And so it was written..

After a week of being buried under a mountain of fan letters, phone calls, emails, canvassers, and picket sign holders, I've finally began to sort out how my millions of fans see this whole blog thing shaking out. Following a strongly worded letter by the political action group known for its brutality and arts lobbying, the Minnesota Institute for Claviers And Horns; Circuitry, better known as M.I.C.A.H.-Circuitry (presumably a place to learn about electrical engineering and music?), I have made the decision to follow its suggestion of the group and implement the following blog structure:

1. Write fairly long posts about things [I] care deeply about maybe every two weeks or so.

2. Post interesting things from elsewhere on the Internet, recent bizarre experiences, etc. about every four or five days.

C. Write awesomely epic posts whenever necessary.

This should serve the purpose of satisfying both my fans and my critics. Actually, wait, who gives a shit about my critics, those guys suck and are losers anyway, they didn't even get invited to Geoff Walsh's graduation party and EVERYBODY got invited to that party, oh my god even that weird kid from history who smells like burritos.

To Blog or to blog differently...

So, as both of you know, I haven't written anything since before I moved to Alaska. This is not for lack of things to talk about, but a combination of being busy and also not feeling particularly compelled to sit down and write out a long blog entry. This got me thinking about why that seemed so unappealing to me lately. I realized that most of my posts are long, fairly detailed posts with lots of pictures and links. And frankly, they take a lot of time, or at least they take me a lot of time. So while I love writing, the thought of sitting down for an hour to write a blog post and find/create appropriate pictures has not seemed worth the effort to me lately.

Then it dawned on me that I could simply change the format of my writing to accommodate my laziness. I feel like I would probably post a lot more if I didn't feel disappointed in cranking out shorter, less detailed/complex entries. So I'm asking you, reader(s), what would you prefer? More sporadic but longer entries like now, or shorter, more Tumblr-esque posts more frequently (and possibly switching my blog entirely to a Tumblr format)? Once I hear what all 4 commenters prefer, I'll make a decision and move on that.
