I had lunch with an old friend the the other day. He reads this blog from time to time. When we were about to say good-bye-for-now, he turned to me and said: “Arto, I really think you should post a bit more often on your blog or you will lose your readers.”. I took his advice as friendly feedback but didn’t think about it very much the rest of the day as I got back to work.
I then remembered his advice again when I started to restructure this site. I came to think about phenomena such as Slow Food and Slow Travel on one hand and Twitter and Blondinbella (in Swedish but you get the general idea from a quick glimpse on the pictures and date stamps) on the other. It then dawned upon me that I am a Slow Blogger. It would have been great to have been the first to come up with the term but Google, the ruthless arbiter of existence and non-existence, found the Slow Blog Manifesto by Todd Sieling. I could not have said it better myself. So I won’t.
Be assured that this blog will grow at a leisurely pace and hopefully only after a few cycles of brain activity have taken place. Call me old-fashioned if you will. Call me lazy. Or call me a Slow Blogger.
