An Experiment in Lifestreaming

Starting today, I’m going to try a little experiment on the front page of my blog. And you, my faithful readers, get to be the guinea pigs.

Fact: I don’t get around to writing new blog posts as often as I’d like, thanks to a rather busy life.

Fact: At the same time, my various online activities leave lots of “digital footprints” that might be of interest to you.

Say Hello to Lifestreaming.

So, starting today, in addition to the occasional blog post, you’ll see a variety of items posted from my different online activities to the homepage. That means that anytime I post a new photo to Flickr, write something on Twitter, save a bookmark to Delicious, etc., it’ll show up there too.

So, if you’re interested in keeping up with what I’m up to, this should make that a lot easier.

Note: If you’re subscribed to this blog’s news feed, my intention isn’t to overwhelm you, so you will not see these show up in your news reader of choice (you could always subscribe to an almost identical stream of events at my Friendfeed page if you really want to). The feed currently only gives updates for when I post new content here on my blog and when I save bookmarks to Delicious. If there’s any interest, I’m also willing to add in my new Flickr photos. If that’s something you’d like to see, please add a comment to this post.

Let me know what you think.

I’m interested to hear what you think about this experiment, so please let me know – good or bad. You can shoot me an email from the contact page or leave me a comment on this post (preferred).
