[META] On Blogging, 2006 edition

Last New Year's Day I started an abortive series of posts about the mechanics of blogging. That series died, of course, by February at the latest. Lately, I've begun to think about the mechanics of blogging, and my blogging style, for two reasons in particular.

1. A friend has recently posted about how his use of LiveJournal has changed in the past four years, the changes in his writings tracking his evolution as a person. This is clearly the case with me--rfmcdpei tracks quite closely my evolution from, in May 2002, a rather scared and isolated young man who still lived with his parents to what it is now, a largely non-personal blog devoted to broader issues about the interactions of cultures. Where will I head next? I've no idea. If you want to leave suggestions, feel free to do so.

2. Thanks to erins_pub's suggestions and her kind Christmas gift of Julia Cameron's The Artist's Way, I've decided to join the Blogging the Artist's Way online program organized by Kat at the Kat's Paw blog.

Let's see what happens.
