Slow Blog

American Robotnik draws inspiration from Todd Sieling’s Slow Blog Manifesto. A summary:

  1. Slow blogging rejects immediacy; it happens when it happens.
  2. Slow blogging speaks like it matters; it is deliberate and unhurried.
  3. Slow blogging avoids one-liners; it favors the long form.
  4. Slow blogging values silence; it speaks the language of timelessness.
  5. Slow blogging ignores the rules of PageRank.
  6. Slow blogging considers the machine a tool, rather than a driver, of human expression.

American Robotnik’s additions:

  1. Slow blogging creates meaning, not content.
  2. Slow blogging fulfills the creative need of the author.
  3. Slow blogging meets the reader’s learning and meaning-seeking over consumption needs.
  4. Slow blogging eschews search engine algorithms and website analytics in determining what to publish.
