I’ve been thinking about where we’re going next — thus no regular blog post this week.
I’m pretty sure I’m going to dump my self-imposed target of 850 words per post and my goal to post once a week. Most likely go longer and less often. Maybe I’ll post simultaneously somewhere else– maybe Medium. Also stop writing only as an archivist, quoting other people; instead synthesize ideas into my own words.
Stuff like that….
It will take awhile for me to reorganize, and I don’t want to rush. In the meantime, I’ve been brainstorming new article titles:
The Gospel of Fraud: why we keep making excuses for broken promises
The Plague of Cheerfulness: why the power of positive thinking needs to be an idea whose time came and went
The Ethics of Believing Anything You Want — and teaching others to believe it with you
More More More is Better — the Wannabe Economy keeps upping the ante, and we keep paying it
The House Always Wins — why we keep throwing good money after bad in the high-risk self-help game
Science and Snake Oil — and why we keep swallowing it
It’s Not Your Fault — the idea that you’re totally responsible for your own life destroys you and warps your view of the world
Believing is About Believing — that’s all we get, and why we’re okay with that
Thanks for following, thanks for reading. I’ll be back.
