Unlike most sites that use blogging software, I use mine simply because it's the easiest way to post the content I write (even if upgrading is a pain in the neck). Ditto for Gavin's The Framing Business.
This afternoon, with nothing much better to do, I created a new category and posted some rather old pieces of 'prose'. Among the pieces were two from 2001. Since I wrote them in 2001, and I actually care about the date I associate with content, I marked them as being written when they were first written; April and May of 2001.
The fact of the matter is, I write my pieces because I want to be able to refer back to them; I want to know what I was thinking at a particular point in time, and using my writings is a good way to see that.
For example, approximately a year ago, I was looking at Attention Trust. Interestingly enough, a couple days ago I finally updated the Firefox add-on (for whatever reason, it wasn't checking for a new version - perhaps it was just looking at the wrong spot). Also interestingly, I was unable to login to my ROOT vault again ...
Most of what I write I write for a reason, and most of what I write I'll want to be able to go back to in the future. Granted, I don't write every day, but that's something I'd really like to change. Every day, either take pictures, or write.
