posts per month to this blog

This year I went through a bit of a slump in posting to this blog: I was involved in a coding project which in the end turned out to be essentially unsuccessful since I had issues with dealing with the Strava API I was unable to resolve, and other priorities took over. In any case, I still had things I wanted to say here, so went back to posting after the slump.

Here's my accumulated posts each year, by month, since I started way back in 2008:
posting per month

I'm never sure for how long I'll go on with this, but I find it personally valuable to go back and see what my perceptions and feelings were at various points in the past. For example, 2008 was when I first started running after a long, long delay, and I like going back and reading race reports I posted then. Or I refer to equations I derived relating factors such as mass, aerodynamics, and rolling resistance to cycling speed.

I'll stick to it to some degree as long as I find it valuable. Facebook and Twitter, which have largely replaced blogging as an activity, don't do this nearly as well.

If it helps, I find your blog really valuable. I fondly remember the analyses/speculation of the Metrigear Vector days, and I've also used one or two race reports of yours to get an idea of what I was getting myself into.

Not much like this on Facebook/Twitter, and forum threads (where good information can sometimes be found as well) are often deeply buried in obscurity, so I'd say there's a place for blogs.

(easy for me to say, when my own activities are currently fairly dormant)
