It can be argued that blogging died the day Twitter launched. Ironic because those dudes made Blogger as well. I love them for that. They are product geniuses. Blogging as a platform is still valid, but personal blogs or small-timey one's like mine make less sense. Status updates and link sharing through twitter or facebook work well enough and are much easier to manage when all you really want to do is get a thought out. There's no need for paragraphs. For better or worse, it's the way things are.
I recently went through this blog and did something I never thought I would. I deleted about half of the posts I've ever written. Over 400 posts have been removed. I did this because I wanted focus to the site. I almost deleted them all, but going through the posts I realized that there were things worth keeping. The cancer stuff, my rants about yahoo, and digital life management. These are the things I will write about. My work and a little about my life and some of the areas in between. I think writing about my experience with lung cancer helps me cope with it and may help others in the process. Writing about my work is the reason why I started this blog and I don't intend to stop.
So I'll leave it at that for now. If I'm going to keep this blog, I want to make it worth it for me and you.
Feel free to browse around and go back in time to read some older stuff. When I did it, I was sort of amazed at how much passion I had. I was very excitable indeed. I think I've lost that edge a little since the cancer shit happened... maybe it will come back. Maybe it won't. My priorities aren't the same, I know that. It's not necessarily apathy, it just might be focus.
The coyotes are howling outside. I hear them in the distance.
