A new thing I’m trying are what I’m calling miniposts. These are entries that generally don’t even have title and are just a quick comment on something I see that is interesting but is not — or hasn’t yet — developed into a full post. I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time, and now that I am it is as liberating as I thought.
This is of course not new at all — people have been doing it one way or another since the start of blogging itself, most recently in the form of Twitter and related things. MT, with its structure of title and big boxes that seem to beg for a lot of text creates a strong pull into creating long posts, at least for me. And that sometimes can cramp my style.
We’ll see where this goes. 🙂
