Knowledge, Learning, Community
For me, the metric for success for this website (and the rest) is how much I learn from doing it. Because for me blogging isn't about raising money or generating churn or being sticky. It's about personal development. Learning, for me, comes from a variety of sources - not just the new things I read every day to create these posts, but the conversations I have, the fiddling I do to make my site work better, the challenges that come in the form of suggestions and ideas. Ah - but then, how to measure the learning? Well: can I understand what I read and, in public, summarize it accurately? Can I hold my own end of a conversation? Can I make my site work better (and, related: can I build good educational technology)? Can I respond to suggestions and ideals with innovation and creativity?
