But I’ve actually never really enjoyed reading or writing long posts. It’s ok if you do, but I just don’t. I’m at a point in my life where I’d rather spend an hour exploring ten new ideas, even if superficially, than one in great detail. So that’s how I’m going to write.
I’ll continue to blog the way I do guilt-free, knowing that I’m not the only one out there with these thoughts. As much as I’d love to be a long form writer and reader, I can rarely bring myself to afford the time and mental energy to put something worthwhile together. I’m just a bit too scatter-brained, and interested in way too many things. Since opening conormcclure.me and diving into it, I’ve written and published so much more than ever before, just in shorter, more-frequent postings.
The best blog is the blog you love using. Ironically, this would make a great long form essay. I’ll get around to it eventually.
