Why a new blog? Not sure. Lens has been my blog for many years, however I infrequently update it. I wanted a good way to separate my original writing and thoughts and just posting links and commenting on them. I tried different ways of doing it on Lens, however, none were easy to maintain. Of course there are social networks but I fear oversharing and did want something to call my own.
So I am going to try this approach, in which Status will be treated for short thoughts and mostly links to whatever I am reading. Just like Facebook or Twitter status, but much more frequently than I post links on those social networks. Lens will continue to exist but will be updated with original and somewhat long-form writing.
Hopefully this will sustain, as I have had too many blogs and sites that I used for different purposes.
