Here’s a meta question: Who actually reads this? People who don’t normally comment here, and people who read this at sites I don’t track–Livejournal, Dreamwidth, Twitter, RSS feeds, you name it–please comment.
One thing I would like to do is to associate different nights with different kinds of long-form blog posts. Thursday would be for music, as it has been for years, while Wednesday might be for pop culture, Monday and Friday for more various themed stuff, and so on.
Thematically, I’d like to focus the blog tightly. The focus I’ve chosen so far is on Toronto and secondarily on islands, not just Prince Edward Island, leaving other linkage for the [BLOG] and [NEWS] posts of the earlier parts of the day.
If you have better ideas, please tell me. I only want A Bit More Detail to get better, and recognize I need help from others to take it to the next level.
Long-time readers of A Bit More Detail are probably aware that I follow routines fairly strictly. A photo post invariably comes in the morning, followed by bulk links posts (news items now as well as blogs), followed by individual links of interest to me, followed some later some nights by essays and the kind. The idea of a routine helps me write, gives me a much-needed structure for this blog and much else.
I’m thinking of imposing still more structure on A Bit More Detail and its ancillary blogs, of committing myself to more writing of long-format posts like essays. I like writing. I aspire to be a writer, of some kind and of some import. Why not now?
For most of the past two weeks, I’ve been fighting an unpleasant stomach bug. Between work and rest, I’ve not have much time–or at least, much incentive–to be very busy here.
On a more profound level, I’ve been thinking a bit about my blog and what I want to achieve here. I have a greater interest in long-form writing than my posts here have indicated, I believe, as well as a disinterest in remaining particularly invested in content that I’m not particularly interested in composing. So, there will be changes. I’m not sure how far these changes will go at this point. Perhaps you’ll stay to discover them with me?|
