This portfolio site is the #1 Google result for my name. This month I've started a reconstruction blog here.
It's going to be the blog that would have existed if I'd known then what I know now.
...if I'd been telling my personal and pro story all along with today's perspective on where it leads, and what matters.
Few little edits, but mostly going in as it already exists. Later I'll start linking all the pieces together, and developing further some of the content.
I'm also pulling together my material that's been scattered around the web, plus adding unseen pieces that germinated in the dark social of email, and in general, bringing out unpublished and otherwise fallow pieces of all kinds.
I'm thinking it'll be a way to refresh my own interest, and, with the help of web search, eventually connect me with others who are interested in those topics or treatments. They may even be future collaborators to bring the work to fruition. A public filing cabinet of sorts.
Have you tried this, or another retrospective approach to building a blog?
