all the posts that never happen - sometimes life happens too fast to sit and put together the time to put the bits together. These orphans become the grist of the future, perhaps. I keep a folder labelled "random future typecasts" where I toss what doesn't get used. Occasionally something jumps out of there when things are slow. (:
That's not a bad idea really. I do keep all the work that I've thought of, but I don't always feel that some of the stuff is appropriate for posting at a later stage.
oh yeah, huge piles of un-used stuff. Usually because the moment where it's relevant has passed. Ahh well. At least it's on paper.
Yes, I'm with you there. These all looked interesting.
Congrats on 2 years...Gee
Thank you good sir!
And.... Thanks again!
- and nice photos too! I think you should add: photo blog.
Probably not a bad idea really. Thanks Rino.
Finding the time to blog is the tricky part for me, Scott. I have one or two posts that are sitting in the 'drafts' section of blogger until I can devote the proper time to them. Congrats on two years, too, by the way.
Well, I know how you feel. And I often find myself throwing up something a bit... average, and just going 'Oh well, this is the typosphere! It is all about raw writing'. Thanks!
Yes, great photos - a picture paints a thousand blog words. And to think these are the ones that almost didn't see the light of day. :)
Well, most of them have several more to complete the story that would have come with them. But never mind.
Doesn't blogger have a scheduling option? Just write a couple of blogs when you do have time and then schedule them for when you don't have time. Or otherwise just post the pictures when you're having a lazy day, text isn't always needed you know? Congratz on the two years!
Thank you! Nice to be able to stick through with writing on it for two years. You're right. I should just post the photos and be damned with it! As for the blogs themselves, it isn't about timing them, but finding time to write them. Often I've written 4 pages of ranty-ranty drivel and gone 'no one wants to read that'! And other times, I just haven't had the time or the mindspace to write in a way that does the subject justice.
This all looks quite interesting. I trust your comments at the start do not mean that you're thinking of deleting your entire blog -- just moving the content onto another platform?
Yeah, that's the idea. I intend to shift across to another platform so I can have a bit more flexibility in my blog. Right now Blogger doesn't have the facilities that I need. As well as some other issues that I have with how google operates.
Ah, the ones that got away. I am familiar with this problem. I can form a lucid and thorough essay in my head while walking and forget every last word by the time I st down with half an hour to spare. These are lovely glimpses at what might have been.
I have done that many a time. Worse, I have thought up some amazing wording, only to later go to write and find my mind is blank.
It's a blogger thing! Happens to me at least twice a day!
Congrats on the milestone. Some stunning photos. I hope Filthy Labs makes a reappearance in the next iterations of your blog(s)
You know, I've been thinking of a few projects for the labs. But I've also been thinking something a little more grander than just the blog.
