As part of my theme for this year (“Create”) I’ve been trying to figure out how best to organize my different streams as I push content out into the web. One thing I’ve started to become more sensitive to is how I’ve got several different interests, passions, hobbies that don’t always cross over to one another which can make some of my streams feel like a lot more noise than signal.
So, with that in mind I’ve started to make some changes and tweaks to try and focus the different streams of content so those who choose to consume content I produce (thanks, by the way) can get the type of content they’re interested in, and hopefully none (or at least as little as possible) of the stuff they don’t.
New Portfolio Site
The biggest change so far is that I’ve started to migrate all work/portfolio related content into a new site at http://work.ryancoleman.ca - since I’m working full-time the showcase worthy freelance work & speaking engagements are a little more spread out, causing them to easily get lost in the sea of other posts and content on this site. I’m also trying to keep my actual “blog” a lot lighter in terms of moving parts and that ran counter to having slicker, portfolio style posts.
So what to follow / where to read?
My primary twitter account @ryancoleman continues to be my fire hose stream – pretty much everything ends up there eventually.
Ideas / Opinion / Blog
That’s this site, http://ryancoleman.ca
Work, Speaking & Facilitation Portfolio
That would be the new site mentioned above http://work.ryancoleman.ca
Photography [Photoblog | @ryansphotos | Tumblr ]
I’m not sure I’ve found the right mix here yet but in a nutshell:
- if RSS is your preferred method the Photoblog is your best bet
- @ryansphotos is the same content as the photoblog, just via twitter (my @ryancoleman account also includes these posts)
- My Tumblr Photoblog integrates the primary photoblog content & my Instagram pics
Humour, Oddstuff, General Interest [Tumblr]
I’ve got an odd sense of humour – I try to keep that side of me confined to my primary Tumblr blog.
So there you have it, if you got this far thanks for reading – hopefully this helps you narrow the stream of content coming from me if the fire hose is just too much.
