I recently started following pluralistic.net by Cory Doctorow.
Today’s article, https://pluralistic.net/2023/05/02/wunderkammer/, contained a link to an article in which he describes his blogging method. That blogging methodology article is called, The Memex Method. What reasonated most with me were two ideas:
First, there is the idea that just collecting what interests you and using the writing process to deepen memory.
Second, I liked the idea that, every now and then, ideas talk to each other and start forming nuclei that can crystallize into something bigger.
I always listen closely when someone tries to explain to me why he is blogging. Partly, the reason for this interest of mine might be the fact that I entertain a blog myself into which I write way too irregularly.
In the past, one of those articles that I liked was the post by Matt Mullenweg on why he blogs: https://ma.tt/2014/01/intrinsic-blogging/. But I found Doctorow’s arguments much more convincing.
