All my blog posts – such as they are – are now at my website on micro.blog.
I have come to the conclusion that I hate the bloated mess that WordPress has become. I feel like I have to relearn it every time I post here. Also I am increasingly interested in the so-called small web movement, which seeks to de-clutter the web and return it to a world where, when you search for something, you don’t get served an endless list of sponsored content, AI generated drivel or tracker-bloated pages.
So I have now moved all my blogging to a much simpler platform called micro.blog. It kind of does what it says on the tin. So far I am enjoying the experience: it feels a bit more like the old days
I’m also on mastodon, where I occasionally post stuff, and also where you can see latest updates to the blog. I don’t know if I’ll post any more frequently there, but you never know.
The other thing is that I have now closed down virtually all my accounts with the main social media providers. I’m not on Facebook or Twitter, and my Instagram account is dormant. I’m not dogmatic about this – you do you – but I’ð rather not participate in a place which views me as a product. If you’re interested in any of this, I’d recommend reading Jaron Lanier’s excellent book: Ten Arguments for Deleting your Social Media Accounts Right Now .
