“Create the kind of communities and ideas you want people to talk about”

I’ve had an idea in my task list for a week or so now, and I just haven’t made the time to write about it, at least not as I originally intended when I read the post that inspired it. Jamie Rubin wrote his post titled “A Vision for Blogging in 2019” a few weeks […]

New Year’s resolutions are a little weird, and arbitrary

New Year’s resolutions are a little weird. We pick this convenient change from one year to the next, and declare our intentions to do more or better. I’m not sure that we give much thought to why we pick this one date as the time for this rededication to some form of self-improvement. New Year’s […]

Feedback that inspires me to be a better blogger

I enjoy blogging because I enjoy sharing things that interest me. My blog has a pretty modest following, and I like receiving feedback on posts that resonate with readers. This evening, I opened Twitter for some reason, and noticed this wonderful tweet from Jamie Rubin, a writer, blogger, and stimulus for my Field Notes obsession: […]

Thoughts about being off Facebook

I just read Cheri Baker’s post titled “Eight months without Facebook” that touches on my unformed thoughts about being on Facebook.
