Welcome to my collection of memos!
It’s not exactly like a normal blog, so before complaining “wow, this article is weirdly specific and not applicable at all,” check the Target Audience field:
- General memos are written for everyone
- Narrow memos are generally me working something out or documenting something for myself, but which others may find interesting
- Personal memos are written for me
You are probably now wondering why not just have a normal blog? Well, I did. I’ve had several. My problem with blogging is that I feel like every post needs to be interesting, polished, and generally to a high standard. I like reading such blogs, so surely my blog should be the same, right? The problem is that this creates a lot of pressure, and leads to me barely ever updating the damn thing.
But this website is a collection of articles I have written and published, right? Isn’t that just a blog? Well maybe I am just deceiving myself by calling these articles “memos” rather than “blog posts,” but I am now writing more, and writing for myself in addition to writing for others.
So overall it is a good deception.
