I am going to venture a new approach this week. Not that the old approach wasn’t “working” — as there never was a stated goal to “work” towards — but I know that it’s uncommon, unpopular, and unwise to deliver such long entries on the Internet; that most people look to the web for nuggets and scraps to fill minutes between meetings and groans, or breakfast and toilet, while entrusting magazines, newspapers, books, and religious pamphlets with lengthy, involved writing; that more frequent and shorter posts would please some of my friends; and that tangled 19th century-style sentences riddled with semicolons have no future in an era when style is dominated by marketing tactics used to cajole ditzes and nincompoops. Basta. SO: I am going to split what could be long entries into series of shorter blurts, spaced over time instead of presented all at once. We’ll see how it goes.
After you’ve been exposed to both approaches, if you would like to, feel free to tell me which you prefer by emailing: aftercheese @ gmail.com.
