Why keep a blog in 2019?

I decided to build this site as a place to organize and publish my thoughts. While I will occasionally share posts on Twitter, I do not intend for this to be a regular occurrence. This is mainly a self-oriented exercise for thinking and prioritizing aspects of my life.

My objectives:

  1. Practice writing
    Turning abstract thoughts into text always seems easier than it sounds. I think I’m ok at this - but I know there’s room for improvement.
  2. Proactive thinking
    Writing forces you to think through ideas and form deeper arguments. As an added bonus, it will be convenient to send someone a URL with my thoughts already prepared.
  3. Document learning:
    I am always learning via experiences, books, and conversations. It’s one of my core Principles. Organizing everything into one place will be invaluable for future reference.

Last thing - if anything I write catches your interest, please reach out. My Twitter DMs are open.
