I started blogging 15 years ago. There's value in writing something longer, with actual paragraphs and bigger thoughts. It's easier to read and find older blog posts. And because they take longer to put together, blog posts feel less disposable compared to Tweets.
I didn't realize it until just now that I hadn't updated my blog in over a month. Initially I started this to showcase my work somewhere online - a backup I could call upon when I met people or went to conferences and was asked to give examples of my work without having to pull out my hard-copy portfolio. But now that I've updated with the shorter entry on Wayson Choy, there are a couple things I've learned that I think are worth repeating.
