2parse is not yet done

Wednesday, July 7th, 2010

The experience of not feeling the pressure to write 1 or 2 or 3 posts a days is quite liberating.

Yet I still feel compelled to write and comment and otherwise engage with political discussions and the news.

But I have not yet decided the best route. Can an irregularly updated blog generate enough traffic and engagement from others? Should I move to a more Instapundit-like format of short links with only the occasional column-length post? Can I manage to create some daily aggregator that provides a value not covered by Daily Beast’s Cheat Sheet, The Slatest, Drudge, memeorandum, RealClearPolitics, or the New York Times’s Idea of the Day?

I don’t know yet. But I know I can’t hold off writing for much longer.

I’ll be tinkering with 2parse and other ideas over the summer, so don’t be surprised with some changes in format or irregular posting…

  • We don’t have the rhetoric of “illegals” to refer to people who drive illegally fast, or to jaywalkers…http://bit.ly/cwDeR4 #
