are spent concentrating to create feats of engineering how can I then kick back and let the literary imagination flow? I’ve long struggled with these conflicting desires. Throughout…

My Writing Niche Is Me

I write a lot here about my difficulties writing. This is kind of oxymoronic as when I do write, the topic is about how I can't write. Yet because I'm writing about how I can't write I actually have written something - despite the subject of the written work being how I can't…

The Magic Bullet To Write More Often

Every so often I get the idea that if I were to blog underneath a different name I'd blog more often. I get some weird idea that because I actually blog as my 'real life self' that I'm inhibited in what I say and how I often I post. To that I call bullshit. If I wanted to blog…

Page Views

Sometimes it's very hard to predict how many hits this blog will get. For example today I wasn't expecting many hits on this blog. I was expecting to get a lower than average amount of hits. After all it's only Tuesday, and I only wrote a little post earlier about my reaction…

Positive Feedback

When I make a new blog post I never know what to expect. Some posts I can predict will do better than others, however there is no way to know exactly how a post will be received. Some posts I'm hoping for some positive feedback - or any feedback at all. Sometimes I just want to…

Quick Picture Posting

The first picture app I started using was Picplz on my Android phone. There wasn't any other options for me to go to. At the time the app that had all the media in a tizzy was Instagram - and they were iPhone only. But I wanted to post my pictures - easily and quickly too! And…

Year Two Of Blogging Begins Today

One year ago yesterday I started this blog. I wrote then that " This [blog] is the start of a beautiful relationship " and today I still agree with that sentiment. I wasn't confident that I would be able to follow-through with my commitment to keep this blog maintained and…
