@colinwalker this is such a great post Colin. I am fascinated by the concept of outboard memory, the commonplace book. Blogging was always supposed to be the log (of thoughts) you maintain on web.
Over the years it lost its fundamental reason for existence and became something too formal, too complicated.
@colinwalker @amit in retrospect, the worst thing to happen to my writing was to have a few “hits” and a suddenly higher subscriber count. I stopped posting until I felt like I had something great to say... which wound up being not posting... Now my followers are gone and I am free to do what I want :)
