@colinwalker I’ve had the opposite problem: 27 short posts and only 2 long posts so far this month. I didn’t think I had made nearly that many short posts; I only knew I wasn’t writing posts that required any sort of sustained thinking.
Part of my “problem” is that I am spending time interacting with people here on Micro.blog, which does cut in to time I could be writing longer posts. On the other hand, I have been wanting to do more photo-type blogging for a long time, and 9 of those 27 short posts are photo posts (+2 more that are photo-text hybrids), so I am at least accomplishing another goal.
@smokey that’s the point of micro.blog that makes the most sense to me - a rich flow of information that has quick eddies (micro conversations) and slower currents (long posts) I’d bet most people fall into one or the other category as producers of content but enjoy both as consumers. Which leads to my current itch - how to classify this flow of information to consume and to retrieve easily. In that sense it’s a bit like RSS.
@seishonagon I was definitely surprised I was producing so much short-form content (on my own site, not counting replies), because I never saw myself as much of a short-form person 😮
I was nodding along in understanding and agreement until I got to

I don’t understand what you mean by that sentence 😕
@smokey yeah - I wrote this before my second morning coffee. I mean that if micro.blog really takes off, it may become a bit of a information firehose, like RSS, and it may lack some tools. I didn’t pay much attention this week, and getting back to conversations that may be interesting to me is not frictionless.
