Going All In On The Dent and Micro.Blog

If you follow me on Twitter, chances are you’ve been annoyed by me at some point over the last few weeks as I constantly debate about where I should blog (Wordpress or micro.blog) and even about which name I should blog under.

I appreciate this is a touch annoying, and very self-serving, so apologies for this. Some thank you’s, however, are also in order. Quite a few people, such as Daryl Baxter and Jeff Perry, amongst others, have essentially told me to stop talking about it and just get on with writing so that’s exactly what I intend to do. I’ll still only be writing when I have something to say, so frequency won’t necessarily increase, but some things will change, namely:

  • Despite deciding to stick to The Dent as the name of this blog, it’s going to be a more personal site. I want a place to share (and retain control over) the iPhone photography I take occasionally and I want to, when the mood takes me, speak about things outside of tech, like films, games, and anything else that takes my fancy.
  • I’m going to post a mixture of long(ish) form posts, photography, short form pieces (like the excellent Lee Peterson (not Patterson!) and also micro blog posts (think short tweet like messages.
  • Most importantly I’m just going to take it for what it is. A small hobby involving me sharing a few thoughts onto the internet that 99.9% of the people who come across it will not be interested. For the 0.01% that do enjoy it, great, but I’ll also be enjoying it and will have a nice archive to look back on over the years.

I made a bit of a mistake and recently initiated a transfer of my domain from Wordpress to Hover, so it’s going to take a week or so until The Dent is live again, so please bear with me.

If you’re interested in why I finally decided on using Micro.Blog over Wordpress I’ll share another short post about that tomorrow.

For now, thanks for reading and I hope I can share something that’ll be of interest you over the coming days, weeks, months and dare I say years.
