For a guy out of full-time work, you’d think I’d be updating my blog more often, right?
Maybe it’s because I don’t have a topic — beyond me — or because I’m managing my other blog, Automatic Finances. (Reality check: it’s mostly because I’m always looking for a new theme for this site, even though I know writing more content is way more important than a new theme.)
But, I need to blog here. And I have stuff to blog about. Like, I’m on a new podcast — Tech Blab, co-hosted with my friends Dave Weinberg and Noah Wolfe. You can download the first episode here or subscribe via iTunes.
In recording this podcast, I’ve found out at least 3 things about myself:
- I am naturally skeptical about some things, like “game-changers” or anything that gets a lot of hype. I want to believe, but reality keeps me grounded.
- There’s a reason why I like John C. Dvorak. It’s much more fun to take the counter-argument than go along with the crowd.
- Debbie is right that I have a tendency to be a low-talker. Crap.
But I think I’ve also figured out why I don’t update this blog as much as I should or could. For one, there’s way too much already happening in the tech echo chamber, and I’m not one to just re-hash what others are saying or try and engage in the massive conversation.
Second, even though I enjoy writing, there’s a reason I’ve pegged myself as a multimedia journalist — audio and video publishing is more exciting (and easier to comprehend) than only text. So maybe I need to do more multimedia here. Even if it just makes me feel better about myself.
So, that’ll be my goal for this site: to produce more content, both audio and video. The 24 video recaps were fun, but that whole having-a-kid-thing threw off my timing and sleep.
