Well, drat

Peter Merholz has announced that he’s mothballed his site while he comes up with a new focus and a new design for it. He also says he’s not going to be blogging anymore. This is not a good thing. Especially since he claims to be one of the first to use the word “blog”. I always look forward to reading what Peter has to say, even if he only says a couple of things a week. Actually, his site is one of the ones that makes me feel okay about letting my own site go a couple of days without an update (as happened this weekend). If I don’t have anything to write about, then I don’t. Last month I think I skipped a whole week. And it’s sites like Peter’s that reassure me that it’s “okay” to do that. Now, I guess all he can reassure me about is that it’s okay to mothball my site if I want. Which I don’t plan on doing.

The one piece of good news in this announcement is that he says his future plans include more essays. That is a good thing, since the best of his blog entries were basically in essay form anyway, so if he starts posting more of those and less of the shorter ones, I think the total quality of his site will go up. Oh well. I’ll wait patiently while he figures out what he wants to do. Until then, I might have to take him off my blogroll, just out of spite.
