Blogging: The need to specialize

As the ideas behind Web 2.0 get more and more complicated and far reaching in their scope, I am finding it nearly impossible to write about all the great things I am discovering from others and insights I am personally developing. With my time now being taken up by client work, as well as BrainJams, I am in dire need of creating a more specific focus for my professional blog. It is tough for me to do with so many topics of interest receiving so much attention these days. I often find that I have 40+ tabs open at any one time I want to write about, but don’t have the time.

This really hit me as I was reading through Dion Hincliffe’s blog and came across some great posts he has written lately: Five Great Ways to Harness Collective Intelligence, Notes on Making Good Social Software and The Web 2.0 Revolution Spawns Offshoots.

I am not entirely sure what angle I will be taking yet, though with my interest in The Noble Pursuit, People Powered Search and Brainjams that it will involve collaboration, innovation and collective intelligence. To this end, I plan on moving my professional insights, over to and keeping a personal journal site in addition to using BrainJams as a group blogging platform.

Would love to hear some more feedback from those of you who keep separate blogs for such things as well as those of you who keep one blog to rule them all…

    I have battled with this from day one as I feel weird sometimes when I try to talk about serious topics after talking about silly things (i.e. sinus infection). Maybe separating out blogs is something to consider. Though, I do find it more interesting to let people see the whole you. Warts and all, so I lean towards keeping your posts all under one roof.

    I can’t be bothered with anything these days, but shrug. I just don’t have anything to say recently.
