... have to come from somewhere, right? Here's hoping that my website is one of them!
So, why did I start a blog? I was hoping that it help me form some new habits and foster that fabled discipline I keep hearing about. A thing I have learned from being a netizen in 2018 is that a good way to foster engagement and retention is through inertia of content. What I mean by this is the phenomenon where you come upon some media you like and when you go to see what else the creator has done you find a lot more waiting for you. And so you go down the rabbit hole for the next few hours learning about every facet of this person's ouevre. This is an incredible rush to have ... until you catch up with all their content and now must wait with all of the others for the next time the creator graces us with their work. But if the body of work is large enough, it could take quite some time and that feeling of perpetual discovery can last. I want to use the blog in this way such that folks coming to check out my Portfolio or Media can gain a little insight about me and maybe stay for the sweet, sweet content.
I also want to be able to look back at this post and feel physical pain at how poorly I started all this which would be a sign of how much I have grown since. And if at that time this website hasn't panned out or my fortunes have taken a turn for the worse, this will be the final post my future self shall read. And so, this good thing will finally have come to an end.
