As my readers (both of them) may have noticed, I’ve not been very good about keeping up with my daily “dear diary”-type posts. I started this little project back in February as a way to make myself write something every day. I’ve pretty consistently failed to do that of late, and as I consider the reasons for that I can only conclude that I just don’t find it interesting.
While I do work for a Free Software company, my work is largely covered by NDA. Largely enough that I don’t feel comfortable even sharing little nonspecific bits of my work on a day-to-day basis because I don’t know if the aggregate could be considered a violation. This eliminates the most interesting part of most days, leaving me with a huge content gap between breakfast and dinner five days a week. I do often attend fun events and do fun things in the evenings, but not enough to really make most days interesting to write about. I’m sure they’re no more interesting to read about.
Additionally, I’ve found that since most of my daily scribblings were one or two sentences per topic anyway, they’re better suited for my StatusNet site, where posting has less intellectual overhead (it’s the same amount of typing/clicking work, but it feels like less of a hassle to post over there).
So, this marks the end of my promise to myself to post something here every day. This site will live on, however, and I may even post something attention-worthy from time to time.
