Directions in Blogging

When I started “Writing Early Blackface,” my idea was to write short, snappy, and frequent posts that were not much longer than my twitter contributions.

But that has NOT happened at all!

I became obsessed with synthesizing and the result was that many of my posts are 200-600 word range with “Mysteries of the Democrats” stretching out to 1600. IMHO, “Mysteries of the Democrats” was a quality post and a growth experience to write, but I can’t sustain that kind of writing on a daily basis while also continuing to work on my book manuscript.

So, what I’m going to be shooting for in the future is a mix of short and longish cultural and political takes along with more entries on my efforts to write a book manuscript on the transformation of white population culture in ante-bellum Philadelphia.
