Assuming those of you who are regular readers tend to get something or other out of my scribblings for various venues, do any of you have an opinion as to which of the following two focuses over, say, the next 1-2 years would generate more value added?
- Daily, hard-ish journalism focusing on a few specific topic areas, though with a healthy dose of analysis and commentary. Clarification: When I say “journalism,” I don’t mean “news analysis”; I mean actual reporting.
- Less frequent, less journalistic, but longer and probably more analytic writing on a broader range of topics—possibly even a book.
For the moment, never mind why I’m asking. I’m just curious if people who tend to like/tolerate my writing have opinions about which is a better use of my time, and if so, what their reasons are.
Update: I should add that this is less a question about what I should do on this blog and more a question about, let’s say, the kind of writing I should be doing in general—primarily elsewhere.
