Stuff Not Blogged

A future blog post here will cover — as thoroughly as I can manage — my old and dormant blogs. I have had a bunch.

I'm too tired to do a post that detailed and careful tonight. Instead, I want to talk about a weird side thing I've been doing.

One thing I learned long ago is to carefully read anything I am about to post on the Interwebs to make sure it actually belongs there. I think think twice and then often cut once. Since 2006, I have saved some 440 files, 109,000 words of text that I wrote and then "threw away". Most anything complex is there.

109,000 words is a lot. I have no idea how it piled up like that.

I keep all of this in a directory called blog. The intent is that I go back and mine it for future blog posts.

Someday I'll do that. For today, just thought I'd point out what might be a bit of a novel approach.
