Posting “interesting Items with Analysis and Commentary” Here, Instead of My Linkblog

For quite a while, I’ve been posting a few “newsworthy” items per day, with some of my commentary, over at my linkblog – http://linkblog.joshbancroft.com. Sort of a “let me be a clipping service and filter for you”. The items get piped to other locations, according to Josh’s Greater Unified Internet Tubes Theory, like FriendFeed, my friends on Google Reader, etc.

Like Twitter, and other places I write, I’ve felt that it’s sort of taken away from how much I write here on my blog. You may have noticed. I only post here now about once a week, but I’m writing like mad elsewhere. The problem is, not many people are visiting my linkblog, or subscribing to its feed. So I’m going to try a change.

I’m going to start posting those “interesting item with a little bit of analysis/commentary from Josh” items here on my blog, instead of on my linkblog. I’ll still drop occasional stuff – mostly “drive by” links without commentary. But if you’re subscribed there, you’ll want to make sure to subscribe here, at my blog feed, too.

Let me know if you have any thoughts. Hopefully this will make things simpler and more interesting! :-)

  2. Thanks, Brent. I usually only wrote a line or two of commentary, but lately I’ve been writing more and more when I share something, and that’s good stuff! I want more people to see it. 😉

    That, and I like John Gruber’s style on http://daringfireball.net – he often posts just a link with a sentence or two of commentary (with occasional larger posts). I guess that’s kind of what I’m going for. We’ll see how it goes!

  3. And really, with the way all of my “tubes” are connected, the only people this is really going to affect are people who get this stuff via my Google Reader Shared Items, and NOWHERE else.

    In fact, now that I think about it, I can hook up the category feed I’m using for these posts to go back into my linkblog (powered by soup.io), so they’ll still show up there for people who want them.

    Yay for the tubes, and the Internet Content Plumbing Specification! :-)
