Blogging with the Stars

I’ve been hibernating over the winter. To be specific, I’ve been marking assignments. There was no time for updating this blog. But when I say ‘no time for updating’, I mean I had no time to write longish articles. There was certainly time to write shorter ones.

This morning, I had an idea. Maybe two.

When I write a long article, I will put a ? in its title. This will tell you/warn you that the article goes into a topic in some depth. When I write a short one, there will be no star.

This method is somewhat stolen from John Gruber, the author of a Mac site called Daring Fireball. He doesn’t use the ? to demarcate the long from the short. It indicates a permalink. But I thought the ?s sure looked pretty.

I’m going to expand the scope of this blog somewhat, too. Over the years, I’ve focused on the creative process, which is well and good when I’m creating something. But when I’m not, I don’t have anything to write about. So I’ll try to blog about my other interests too.

Oh, Jeebus, might this be This Writing Life 2.0?

Cue the perpetual beta.
