Where does the time go? This is my 64th blog since starting this a year ago at about this time. But here’s an update: I’m planning to blog LESS frequently going forward for the benefit of both myself and subscribers. Instead of about once a week, I’ll plan to blog once every 2 or 3 weeks. Maybe even once a month.
The benefit for me would be better quality writing and thinking. Just by the very nature of online writing, what used to be better formed arguments degrade to aphorisms. Thoughts become puns. Rhetoric becomes telegram style. Now even though it’s downgraded, aphorisms, puns, and telegrams are still intelligent. Just not as deep. Thus, the resolution to spend more time in deep thought yet still keep the not as deep intelligence.
The benefits for subscribers is hopefully to spend time not on the Internet and more into harder books such as War and Peace. We have to try to spend at least a little bit of time with harder material #glorifyGodWithTheGiftOfInterllienceWhichHeGaveUs.
I know War and Peace could be read as an eBook, but the electronic device is associated with notifications and multi-tasking and switching constantly, that I don’t think reading it as an eBook would be as effective and as deeply read.
Plus, it’s crazy that thanks to Google, even my much older posts get viewed even to this day. So there’s no need to hurry myself.
