There are a few changes coming up that I’ve been mulling over for a few months and have finally found the tools to make happen.
First, my “home page” at http://thecompany.net/jason/ is going to be changed a bit to become my Lifestream. The Lifestream is a history of stuff I’ve been doing online. Right now it’ll include information from Facebook, Twitter, Last.fm, and Digg. There are a few others that I’m going to look into becoming more active with, as well (e.g. Yelp).
I’m still going to keep the blog, but the URL for it will change to something like http://thecompany.net/jason/blog/ or http://thecompany.net/jason/doublereading. I have to look into the mechanics of changing my WordPress settings before I do that.
The philosophy of the blog will change a bit, though. It will only be longer, more thought-out postings/reactions to things. If I want to share a link, I’ll either digg it or tweet about it. If I just want to post about how I loved last night’s Battlestar Galactica but don’t want to feel guilty about not doing some deeper analysis/reviewing, I’ll just tweet about it.
I’m hoping that all of this will make me more likely to post things. That is the ultimate goal.
The one thing I do not plan on changing, at the moment, is the design of the site. I’m currently still really happy with how things like (that “distressed” feeling), so I probably won’t shake things up there.
