This blog started as a way to document (mainly for myself) things I learned. I listen to podcasts during my commute. It is a great way to make the (long?) commute enjoyable.
But the problem was that I could not take quick notes while driving. So I made a point to jot down whatever I could as soon as I reach the destination. At first I noted it down into evernote, and then formatted it for this blog.
But after a while, I got busy and didn't get time to prettify my notes.
Then after few months, I came across Sacha Chua's Blog where she talks about :
So once again I have decided to blog more often without spending too much time beautifying the post (and focusing more on contents)
Recently, I came across this post which talks about “lowering the psychological barrier to writing, by focusing on short, simple, technical posts, rather then essays”
It resonates with my thoughts ;)
Why Do I have Galleries here ?
I agree, that based on what I said above, Galleries do not belong here.
Reason is simple. I initially started using Nikola as my blogging engine (SSG). It had decent support for the galleries. Around the same time, I started sketching, and needed a place “of my own” to display those.
Yes, I also have instagram account, but I have been bitten too many times when the only source was a third party site, that went away.
No, I don't think instagram will go away soon. Too much in the future ? Who knows.
But why take chance ? Better (also) host it on your own site.
