Meet the New Blog! Same As the Old Blog!

This is my first post on AdamsDrafting.com in over two years. I’ve moved back here, bringing with me a copy of all my posts on The Koncise Drafter, at koncision.com. I’ve also redesigned the entire site.

As I said in my final post on The Koncise Drafter, koncision.com will remain the home for all things relating to Koncision Contract Automation. My home for all my other activities and interests will be this site. Because Koncision currently doesn’t earn me any money, it made no sense to hide my livelihood under a Koncision bushel. I’ll soon do a post about my plans for Koncision.

This site is still a work in progress. For one thing, as I write this, the existing comments aren’t yet showing up on Disqus. And I’ll be recategorizing all 1,193 existing blog posts.

I’m aware that after almost seven years of blogging, I’m sitting on a sizeable heap of blog posts. My posts serve mostly as a means for me to think things through. Some posts are still valid, some are out-of-date, and some are best ignored; the trick is figuring out which are which. For the most current take on many topics discussed in blog posts, I recommend that you consult A Manual of Style for Contract Drafting.

Blogging is still as essential for me as it ever was. But are my posts still as worthwhile for readers? That’s for you to say. Because my blogging focuses on new developments and on topics that I have yet to treat adequately, over the years my focus has narrowed. As a result I might have lost some readers.

And I suspect that in the past couple of years my posts haven’t attracted comments as they did in the salad days of my first three years of blogging. In addition to my narrowed focus, another contributing factor might be that commenters tend to come upon the blog, comment for a period, then move on. That’s understandable—seven years is a long time to maintain a perch in the peanut gallery. A third factor is that in the age of Twitter, posting comments on blogs might not be what it was. But I’ll keep on plodding regardless.

If you’d like to receive, once or twice a month, an email with links to recent posts on the Adams on Contract Drafting blog, you can sign up by going here. I’ll be emailing my current subscribers to say as much.

My thanks to Selene Bowlby of iDesign Studios for another job well done. And thanks to my daughter, Sydney, for taking the photo of her haggard father.
