A pause for re-alignment


Whilst the main purpose of this blog has been to catalogue cool stuff I find in areas of design, architecture, art, technology and popular culture, for my own future reference and inspiration, I had never intended for it to be merely a rebroadcasting of material I find on other blogs.

As, to my surprise, I started to build a list of faithful subscribers, I felt obliged to give a little insight behind my reasons for posting particular items rather than have each post become merely a captioned image and a link. However, of late, because of pressure on time due to work and family commitments, I find that many of my recent posts have reverted to just that – quick image grabs and links to where I found them.

So the reason for this post, dear reader, is to communicate the fact that I am aware of this shift of emphasis and will do all I can to re-align to the path I had always intended for this blog – to make it a place where I can create an archive of cool material for myself and others, to express my thoughts and opinion and possibly ruffle a few feathers…. oh and attract big paying advertisers and get free stuff from people wanting me to review their products..!

    posting up links to other sites (for personal reference and sharing) was the original purpose of (we)blogs, before they became a platform for er.. blogging.. , so it’s perfectly valid just to post things up without comment. As a techie I often post things up so I can find them again later (I often come across my own blog posts when googling for an answer to a technical problem!). So keep posting – I rely on you as a filter to feed me cool/ beautiful things to look at – otherwise i’d spend all my time on twitter and geek sites :)

    Thanks for those kind words of encouragement Rick. Don’t worry though – this post was not meant to signal a hiatus. I will continue to post and where possible address the issue of brevity in my postings.

    I think it’s great that you recognize this but I also think it’s nice that blogs have an eb & flow that goes from in-depth material to the superficial and fun…it’s the web after all :)
