For the past several months, I’ve been really busy making things. Focusing on creativity has made me very contented. I’ve decided to make more stuff.
Conversely, I’m also really lazy. If I can find a way of saving time – even 5 seconds- I will do.
I’ve decided to combine these two different parts of my personality into a personal project for 2017. A kind of doing less/creating more project. I’m going to spend the rest of 2016 working out exactly what I want to do.
Before I can start this, I’d like to re-organise my online life in order to start over. I’ve been feeling like my online self requires far too much upkeep. Too many people wanting and demanding too much of ‘Me’… I’m sure I’m not the only one who has been getting stressed out about this stuff. I’ve stepped away from the world a bit and pared things down a lot in order to refocus. The first part of my re-organisation was to remove my old blog posts. I’ve had this blog since 2002, so I didn’t really want to just delete it. Instead a few weeks ago I got my blog printed as a book at Blog2Print.
I don’t know if Blog2Print is the best place or not, but I’m happy with the result. I just wanted a paper copy of my blog so I could happily trash the digital version. I’ve put the book on my ‘tech book’ shelf.
I’ve left a few posts up simply to fill the front page. I may take them down later on as I start to fill this up with posts from my new ‘project’. I hope you’ll join me.
