In-House Matters

I'm keenly aware my blogging has been, as lawyers are wont to say, de minimis of late.

I was going to put up a post about how this blog might have to move more towards an Innocents Abroad model (in terms of frequency of posting--that fine blog tends to post new material at a more stately pace than many, B.D. included).

But while I have a demanding day job (typically 10-12 hours a day as GC of a financial services company) I, like others around the blogosphere, appear to be a blogaholic of sorts.

So despite the long work hours (and very frequent travel) I will often try to fit in a blog post at least daily. And I'm reticent to stop doing so now.

That said, I don't want to "post just to post." While I am aware that "freshness" is important in this medium--I am wary of sacrificing quality content merely for the sake of putting something new up daily.

All this to say, for the time being, I plan to continue to post whenever I feel I have the requisite time to say something that I believe merits being read (read, that is, by more than just myself and a few assorted high school buddies!)--interspersed with the obligatory news updates that I typically accompany with short quips and such.

Finally, I should note I am moving off blogspot. While it has been working better of late (though I gather my site was down for a while recently), I neverthless want to try out MT, put in a search function, check out new font colors/sizes, maybe occasionally open up comments, organize my archives by topics, and so on.

So I've got someone working on a blog redesign. Go check it out.

Feedback from friends has been uneven. Some say the map logo is lame and that it looks boring. Some really like it. So, if you can spare a second, give me your feedback too.

I'm either going to simply export the current blog (with a few subtle font/color changes) to MT so that the basic look remains the same.

Or I will move to some variant of the blog redesign I've linked above. So please help me decide which way to go!

Back with substantive posts soon. And thanks in advance for any feedback.
