Blogging SxSW 2006
I’m long overdue for an entry of any sort, and though I’ve been promising (and intending) to post more regularly, for many reasons it hasn’t happened. I’m hoping SxSW will provide a jump-start of sorts to my will and incentive to write about design, the web, web applications, usability, and all those fun things I used to devote quite a bit of time to on this site.
So, here are the goals I’m setting for myself — I’m trying to keep them realistic, since getting back into writing is a lot like getting back into a workout routine when you’ve fallen off the fitness wagon: it’s best to start slow and easy, with lighter weights and fewer reps, otherwise you might hurt yourself (or at the least become depressed at how wimpy you have become thanks to your hiatus…). And don’t forget to stretch…
Blogging Goals for SxSW
- Keep it brief (this is my first SxSW, I’m expecting to be overwhelmed, and only having to think about short posts should reduce the pressure)
- Write about the people (the web is about the people who use it, and who create it — ditto for SxSW, and this will help me focus more on the people I meet over these next few days)
- Take pictures. Lots of them. (ok, this isn’t directly related to writing for SB, but hey, I could win an iPod nano)
- Blog at least once a day (time doesn’t just fall in your lap for this sort of thing, so I’m going to force myself to make time every day)
- Meet all the goals stated above (um… duh)
I’m looking forward to meeting everyone at SxSW — but since that’s nearly impossible, if you’re in Austin this week, post a comment here and I’ll try to meet up with you… all of you.
