State of the Blog — Eureka!! — Course Correction

Rolling down the road on this trip, I realized that I’ve been putting up less personal posts (my own discoveries wandering through the world) lately and more 3rd-party stuff.

   Each morning I go out and check email and blog comments first thing, then post what’s of interest — a lot of tiny homes, gardening stuff. Then I don’t get around to posting my own photos and reports — both of which there are many — and having you readers ride shotgun with me. After all, I Am A Camera.)

   I’ve got a logjam backup of content — so I’ve decided to try posting something of my own each day (pic and/or text). I’ll start by calling it The Daily Flash (may be able to give it better title). I’m thinking more shorter posts interspersed with the same type daily 3rd-party posts I’ve been doing lately. Hey, aren’t attention spans shorter all the time? (Just occurs to me this is slightly analogous to current discoveries of the value of shorter, more frequent exercise.)

   A course correction in this seeming compulsion I have to communicate. Here we go.

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers. You can check out videos (one with over 450,000 views) on Lloyd by doing a search on YouTube:

  1. is all good, Lloyd,
    having said that, is nice to hear of your goings on…

    Daily Flash sounds good…
    sort of a cross between
    Daily Flash of Camera
    Daily Flash of Inspiration

  2. I understand the impulse to just "reblog," because there is so much fascinating stuff out there. But I, for one, would definitely be sad if this blog became predominantly that and your own personal experiences / pov / voice were "phased out." I come here because you're my hero, as corny as that sounds it is true!
