Anything but another blog

How I got here

I started my journey into blogging almost 6 years ago as a 2 bit blogger ranting about politics on blogspot.  As a unrepentant geek I soon discovered a passion for writing about technology. A few name changes and a few thousand hours later and I’ve built a little tech blog called KnowtheNetwork.com

<shamelessplug> tech, social media, business networks and more go there </endshamelessplug>

The problem with building a blog around a topic like technology and social media is that as your audience grows you no longer have a personal blog. The expectations of your readers win out. It’s an awesome problem to encounter but I miss having a personal blog.

I need another blog like I need a hole in the head

So I solved this problem with little blogs scattered everywhere

  • a Mobile/Personal blog on Posterous
  • an interesting-things-I-find blog on Tumblr
  • a political blog
  • an the most recent addition – a family blog

It has just become too much, so I’m simplifying things and creating a space once again for just me and my voice.

So what will KeithCrawford.me be?

Me.

My life, thoughts, faith, family, and ramblings about becoming a Dad, a better husband, and striving to be a better me. This will take the place of my mobile blog and family blog but beyond the simplification I once again to have an opportunity to just write. I’m happy about that.
