Dusting off the blog - one more time

It has been quite some time since I published anything on my personal blog. And I miss(ed) it.

It has been an on/off relationship

When you look at my archived posts you’ll see that it was (and eventually is) and on/off relationship with me and my blog. The blog exists for 12 years now. Which, in hindsight, sounds a bit crazy to me.

And now, here I am again. After a really long pause I figured it is time for me to go back to writing. And it is not that I didn’t do that over the last years. On my work blog you will find a bunch of articles.

Now, not everything I do or tinker with fits on that blog. And why I could have put things earlier (or at all), I didn’t. The good thing is that I actually figured for myself that I should do it again. Because when something was valuable to me - why shouldn’t it also be valuable to someone else, right?

Explore more about that in the WHY of this blog.

Writing or vlogging

These days it is everything about digital content. Something that is not new for the industry that I work on. But just in the last 12 months it became a lot.

Personally I’ve to say that I didn’t embrace all digital yet for myself. There is only a certain amount of time in a day where I actually have time to listen to podcasts, watch videos, or read some text/blog. And eventually it adds on that there are now more online meetings than ever before. Screen-fatigue can be real - even for myself, having been remote since 2008.

Which brings me back to the title of this section - “writing or vlogging”. I will re-start this blog primarily with writing. And I will want to experiment (no promises) to inject sometimes just some short videos. Sometimes with text, sometimes as is. We will see where that goes.

And no worries. It won’t be long videos. My personal attention span for that is low, so they will (or should be) short and crisp.

Anyway. That’s it. Hope to see you here again at some point.
