Back to Writing

I am terrible at this.  I need to stop being terrible at it.  I have no idea exactly what I'm going to end up focusing on here, but I do know that I need to start doing this again.   I used to love writing here, and the years of 140(now 280) character thoughts and hot takes really changed my writing habits, and not for the better.

 

The thing is, while no one actually reads longer form writing anymore, I think it is as important as it ever has been, maybe more so.  Sure, the style has to change, and how things are presented has to change, but we live in a world of 280 characters, 90 second video clips, and 2 sentence thoughts.  That simply isn't enough.

 

A topic like the current challenges of Facebook is a much bigger discussion than a couple tweets or 30 seconds on a newscast.  What the heck actually is Patreon, Kickstarter or Indiegogo?  We hear about those campaigns in 30 second clips all the time, but I don't think many people actually understand how they work or what they do well and poorly.  Explaining these types of things in a longer way that will actually make sense is important, and hard.  And, that type of writing is what I'm going to try to do.  I have absolutely no idea if I'm going to succeed.  I have no idea how often I'm going to write here.  I have no idea if anyone will actually read it.  But I'm going to try to do it, if only for myself.

 

Stay tuned.
