New Microblogging Section

I added a new microblogging section called “thoughts” to this site.


Well, I’ve noticed that I don’t blog as much as I’d like to, and the reason I belive is that I think of blog posts as a kind of long-form article with a clear message and structure. Something that could be published in a magazine or on a news website (although I’m not nearly good enough at writing for that).

But that keeps me from blogging, because I often just have a half structured thought in my head that I want to get out without spending an hour or more shaping it into a full article.

I realise that’s a bit irrational and a problem I’m creating for myself - after all, this is my site and I can do whatever I want on it. But still, that’s the way my brain works, and rather than try to fight it, I’m going to go with it and have different sections for quick posts and longer articles from now on.

One thing I’m not quite sure about is how to handle the RSS feed. Have everything in one feed, or separate feeds for blog posts and microblogs? For now I’ve got them both in one feed and I guess I’ll see how it goes and if I want to change it. Any thoughts or feedback is of course welcome!

I hope this makes it easier for me to get more stuff out without worrying so much about the quality of the posts.
