Eight hundred posts 

Considering it took me just over a year to do 600 posts on this blog, getting to 800 last night seems like I have slowed down. But when you work out that I have done 600 on my Vox blog as of today, then I probably haven’t.
   The Vox blog is great for the casual, throwaway posts, as well as some in rougher shape. The more work-related and thought-out ones come here. In neither case are the posts in what I would call properly researched journalistic shape.
   I have had moments of regret blogging: the time the blog takes away from my other interests, and from my email. But this year, with more balance in my life and knowing that this is here to serve me rather than vice versa, I like to think I am blogging at a comfortable level.
   I know that if I stuck to blogging like Hugh MacLeod or Robert Scoble have—and in the first few months there were signs that I could rival the masters on frequency—I could have built up some fairly substantial traffic, but that’s not my purpose.
   My aim, when I think about it, was to record thoughts about my work and some of the theories behind it.
   And a lot of those theories have not suddenly changed since 2006, hence there is less of a need to constantly post the principles. I do, as people who have worked for me will tell you, hate repeating myself.
   I hope the pace is right for those of you who subscribe to this blog via RSS and for those who visit on a regular basis.
   In 2008, I cannot predict what my rate of will be, but you can look forward to the casual stuff at Vox and the Lucire-specific stuff at the Lucire website. I like to think that I have settled into a good range of subjects here for those of you following this blog since ’06.
   Feedback is, of course, always welcome.

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
