...and nobody does whole-of-life blogging anymore

"Nobody wears a watch any more.

Nobody wears a tie either.

Nobody shops at a bookstore, at least nobody I know..."
Seth Godin :: Marketing to nobody

"...and nobody does whole-of-life blogging anymore."
The last bit was mine... albeit I think Seth would approve. I hope.

I've sought counsel from the wise... received comments and tweets from the insightful... and come to realise why I blog: Its not for you... albeit I love it that you read... its for me. I blog for me. The ol' nanolog is my journal. Its my place to record all the things that inspire me. It was on the 12th September, 2005; and it still is today.

That said... I am going to start posting my more in-depth theological thoughts over at the website for the something beautiful podcast. Why? because I think focussed works over there... and I'd like to work with the community that we've built up over the years. Please, if theological is your thing, pop over the the website... and join in the conversation.

Everything else... in its vivid 3D technicolour glory... will continue to be dropped here.

Thank you for sticking with me... and joining me on this journey.

All the blogging pros will tell you you have to pick a nitche and stick with it.
Screw that.
Specialization is for ants! ;-)
I say blog what/how/when you want.
Forget the numbers. Forget the stats. Enjoy what you do and let the rest take care of itself.
(says the man who has 4 different sites he blogs on at different times :-)).

I think it's a good decision. I look around and I still see lots of "whole-of-life" blogs around. I think you do something like this not because of trends or whatever but because you enjoy doing it and thats all that matters. If you don't enjoy it then stop.

In fact I've been thinking about starting my own blog again and it's sites like yours that have given me a little bit of inspiration.
