a slow blog

I think I'm part of a movement.

Blogger Todd Sieling's [http://toddsieling.com/slowblog/?page_id=10|Slow Blog manifesto] has recently been getting some attention. Word of it came to me via a New York Times [http://www.nytimes.com/2008/11/23/fashion/23slowblog.html?_r=1&ref=fashion|article]. (I'm such an un-networked blogger.) The article resonated. Then I googled and came across the lovely [http://rippleeffects.wordpress.com/|Ripple Effects] blog -- another natural slow blogger. [http://rippleeffects.wordpress.com/2008/11/22/slow-blogging-and-the-long-take/|Here's] what the author had to say:

It’s all about thinking through, reading and studying in depth, chewing and digesting, and finally putting something meaningful down in words.

Perhaps I'm not doing that exactly, but I do aspire to share a little bit of substance -- something of meaning. And I wish I had more time tonight to write about this. But it's the end of the semester and the night before Thanksgiving. I'll be away from my computer all weekend. And I've still got pie crusts to make.

Happy Thanksgiving!
