Why I’m not blogging much anymore

*blows dust off blog*

Some of you – well, one person anwyay – may have noticed that I am not blogging much these days. There are two reasons for this:

One, I am hard at work. For ludicrous reasons entirely my own I can’t yet tell you what I am working on, but it’s fun and it’s taking up a lot of my time.

Two, like Ragnar Tornquist, my Internet activities have been largely taken over by Twitter. That means that both my RSS news reader and my blog posting application have been languishing. I write gnomic mini-blog posts, which you can see in the side bar or if you follow me on @JurieOnGames. I also get most of my news over Twitter now. It’s a different experience from reading RSS feeds, but Twitter sort of forces me to admit I can’t read everything, unlike my news reader with it’s quietly judging ‘1000 unread posts’ display.

So, there you go. I don’t intend to stop blogging, but the short messages will definitely be going on Twitter. I intend to set things up so my tweets get posted here as well, for those people who really don’t want to set up a Twitter account. Which, you know, is not that hard – set up a protected account, follow me, and it’s like reading this site on the web.

    Well, obviously I feel like I can breathe again, and it’s good to know you’re still alive. It’s also good to know you can still write using vowels and complex sentences, which is my way of side-stepping into the point that I’m just not interested in Twitter. I know the entire world — if not universe — is devolving into mental micro-transactions, but I just don’t care what anybody has to say in cast-off asides or pithy bits of multi-tasking ADD. Not that you’d do anything like that of course….

    So I’ll keep checking in here, looking for some real meat, whether fresh kill or well-preserved. Enjoy!

    To me, blogging is when you have nothing else to do. So keep up what you’re doing and blog when you have finished it.
