One of the intents behind this blog was so that I could learn.   To be honest I’m still not sure what I’ll learn from it in the long run, but I have learned something over the past few months:  My intended scope for this blog is too narrow.  In fact, it’s so narrow that most of my posts don’t even fall within that scope.  The original scope was to be an outlet for my creative energy, preferably in the form of articles written about various things I create.  Physical things, like a desk lamp.  The problem is, I guess I don’t create those sorts of things as much as I imagined I might.  It could easily take a year or more to complete one project, and I try to only have 2-3 concurrent projects.  2-3 posts per year doesn’t really justify having a whole blog dedicated to that subject.  I need more like 2-3 per week.

So I’m changing the scope.  In a sense I did from day one, I just didn’t acknowledge it.  So from here on out, it’s just going to be a “personal” blog, in which way I’ll be able to post anything that I think is worth posting.  Hopefully somewhere along the way I’ll figure out what I like to write about that people also enjoy reading about, and then we’ll all be better for it.

This is more of a mental shift for me than a dramatic change for the blog, since I’m basically just seeing what my blog has become, and realizing that since almost every post is “off topic” then I should just change the topic.  So here goes for a sort of directional Darwinism.  I’ll write what I feel like, see what’s most popular, and then try and expand in that respective direction.

That’s it.  Enjoy!
