This is much later than I usually post the newsletter, but shit happens. (Actually, I'll explain why further down the page.) I first started a draft for DoA5 on Saturday. Unfortunately, I COULDN'T FIND IT when I went to pull the draft up to write. It had been buried down the page in a horde of other drafts, many languishing for weeks.

I'm partially mired in a rut and hobbled by 'analysis paralysis.'

"Analysis paralysis describes an individual or group process where overanalyzing or overthinking a situation can cause forward motion or decision-making to become "paralyzed," meaning that no solution or course of action is decided upon within a natural time frame."Wikipedia

Some articles will likely end up spawning sister articles or entire soapbox operas. Some are thoughts or interviews I've lost interest in or have gone in a different direction. But mostly, it's a jumbled pile. I focused- quite successfully- for so long on the website directories and forging a viable, productive routine for that aspect of Hashtag that this part backslid a bit. I'm sure some of my developer pals can empathize with my situation!

I don't know that my brain can commit to performing a set routine each week on a specific day. Sure, I have the newsletter and snippets, but I don't think either requires the effort or attention of an article or review. So right now, my idea is to merge my 'by the seat of my pants' style with some organization. I'm intrigued by the program Rooted uses for its roadmap- I can almost see the kernel of an idea here, but it needs to be fleshed out.

I'll keep you posted!

Onwards to the newsletter.
