I resolve this year to publish more long-form blog posts with whatever cool stuff I’m working on, for work or for fun.
I’m trying to treat social media as more ephemeral. I quit Twitter entirely last year, deleting the account; my mastodon.technology account has vanished with the server shutting down, and I’ve even set my new account to delete non-bookmarked posts after two weeks.
It’s fun to talk about my projects a couple hundred characters at a time, but it’s also really nice to put together a bigger post that can take you through something over time and collect all the pieces together.
A long-form blog, with updateable pages, allows for this, and I think makes for a better experience when you really *do* mean to publish something informative or interesting. Let’s bring embloggeration back!
