I feel like my blogging has had more subtext than normal recently. In my regular blog, certainly; but in my linkblog perhaps even more. Not all the time, not even most of the time, but it's there. Which is kind of interesting, as somebody who doesn't particularly believe in authorial intent: yes, the intent is there, but no, I don't think it should matter when looking at the blog from the outside.

In fact, maybe I should make intent matter less: maybe I should do a better job of filing off the specifics and presenting general thoughts? I dunno, I probably do lots of that anyways, my brain likes to generalize. Also, in my linkblog, there's this funny wrinkle that my brain wants to see external determinism: over and over again, the Twitter or RSS feeds that I follow serve up something that's directly relevant to what's going on in my life at that moment. But, ultimately, I'm repeating those links with minimal commentary; if their meaning to me serves to give the links more coherence to others, so much the better.
