Push the tempo?

by garth on August 27, 2007

I'm much more likely to post to Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook than here. The environments are pleasantly slack: I don't feel like I have to write masses of highly insightful prose. 

Today, I noticed another key factor: their tools are optimised for speed of posting. You can tweet or tumble as fast as you can send an instant message. For whatever reason, I feel a lot more drag than that when trying to post in WordPress. 

I've installed TIQPWP to see if it helps. Already, I've noticed one thing I like: when I hit Enter, I get a new paragraph rather than a line break. 

Result so far: first post in a billion years. Well, a month. Whatever.
