Longer form blogs have been something I've never really put much thought into. When I was younger on the internet the focus was already on images and fandom content rather than a teenager ranting about conservatives.
Now it's a dance between opinions and a professional image. Not revealing so much that it would hurt employment, unless you stay completely anonymous. However if you have something successful it could be a positive in terms of employment. Aka capitalism sucks.
Also you have topical blogs about one thing or another and there my tendency to jump to a new hyper focus every couple of months kind of puts a damper on that. I can't commit to any one kind of content because it just feels restrictive. but otherwise what else is there? Just my lovely personality?
meta sidenote: still can't figure out how to look at other blogs on writefree.ly and not sure if that's an option yet.
