[Ryan wrote about Automattic’s purchase of Tumblr](https://ryandsullivan.com/automattic-bought-tumblr-and-thats-a-good-thing/). Here is the main point that stuck out to me.

> GeoCities is always a running joke around the internet, but I’d love to see us return to a place where “this is my working sandbox of thought and personal development” is more widely accepted.

This is what I’ve turned my site back into after a number of years focused on “being a business”. I am more likely to follow people that write about programming, then their kids, then whatever else interests them that day.

I write about my kids (hanging out with them now because we couldn’t get a babysitter) and programming and my productivity and freelance tips because that’s what interests me. It’s my site…isn’t it.
