Blogging as a Mode of Thinking

I’ve updated my WordPress blog software to version 4.9 and in doing so thought I would try their latest default theme. So the website looks a little different but all the content is the same as it was last week.

While doing the update I messed up something with the server permissions and everyone was locked out. This is something of a test post to check we’re back to normal.

Over on another eponymous blog, Austin Kleon writes about his experiment in daily blogging. This observation feels true to me:

I had forgotten how wonderful blogging is as a mode of thinking. Blogging is, for me, more about discovering what I have to say, and tweeting more about having a thought, then saying it the right way.

Indeed. Blogging is iterative writing.

Meanwhile, Matt Yglesias considers what he would do with $450 million if he wasn’t spending it on a Leonardo.

Some of us are already living that dream, Matt.
