Neglected

Friday, August 30, 2019

I've been neglecting my personal site for a long time. I want to keep it running, but I do things in sprints. Projects get done a chunk at a time, sometimes over years. Eventually, I do finish my projects.

During the time I've had this site, I've thought about what I wanted to do with it. I'm a little conflicted. I thought I was going to blog about tech projects, but I've gotten bored with that. When I'm working, I can't be blogging. When I'm not working, I want to do something else, like play drums or make drawings.

I've decided not to have a tech blog, but a place where I can dump anything I'm thinking about or doing. It'll be a more interesting site, but it will be chaotic. It's something I've resisted doing because I like to keep my different worlds compartmentalized - separate notebooks for different kinds of notes, separate sketchbooks for different kinds of sketches. The problem is, the different types of things bleed into one another. Rather than resisting, I'm now trying to drop the compartmentalization. Hopefully with good results.
