I Post Daily, and I Am Proud

Over at the WordPress.com, The Daily Post blog offers responses from other #postaday2011 participants here: Post a Day Participants Have Much to be Proud of.

I think committing to a post a day has been a positive choice on my part. I have been writing more on my blog, and I have been writing a greater variety of things–including different subject matter and employing different modes of posting (short, medium, and long posts–each with strengths and challenges for me as a blogger).

As a result of my commitment to #postaday2011, I have posted well over 100 new posts since January 1, 2011 for an overall total of 817 posts! This is obviously more than one post per day. I have found that my writing more on my blog has led me to using my blog more often in general. Additionally, I have found it useful to work though ideas or simply to remind myself of interesting things that I find online for later reference.

I consider blogging a tool to enrich my own thinking and to contribute to the wider discourse. As a tool, my blog has changed over time to meet new needs and demands for myself and those who find their way here across the virtual expanses of the Internet. For example, the kinds of posts that you will find on dynamicsubspace.net now will differ from my first, because the way I use blogging and the purposes behind my blogging have changed over time. The size and shape of posts have changed. The content that I write has also changed based on the things I see in the world and on my current research interests.

It should also be said that blogging is fun, at least it is for me. I think that writing, particularly in a public setting, is constructive to the development of the individual and a contribution to knowledge available online. I will keep on blogging, and I hope that I continue to do wonderful things with dynamicsubspace.net.

I am a professor of English at the New York City College of Technology, CUNY whose teaching includes composition and technical communication, and research focuses on 20th/21st-century American culture, science fiction, neuroscience, and digital technology.
