I’ve decided to start doing more posts around here, but make them less “complete.” Or less wordy. With any luck, this should be a win-win… I’ll do more updates, but they’ll be a lot shorter. More pith, because I actually like to be pithy — or at least make the attempt. 50% more pith, even.[1. Hence the slogan; the fine print reads, “Avoid eye contact. Regular reading of the material on this blog may cause excessive snarkiness and occasional pith. If swallowed, consult a physician immediately.” click the image for a closer look.] More pith, but without losing any snarkiness. This means that when I write articles that are more “feature-length” as many of my past posts have been, I’ll set them apart as articles or featured content rather than standard blog updates.
In case you’re wondering, this is a result of a study by my focus group — a.k.a. my friend Dan, who said he loves to look at the blog and loves to read it, appreciates the great content, but the entries are sometimes so thorough that he wants to come back and read it later. So by saying less per installment, I hope you’ll read it now. Shows the importance of getting feedback, so we’ll give it a try.
For what it’s worth, I also moved the site onto a new server and completely rewrote the site theme at the same time. Since I’m moving to shorter posts, the “Link Blog” will probably get folded back into the main blog content and feed. Hope you enjoy the new format.
