Automatic posting = clutter and noise!
Over the past few months, I have been experimenting with using IFTTT (which is indeed a seriously awesome service) to automatically create link posts to articles and websites I have added to Pocket (to perhaps revisit or read later or just to keep for future reference).
I think it’s becoming apparent that my blog is just becoming a stream of short, often irrelevant link posts. And the more interesting stuff is getting lost in the noise.
If I find something I particularly like and want to share, I think it’s worth taking the extra few minutes to handcraft a few words to accompany it rather than posting it automatically with whatever text gets generated automatically.
I have actually deleted a whole bunch of “#bookmarked” posts from the past month or two to tidy things up.
I hope my blog is better for it.
