I’ve enjoyed writing on this blog a lot over the last few years. Unpolished as it is, it’s helped me learn about myself as a writer and as a thinker, both of which are things I was aiming for when I started.
I’ve been reflecting recently that I’d love to do more writing outside this blog, to seek out online publications (or eventually perhaps even print ones) and submit articles to them.
That’s a lot of work, though, and it feels difficult to do that on top of all the writing I expect myself to do here.
This isn’t me saying that I’m stopping or even slowing down my writing here! I have no desire to lose this habit that’s been so worthwhile.
But I’ve been trying to think of how to make the two fit together. The answer is a pretty obvious one, and I’m a bit embarrassed it’s taken me so long to think of it.
What I hope to do is, when I publish something elsewhere, I’ll include a link to it in a post here. And that will count as my post for the week. Eventually I’d hope to have more posts like that than actual substantial posts here, though I don’t expect that such a change would be likely anytime soon.
I write and post this as a reminder to myself and a heads-up to readers. We’ll see how long it takes to come to any sort of fruition. No promises! Until then I have every intention of continuing to write like this as I’ve been doing since 2020.
