This is such an interesting conundrum. I don’t think you are entirely right though about the “old news” bit. I’ve stumbled across some of your older blogs and have been so happy that they are still there. The thing I struggle with right now is how much new material to “hold back” from publishing on medium since I do want to publish a book of poems. But, it is so wonderful to be able to share these pieces with fellow writers who really do appreciate a good poem or story. Keep writing both your blogs and your novel. I think this will sort itself out.
