I wrote a longish essay-as-question on a friend's blog this afternoon and answered something for myself.
I'd have put that topic in different language if it had been written here, and I would have missed the answer I got from writing over there.
For this reason, I see that I'm going to have to open up the content I write here and get outside "the yoga or the relationship" which is my current dual channel here.
This will mean, talking about the stuff I teach more, the stuff I think with, the art, the film, the theory, all of that academic jazz. Now, in case that sounds super boring (which I don't think it often will be) or super esoteric (which is virtually guaranteed), I have questions for you largely-anonymous readers out there:
1. Should there be a new site for that? Wordpress or something?
2. Will you still read here if I tag posts things like "yoga" or "academics" or "shock value" or stuff like that? You know how I can get creative with a title. Basically, this place is going to have to go "life" versus just going "yoga" and yeah yeah you can say "those are the same" all day long, but you and I both know that's just Bad Advaita bullshit, so shut it.
3. How in the world is my number of followers increasing, when I hardly ever post anything on anyone's blog and I've more-and-more turned toward writing in the "I don't give a flying fuck if you read this or not" vein with precisely that attitude? Not that I mind. As someone in the NYT citing John Updike said this week, "No act is so private that it doesn't seek applause."
I would like ANSWERS to these considerations, particularly to the first one, where I'm wondering if I should open a new "all of me" blog or just write more broadly about all aspects in *this* location. Writing about all aspects is not optional.
