micah holmquist's irregular thoughts and links
Welcome to the musings and notes of a Cadillac, Michigan based writer named Micah Holmquist, who is bothered by his own sarcasm.
Please send him email at email@example.com.
Holmquist's full archives are listed here.
Sites Holmquist trys, and often fails, to go no more than a couple of days without visiting (some of which Holmquist regularly swipes links from without attribution)
Blogs that for one reason or another Holmquist would like to read on at least something of a regular basis (always in development)

It feels good to be blogging less
I am a little over one week into taking this blog less seriously and loving the experience. It feels liberating to be able to read that supporting Bush’s “war on terror” is dissent, that opposing war with country X means supporting the government of X in all things and that the U.S. doesn’t really care about democracy in Iraq and not be compelled to write an 11-point response.
One of the pitfalls of blogs is that there is a tendency to respond to every little detail and miss the larger issues that take time to think through. I’m not going to name names as just about every blogger, most certainly including me, has done this at some point in time.
Just so it is clear, I do think there is value to people who post a lot and respond to all of the major developments of the day. I also think there is more value for less frequent but more thought out and better researched posts. It is the latter that I want to put more effort into, at least for a little while.
By the way, if you would like a message every week or so alerting you to the more significant posts on this blog, just send an email asking for the update to firstname.lastname@example.org.
