I’ve always wanted to write a tech blog. I’ve tried a few times over the years, never with much success. Success, however, isn’t about readership so much as me wanting to write about it. Being interested enough in how I use technology not just to tell other people about it, but to write it down myself. To make that effort. I write Stop Button and Comics Fondle because I like writing about comics and movies. I write Summing-Up to force myself to write Summing-Up and to think about blog writing as my daily writing, not an addition to it. It’s my output. I need to identify how it works to best develop it. But tech writing gets boring. The idea of doing game reviews? I don’t care. How do you even format game titles? Italics? Bold? Quotation marks? What’s ALA say, Turabian, Chicago, MLA, whatever. I don’t want to think about it. Disliking video games cost Ebert cred, which I love, but if you’re going to stand them up to be judged as narratives, as experiences… well, it’s a lot. And I don’t use many apps. I have my standards, which I tend to love too long, but I’m not with the hand-holding of modern apps. Maybe if they produced better results. But some geekery is clearly necessary, because people are back to composing in Word, another sign the good guys lost.
