Blogging, time, and traffic

The blog postings on I Lamont have been pretty sparse for the past few weeks, and there are several reasons why.

The first reason: Time. I am already busy with work and family, and I've been working on a graduate degree in history (specifically, modern Chinese history) for the past four and a half years. My final class -- Survey of Publishing: From Text to Hypertext -- just started, and once again my evening hours are devoted to study.

The second reason: Traffic. I've been publishing technology-related blog posts on my Computerworld blog more frequently. These posts get a lot more traffic and responses, thanks to Google News and links from other parts of Computerworld.com. I write about virtual reality and virtual worlds because I am interested in them. But if I have a chance to reach a larger audience, I'll take it, even if it means the content appears elsewhere.

I'll try to make a few references to those Computerworld blog posts throughout the fall and winter, but don't expect frequent entries. Once my class ends in January, I'll try to get back to a normal posting schedule on I Lamont.
