A small blog neighborhood hiding in plain sight

For as long as I can remember, I’ve tweeted every blog post. As an experiment, I didn’t do that with this one. As a result, WordPress tells me that relatively few people have read it. But I’m not monetizing pageview counters here, why do I care? The interaction with those who did read that item was pleasant.

So, the experiment continues. Some items here, like this one, can enjoy a more intimate space than others, simply by not announcing themselves on Twitter. A small blog neighborhood hiding in plain sight.

  1. Ah, interaction … #ContinuousPartialAttention haunts me.
    What if “we few, we lucky few” sustain our discourse (or at least discussion) exceptionally? Sets the stage for something like Hesse’s “Magister Ludi”. (Glasperlenspiel inspired me deeply, mid-1960s, as a kid. As did the fact that such as Library of Alexandria once existed.)

    p.s.1 I accidentally closed this tab before I had finished. With a silent prayer to the gods of Mozilla, I hit “Undo Close” and yupperz … the text re-appeared.
    p.s.2 I forget … does WordPress support markup in Comments?

  2. ah, but those of us still enjoying the benefits of reading-via-rss don’t need the noise of twitter to find your writing, Jon. ;-)
