I got inspired by Ben writing this piece about good old fashioned blogging and how we should all try and make it good again: http://noisydecentgraphics.typepad.com/design/2010/09/lets-make-blogging-good-again.html
It made me realise just how lazy I’ve been with blogging. And of course I have excuses for that. But there’s a part of me that genuinely misses the whole blogging thing. For a while I was thinking about just jacking it in. Especially after the whole hacking episode.
But then I started to think about what I love about blogging and how much it’s done for me, things that not-blogging platforms like Twitter never can or will. Things like the weekend where I took the challenge to do a bunch of stuff and had a really great time, (like making butter…)
Plus I got a lovely mail from someone the other day about how much my post on Mental Detox Week had inspired them. Which made me reconsider blog-retirement.
And screw Posterous and all that jazz, I’m just going to do it old school. Me and the blog against the world and all that new fangled Tumbleration and stuff…
