I’m certain that no one finds my own wrap-up posts more interesting than I do. That’s fine. I can review old thoughts, I can condense, and with some distance I can ask myself “How could I have said this better?”
I’ve complained about this before, but I still don’t edit much before publishing. There are miles to go before I would call a given post I’ve made even presentable outside of the very tiny pocket of the internet that I inhabit. Hopefully 2015 will be a bit different. My intention is that future posts will be a little more intentional, a little clearer, and maybe even suggest effort in the writing(!(?)).
When I started writing in 2013, my approach to writing was “fire-and-forget”. There’s a time and place for that attitude, but maybe not “attached to my name and in public”. Still, I found topics that still interest me and that might warrant returning to: theories of organization, the ideas of apologetic and legitimacy, and Spengler and other downwing political writers and their concerns about the incomprehensible and the unmanageable in the world. I branched out a short-lived devblog. I don’t like talking about my business, it turns out.
