Things I post that people seem to enjoy:

  • Original stuff I write or photograph
  • Memes, vintage ads, and other found media from the Internet.

On the other hand, very few people seem to care about links to articles, and I’m starting to get a strong “what’s the point?” feeling about my doing that kind of thing. I started linkblogging 15 or so years ago, when social media was very different and my boosting the signal–even in a small way–seemed to matter.

I will continue to post links to my own articles, but what’s the point of my posting a link to an article on The Washington Post, The Atlantic, or even to articles by people like Cory Doctorow and John Gruber who are a hundred times more widely read than I am?
