One thing I like about blogging as a form is that it’s natural to revisit topics you’ve discussed before. A blog is a record of your evolving thoughts.
Or sometimes, your “living fossil” thoughts that haven’t evolved at all. Earlier this week, I posted on questions you should ask yourself if you’re thinking of starting a blog. It was a really easy post to write, I banged it out quickly. Presumably because, as I just discovered, I’ve written it before.
They say the memory is the first…wait, what was I talking about? 🙂
That recent post was pretty popular despite being a total rerun. Which illustrates how any old post that doesn’t come up high in common Google searches gets flushed down the internet’s collective memory hole. I’m now tempted to take a break from writing new posts, and just repost old ones, but without telling anyone I’m doing it. Then I’ll wait and see if anyone notices. I’m betting nobody will–since after all I just did it and even I didn’t notice! 🙂
