Long time, no blog

27 09 2010

Here I am again making an apology for not blogging for some weeks. Actually, sorry, but I’m not sorry. I have been trying (and failing) to complete the first draft of my MA dissertation. I have felt that any substantial writing time should be given over to that important enterprise.

Part of the problem is that my blog posts tend to be a little long-winded. That’s less than ideal in terms of the needs of readers. I could do with being more pithy and concise. Long posts are exhausting to write and exhausting to read.

But my blog fulfils more than one purpose. As well as, I hope, informing and inspiring others (whether positively or negatively) it also functions as something of a personal mission journal. It gives me a discipline and a means for a regular(ish) braindump. Still, there is probably a middle ground which involves shorter and more regular postings that can support, rather than distract from my more formal writing.

I’m sure that you’re reading this because you’ve been hardly able to sleep whilst you’ve been waiting to find out the conclusion of our discernment process at the end of the summer term.

Well if I am to make this an era of shorter posts that had better be the subject of a separate entry. Coming soon…
