Writing here recently about diary writing and journaling, it struck me that I’d overlooked a very important aspect.
Google has made the act of researching material for journalism so much simpler. The same can be said for fiction, too, although you might approach that in a different way. But while a search engine is useful, it’s not ideal for daily, regular searches on similar topics.
I’m on air this morning, dropping in at Zetland FM to discuss the latest technology topics with Julie Donaldson in my guise as The Gadget Monkey. In future, I’ll share the links here on the site to the Mixcloud.com recording of my appearance (stay tuned for that later today) but in the meantime, some thoughts on how I prepare.
It recently occurred to me that that time I’ve put aside to write a diary for the past 12 months — since January 1st 2016 — could just as easily have been used to talk a bit more right here.
So I’ve decided to do both.
I could be playing a videogame. Or I could be revising Aliens vs Nazis for the 90th time.
