The TurnKey blog: where do we go from here?

When we started out a few years ago the scope of posts was very limited. Only news announcements, once every few months. The idea was to keep the signal to noise ratio down. But then a couple of years later we added tags to the blog and that changed everything because it meant we could offer a just-the-news feed to those who wanted it while opening up the blog to a broader range of subjects. Gradually the scope of the blog expanded until it included pretty much anything interesting we came across in our TurnKey adventures.

Tweeting for news-a-holics

Hi, my name is Alon and I'm a news-a-holic.

Lets face it, some of us have addictions, be it alcoholism, nicotine, gambling, over-eating, television, or even just mowing the lawn. Mine is being up to date with the latest news.

Some addictions are worse than others in being self-destructive, and as you already know, identifying and acknowledging you have a problem is the first step. I am also a work-a-holic, so when I realized that having to know the latest news was impacting my workflow, I needed to find a solution.

Blogging - it's about time we started

I always figured I would have to try out this blogging "fad" some time in the future. It just never really seemed like the right time to start. Well now we're in 2010 which sounds a lot like the future to the kid in me, so I guess it's time to get our act together and go for it. So yes, it's finally going to happen. The blogging apocalypse is upon us!

Of course, there's a bit more than pure whim involved. Every time Alon and I have a nice long chat about the project blogging (or our lack of) comes up and it seems like such a good idea.
