Today my blog post is to tell you about my other blog...

Posted by: Jeremy Reimer on Tue Jan 15 23:27:18 2013.

I’m trying to expand my efforts in book marketing, and much of that involves fumbling around trying things at random, hoping that something works out.

To that end I’ve started a blog at GoodReads, which you can read here:http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/6479441.Jeremy_Reimer/blog

This brings up the number of blogs I have to three: my personal blog, the newLISP on Rockets blog, and now my GoodReads blog. Once JetCondo.com gets going that will increase to four. It seems a bit weird, like casting a wide net in hopes that someone reads at least ONE of my blogs, but in truth I never felt that comfortable talking about everything in one place. I have a lot of things on the go, especially now, but they aren’t all connected. People interested in my science fiction probably don’t care too much to learn about newLISP, for example.

So after the end of this week, I might actually stop blogging every day on my personal blog, and alternate between the the three instead.

Stop pretending blogs are made of paper

Here’s my pet peeve of the day: Blogs that say things like: "Find out the answer after the fold" or "More after the jump".

YOU ARE A WEB PAGE. THERE IS NO FOLD. THERE IS NO JUMP. If I want to continue reading, I will continue reading. Maybe I’ll have to scroll down. If I care enough, I will. I’ve never once gone to a blog and thought to myself: "Well, this wasn’t interesting enough to keep reading, but I have to find out what’s after that jump!" What the hell is a jump, anyway?

Oh, you put a stupid ad to break up your content? Is that what you meant? Wow, I’ve almost lost interest in your page now. Oh look, there’s the "Close" button on the tab. I wonder what happens if I press that?

About me

I'm a writer and a web developer. You may have read my articles at Ars Technica, where I write about the Amiga computer, video games such Starcraft, and the history of personal computing.

I write science fiction novels and short stories. You can read more about them here.

I'm also the creator of the rapid application development framework newLISP on Rockets, which powers this blog and a number of other sites.

I do a podcast with my friend Terry Palfrey called Knotty Geeks, where we focus on the 'big picture' impact of technology on our lives, with the two core themes being acceleration and convergence.
