I’ve been really quiet here again. There was definitely a lot of personal “inspect and adapt” activity going on. But also, I think I spread myself too thin.
The web, and social media in particular, don’t favor polymaths. Readers want writers to stick to a single subject. But I’m not a single subject kind of human. I’m all over the place. We may have conversations about IT, leadership, fountain pens, writing, canoeing, photography, motorcycles, travel, and more. I am all of those things in one.
So every time I tried splitting those facets of myself into different outlets, I became less and less effective at managing my presence on all of them. I was spinning too many plates.
Then, in an act that may be a bit like pissing into the wind, I’ll just focus my efforts in fewer places, but on any subject matter I choose. We’ll see how it goes from there.
