Friends, readers, communists, lend me your ears (eyes?).
As some of you may know, I’m currently going through a career transition that has left me temporarily (we hope) unemployed. As a result, I have a lot more free time on my hands than I used to.
For the past couple months that extra time has meant more time and effort went into my posts here. They’ve gotten longer, a little more detailed, and I’d like to say the quality has improved a little bit. I’ve been able to more fully explore some general issues, rather than being crunched for time and having to quickly spew out a few brief thoughts about recent headlines.
However, as I’ve devoted some extra resources towards writing, and as my writing has improved, I’ve also begun to entertain the notion of submitting various pieces to libertarian/anarchist websites and publications, in the hope of reaching a wider audience. Of course, nobody wants to publish something that’s already been sitting on my blog for a week, so I’m having to hold back a lot of what I’ve been writing while I search for someone willing to distribute it.
What this means is that for a while, the length and quality of the pieces that come up on DWMF on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday may be declining a bit, and I might be going back to my old ways of providing a simple link to something I enjoyed reading, and a few sentences of commentary about it. Don’t think that I’m spending less time writing though, I’m actually spending much more! If any of my stuff does end up getting published elsewhere, I’ll be sure to link to it here and to let you all know. If it doesn’t, it’ll end up on DWMF eventually. But for now, I just ask you to bear with me as I take on a challenge that I never really anticipated for myself. Thanks for your support!
