It’s a title that may need a little explanation.

Lately, work and life have been a bit crazy and I’ve had very little time to blog anything of merit. I began to experiment with twitter to post short updates on things. then as time got more constrained, my twittering increased and blogging floundered.  At this point, I figured it’d be a good idea to integrate my twitterings directly into the blog feed to prevent things going stale.

I was wrong.

Last week, I started to get the feeling that the integration wasn’t working. The blog didn’t feel right; something more akin to a life status feed rather than a blog :/

Then Danny sent me some constructive feedback this morning. He’s right: the tweets just create too much noise; and quickly, any value that the blog had evaporates.

So, the integrated “in-feed” twitter updates are gone. They’re still in my sidebar, but you’ll no longer see them as part of the RSS feed or in the normal blog bits.

I’m hoping now that the ratio of Signal vs Noise can be restored.

Cheers,
Phil
