I've been negelecting this space. I've had very good reasons to do it, yet it keeps feeling uncomfortable that the last post is from June this year. By now, all who once subscribed to this blog will probably have deleted the feed from their RSS-readers, especially with the latest tools who notify when the feed hasn't been updated for too long.
I didn't neglect my previous audience though. I keep meeting people, formerly known as bloggers, at conferences and in other on-line spaces. Recently I joined Facebook to keep connected with the blogging crowd. I use Flickr to keep informed of the whereabouts of my international network (and keep up with all the baby's being born). I use Jaiku to keep connected with a smaller number of people. The connections and relationships didn't stop existing by not blogging here.
What did diminish is the number of new people I unexpectantly meet through writing about my thoughts. That's no surprise: no writing = no google hits = one doesn't exist ;-)!
Managing multiple spaces can be tricky. I didn't stop blogging, but redirected my energy to my Dutch blog, or rather: company site. In the proces of building my work, I wanted more local visibility, which is why I wrote more in Dutch. Now that I'm sort of in a routine filling that space, it is time to start managing this space again.
There is enough going on in my life that I would like to share with 'the public' (which appears to be you :-) ). I also noticed lately that being too personal on my company blog doesn't feel right, so I think I can use this space to be just a tiny bit more personal.
N.B.: If you're expecting me to write about Habermas, I have to disappoint you. Not that I don't like the guy anymore, but his writing is not my biggest concern right now.
