Okay, I have to face it: The idea to use a blog to spark advancement in my research didn’t work too well. I guess I wasn’t after it enough to actually lead to something useful and by now my work has diverted from those few original posts anyways.
Actually I have arrived at this conclusion quite some time ago already, but I was unsure what to do with this dead end here. Should I delete it? But what about the off chance that somebody actually linked to this, or stumbles on hints about it in some other context? Even if the probability of that is low, I didn’t want to just delete it and leave some obscure void behind.
So after thinking about it in circles for several months I guess the only thing I can do is write a final post about it and then do something different with the blog.
Lately there have been some thoughts from my private, not work-related life that I thought might deserve being put to paper. Er, to digital writing…
Knowing me that doesn’t mean my posting frequency would necessarily increase at all, but from now on I will at least have a theoretical place to put this stuff.
In the future this blog might (or might not, as I said I know me…) get posts about personal stuff. Random rants about internet life (cause I’m a dork), roleplaying or even anime. I might even write in German for family and non-English speaking friends (some actually asked about this, believe it or not).
I won’t delete the initial few posts, but I guess if I really do go through with writing about hobby stuff they will eventually be pushed back enough to vanish in comparison to the rest.
