A Great Year for Blogging
Just before New Year, I happened to look at the archive and realised that I’d only written a single post in the entirety of 2018, making it the joint-leanest year since I started this site in 2002. This was certainly not intentional, but rather due to a parade of other things big and small eating up my time. Nevertheless, it’s something I resolved to improve upon in 2019.
My resolve was cemented when I came across Manton Reece’s post, which ends on the following positive note:
I think 2019 is going to be a great year for blogging.
This may well turn out to a sentiment akin to the Year of Linux On The Desktop, more hope than reality, but I there are reasons to think that there may be something in it. Barely a week goes by without a revelation of a remorseless Facebook doing something terrible, and Twitter is increasingly polarised and toxic. The shine definitely seems to be coming off centralised, bite-sized social networks.
Whether or not this is the case generally, I’m going to aim to write more here this year. We’ll see how that goes…
