What Is Blogging I

Those of you that still visit the actual website for this blog (rather than just reading via RSS) will have noticed a slight change to the blog layout. Nothing of my work there, I’ve just adapted/adopted the new, three column version of the Mandigo theme.

As I approach the 1000th post on this blog, I’m thinking a lot about what I have and haven’t achieved through this process, what is working and not working and what to do with blogging in the future. Maybe it is just end of summer blues, but as a few recent posts might have highlighted, I’m not fully satisfied with my participation in the blogosphere at the moment.

Of course, part of that is because I’m in a state of transition in terms of life itself. My simple thesis about blogging is that it works best when it flows out of the work you already do. This summer has, for me not been a productive one. It naturally follows that my blogging would lack direction and drive. What I have been doing is a lot of organising, a lot of the tough GTD stuff, a lot of personal auditing and a lot of planning. Maybe I should have blogged about those things instead – I don’t know.

Thanks F! I find blogging when there is a connection to where I am the most inspiring but i also find it the hardest to blog in transitional times too – it just feels too mushy to write about (to use a tech term)… I’m not sure i like pushing myself to more abstracted blogging but i guess it keeps my hand in and helps with some of the thinking/reflecting even if it around the edges and maybe sounding out future directions…

Paul – agree about blogging through transistions. I find the big changes, like change of house or country quite blog-inspiring. But, the smaller things, like changes in workflows or quotidian habits much less clear. I’m interested though in how you view blogging future directions.
