Getting rid of the middle man

— May 17, 2006 at 13:07 PDT


Marcel Molina finally got tired of linking to all my posts here, so he invited me to be a contributor to Riding Rails, the official Rails weblog. There will be some duplication between posts here and there, but I suspect I'll still post a fair amount here that won't show up on Riding Rails.

Now excuse me while I run out and buy a bigger hat...

    original_content += 1

    Anytime a major event happens in the Rails world, I can count on reading the same post at least three times on loudthinking, Riding Rails, SVN, and then on the many blogs that link to those three.

    Congrats, and keep it real! (Not to be confused with getting real.)

    Way to keep DRY.

    I subscribe to both this blog and Rails blog, it would save a second off my day if you didn't duplicate the posts. In any case, congratulations.

    Thanks, guys. I can see your point. Perhaps I'm just being a bit apprehensive that if I put all my good Rails stuff on Riding Rails that no one will read this blog anymore. Maybe that's just me being foolish. Anyway, I suppose it doesn't matter much either way, and it's good to tone down the echo chamber. I'll just have to write twice as much, heh.

    This may be the case, but I think even if you duplicated posts it may happen.

    Perhaps you can diversify the content a bit? Like have quick feature explanations on the Rails blog, and have longer segments from your upcoming book here? You are writing a book, right?

    my vote is syndicate your RR posts here.. is there a cross-blog comment-syndication standard yet? id hate to have to check both just for that :) ...
