I’ve decided to import here the three articles I’ve posted on Medium since 2013, given my will to preserve my (poor) writing when / if the platform will close or will make a move that I’ll find unbearable.
Here they are:
please place any idea worth more than 280 characters and the value Twitter places on them (which is zero) on a blog that you own and/or can easily take your important/valuable/life-changing ideas with you and make them easy for others to read and share.
Today I intended to write on something else, but then Patrick wrote this and surpassed my idea (which, by the way, somehow was in topic).
The best way to become a better writer is to read more and not just about a single subject matter. Why? Reading is the best way to generate new ideas. Every person has a different perspective on life. This comes from different experiences, cultural ideas, values, etc. You know things I don’t know. You can make connections I can’t make. By reading, you are allowing these unique connections to flourish, which can make you a better writer.
Thanks to Luca for the reference.
It’s been two days since my last post. In the meantime I am tweaking some setting of this WordPress.com powered blog, and also actively editing my posts.
I’ve still get a grasp on the uncategorized post’s Category which today still counts 189 items coming from the Posterous contet import. It was indeed a powerful platform, given how easy was to add content. They’ve lasted in business 4 years, before getting acquired by Twitter.
Also, I do wonder if people or just the search engine bots are aware of this editing activities, or if I shouldn’ care and let it go. After all I’m into the thirteenth year of blogging here and the web it’s like the sea: always in movement, changing…
This morning I had some free time (waiting for an important email to make further action), and I decided to play a little with this Twenty Seventeen WordPress theme from Automattic.
This is being said as a ‘business oriented’ template, and my try is to play a little with it to enhance my personal branding effort to the English speaking audience.
So in the next few hours if you come by via a browser you could see things changing under your eyes. Please forgive this curious kid playing 😉
