I decided to join twitter due to the fact that I seem to put off writing a lot of my short blog posts because I want to expand on them even though they would be fine as a short blog post.
Twitter constrains me to 140 characters per message so it’s perfect for short blog posts, and can be used for other miscellaneous updates. Hopefully this will not only make me not put off the short blog posts to the point where they never get written, but it will also make me more interested in actually writing my longer blog posts because I won’t be dismayed by all of those short blog post titles just waiting for an accompanying article.
All of my twitter updates will be posted here daily (as long as the WordPress plugin for that actually works) and I’m debating whether or not to show them in the sidebar. You can also follow me on twitter at http://twitter.com/SamuelGS
At this stage I think this is just what I need to get back in to blogging regularly. Twitter’s 140 character limit is just the psychological limit that I need…I think…we’ll see how it goes.
Update: OK, it’s silly for me to post short immediate updates to twitter and only have them appear here once per day. The daily archive will be posted here once per day, but I’ve decided that the latest updates need to be visible in the sidebar. So far, so good, this is looking promising. End Update
