Dave Winer writes about how his homemade blog software, Old School, works. He’s an outliner guy and it’s based on outlines. It suits him and his style perfectly.
What I admire about Winer’s writing is that it’s simple. Partly because he’s thinking in outlines, some posts may only be a sentence. It’s like his ‘traditional’ blog and a micro blog rolled into one. I like this style a lot.
That is why for a couple weeks I’ve been playing with doing something similar myself. Some of the items I’ve written I wouldn’t mind having on the site front page. Others are more like journal posts: abysmally boring, even for the author. I need to figure out what I want it to be and where, or if, I want it to appear.
