I first started my site in 2005 and added to it gradually over the years. By 2017, it became very outdated and difficult to update. In the process of a complete website refresh, I had a chance to go over my old journal entries and laugh at all the things that preoccupied me. My old blog was a mix of broad musings, creative writing excerpts, travel entries, political arguments, and life updates. Going forward, I’m going to use this blog primarily for four main purposes.
- Review/summary of books recently finished – I’m not going to review the books that I’ve already read, unless I re-read again
- Review/summary of notable films, video, or media worth watching
- Posting of speeches and content that I’ve created for events and conferences
- Review/quick summary (not detailed) of travel destinations
