Neglected blogging

Poster FakeThis is the 16th posting I’ve done so far in 2006, making me the most neglectful blogger ever. Alright, maybe not ever, but in an awfully long time. My first New Year’s resolution was to procrastinate more. I figured I’d take care of the rest of them by Chinese New Year. I have one more, and that is to do a better job of keeping up with the blogging.

Which leads me to the question of “why”? This is a question I ask a lot about blogging, and since I don’t know why I myself blog, it’s hard to know why others do. However, I have recently realized that this blog has a much farther reach than I ever would have expected, or really aimed for. Nonetheless, I have an obligation to my readers, even those of you who only come to visit every once in a while, to provide you with as much brilliance as I have to offer.

There are a couple of other reasons I am going to get back to the blogging process. I have been very busy lately on a lot of projects, and frankly, I’m only going to do things worth blogging from now on. That means I am no longer going to do laundry! I’ll tell you how that works out.

I’m also going to sweep up the blog a bit, and do a real design, more fitting with my new urban digs. I’ve never been concerned about being an A-list blogger before, and to be perfectly honest, about growing the number of readers I have beyond those who already read. But over the next few months, I’m going to make a concerted effort to blog more frequently, more fervently, and more expertly, and see if this results in more readers. Hopefully, that means a bit of an infusion of excitement that has been missing lately.

    At least you have 16. I broke my blog pause earlier today & actually blogged on the same topic about where the heck I’ve been since November 2005. Amazing that life can get in the way of blogging sometimes …

    With all this Web 2.0 business all over the blogosphere, I do see the need for more grounded communication perspectives on how and why some of these community-based services work or don’t work. You did great work on Slashdot… does your research still apply for things like Wikipedia,, Digg, or even moderated services like Newsvine, Memeorandum and TailRank?
