Introducing Playbook: more permanent than blog posts

November 21, 2013

I’ve been dissatisfied with blog posts lately because they feel too temporary. I write down my thoughts, click Publish, receive some attention for about a day, and then disappear into the ether. If I’m lucky, I blogged about something that Google finds favorable, and it sends me some visitors who generally will look at one page and leave immediately.

Enter my new Playbook, a collection of articles that explain my opinions on and preferences for web design and development. It’s a collection of ideas that I can curate and tweak over time.

What I have in the Playbook right now is a humble beginning. I’ll be adding more how-to’s, style guides, and opinion pieces over time. The articles will likely be categorized, but why categorize now when there are only 3 of them?

I tip my hat to these guys for their inspiration:

Yes, a blog is a great platform for teaching. Heck, it may be enough, and this idea may be overkill. But I’m going to give it a shot. If it doesn’t work out, I’ll take it down, and I’m mostly sure that no one will be hurt in the process.
