I’ve tried blogging before; it was a struggle:
- Do people care at all about what I think?
- Once I write something, am I liable for that thought forever?
- Perhaps I’m wrong…
- Suppose this blogging place goes away…?
- Is this the best place to put this?
So today, I’ve resolved to create my blog entries in the most permanent place I know, and then use OTHER blogging presences for “publishing” those blogs.
Today, the most permanent place I know is Google. They’re big, and they’re relatively open compared to other big places. And gDocs is a minimally viable place to write 😉
I will NOT treat my blogs as PERMANENT. I will retain the privilege and responsibility of updating my blogs if I feel they need it. They most always will need updating, as I will write from what I know at time of writing. Later, I am likely to have learned, and may choose to update my writing to reflect that new understanding.
Commentary on my blogs will unfortunately be relevant to specific versions / revisions of my blog entries. Hopefully, I choose blogging places that understand versioning.
So this is my “coming out” blog entry
