The answer to the passive consumption of trash is the active formulation of questions, the active search for answers and the active work of putting complex knowledge and diffuse feelings into clear words. Unlike getting fed from those feeds, searching, researching, reflecting, and concise writing has the power to clear the mind. We need to write on our own domains. Don’t post thoughts on Facebook. Use it to get traffic. Drop Medium for blogging. Own your writing. Use Twitter carefully. And on your domain, send people to other domains you like, outside the usual black holes, if possible.

So happy to see Oliver Reichenstein posting over at ia.net again.
There seems to be a weak undercurrent of old and young bloggers like us that feel sentimental or curious and want to bring back blogging. Blogging won’t save the world. But, hell, after two weeks now, we can confirm: it feels great to be back on the blogging line.

2018 is the return of the personal blog. #newwwyear is a hashtag started by Jen Simmons with people redesigning their blogs or even starting one, like myself.
For now I’ve removed all the CSS and just have a loop to display posts. Day by day I’m going to build it back up.
