Looking at the previous posts on this page, it’s extremely noticeable that I haven’t focused on writing as much as I used to. I’m loving del.icio.us, so I use that when I come across cool articles worth sharing. I camp in Bloglines when I’m on the computer. When I’m not on the computer, I’m either hanging out with friends, catching up on TV shows I’ve “recorded”, or gaming on my ghetto PS2.
I believe the thing that’s changed is that I’ve “evolved” to using two blogs to keep personal and technology-related separate. Now, I feel more…pressured…to write more meaningful topics here, and I inadvertently created a mental block. I definitely don’t think I’ve been doing blog-worthy things lately to warrant regular posting at Bryan Off Topic.
Does any of that even matter? With RSS, I don’t really care if someone writes bi-weekly. There’s always content out there to read, watch, or listen to. I’m not doing anything controversial or questionable.
- Should I buy a new domain name and start fresh? (My last name is tough to spell when you hear it the first time. It isn’t exactly spelled like it sounds, so it can get frustrating.)
- Should I delete Bryan Off Topic and go back to using one blog?
The people that prompted me to think about this is Alex King and Matt Mullenweg (Photo Matt). Both have recently redesigned their website (and they look excellent!) More specifically, I like the use of the articles plugin Alex created, as well as the elegant simplicity. On Matt’s site, I love the header and navigation. Too bad I can’t design – maybe I should try and learn how to over the vacation period?
I love thoughts, especially if they’re from you. 🙂
