No, despite my activity on Twitter, I don’t blame it for my barely bi-monthly postings here. And given Twitter’s uptime (ba-dum-bum) you shouldn’t either.
There’s a far more guilty party; Cullect.com.
Writing posts on Twitter is easy – have a passing thought, write it down. Done.
Writing more than 140 characters is more time consuming. An hour, if I actually collect my thoughts. An hour Cullect whisks away far more easily. Just ask the 10 drafts at this blog, a few more elsewhere, and the 2 coffee review podcasts in the queue.
The few bits of weblog writing I eek out between posts here are probably at Cullect’s blog (though it has a number of unpub’d drafts as well).
3 Other things Cullect has all but eradicated:
- The First Crack Podcast.
- My regular 5k running work out.
- My Netflix queue.
Like my newborn daughter, Cullect is only a few weeks old. We’re all still adjusting.
Big thanks to Dan Grigsby for asking.
Update 29 May 2008
Though I’ve picked up the pace since publishing this, I wanted to chime in to Chris Heuer’s question of why I don’t write more often by seconding a few of his excuses:
- Don’t think I have anything valuable to say
- Not in the mood
