• I’m rebooting my blog

    • I would have blogged more in the past, but it took too much time
    • I also find reading blogs takes too much time
    • Long format prose is unneeded overhead for what I want to read and write
  • When I want to fully absorb long format prose, I outline it

    • In almost all cases, I have found well-written prose outlines well
    • Such outlines typically end up as a series of ordered lists for each paragraph
    • Unfortunately, translation into such an outline is time consuming
  • When I want to write great long format prose, I outline it

    • Such outlines keep my arguments structured
    • Going from outline to prose muddles facts, necessitating lexical gotos
    • For never-to-be-spoken, fact-driven text, lexical gotos seem atavistic
  • From now on, my blog posts will be published as outlines

    • No ceremonious translation for me
    • No laborious fact seeking for you
    • More time for both of us
