- I think readers find essays on my main website more authoritative -- lots of people have blogs but not as many have standalone sites like that one,
- I prefer the fact that my website is static and lays out essays by topic rather than by date -- I fear that on blogs, the old posts get lost and unread even if they're well written and not stale, and
- my website allows for more customization with formatting, etc.
One feature my static site lacks is comments, but I find that most discussion happens on Facebook nowadays, and sadly, my writings may appear more credible without comments. (As an example, an academic would not have a comments section for the papers on her website.)
Thanks to the readers of this blog for past contributions. I welcome continued feedback on my writings by email or Facebook.
