Just after the New Year, I started a new blog, with a slightly more focused approach. It’s a “reading log,” and I named it myrtias. Early in the process, I explained the name and outlined some hopes and plans
The reasons for this are numerous: I wanted to commit to a more serious, intellectually rewarding form of blogging, but I didn’t want this blog to be it, since I love sharing amusing bits of ephemera. I found myself not posting particularly silly bits, since I wanted to be more serious, but also not finding this space to be sufficiently focused for my scholarly pretensions. Now that I can make clear distinctions in purpose, I will hopefully feel more free and focused.
With this is mind, here’s how I’m hoping to divide the spoils:
- videos, music, general web-ephemera
- fascinating bits of data, scientific or otherwise
- photos and comics
- things humorous and clever
- movie reviews and news
- other general matters of culture
- book reviews
- quotations from my non-web reading material
- criticism and analysis of literature and literary matters
I hope you keep reading “edwardhenry,” and dip into “myrtias” if that’s your thing. Thanks!
(Also, as you’ve surely noticed, I found a theme I like, and a nice header as well — which I can change whenever I have the hankering).
