Short-form blog posts

It has to be okay to write one-paragraph posts, otherwise I’ll never end up getting what’s in my head out somewhere.

I just don’t happen to be an essay-writing kind of person, I can’t bring myself to write long blog posts, it isn’t something that comes out of me naturally, seems like a lot of work to make happen, and what’s the point1 of second-guessing myself or waiting till I have the “right amount” to write, when the whole idea of having a blog in the first place (for me, at least) is to de-clutter my mind and (secondarily) to share what I’m thinking with anyone who cares?

There has to be something between the pithiness of Twitter and the multi-page topical essays that other people seem to favor … for me, it’s a 1-3 paragraph thought form, and I’m content to reuse this blog to host them.

  1. On the downside, this may be perceived as spamminess, but that’s for you to decide. I guess every post should be greater than 280 characters 🙂
