Sam Gentile decided to spawn a new blog because he doesn’t feel his CodeBetter blog is the place to write about “politics, music, family or life in general”. I understand Sam’s feelings 100%. I maintained blogs.msdn.com/devhawk for these exactly these reasons. But since I’m no longer an evangelist (or MVP, natch) and my blog no longer graces the pages of the MSDN Architecture Center, I don’t bother to provide a dev-centric, politically sanitized and work safe version of this blog. As I wrote several years ago that DevHawk is not a technical blog, it’s my personal blog. Like Sam, I don’t get paid to write it and if you don’t want to put up with my politics to get my architecture insights, you’re free to unsubscribe.
Sam, if you’re reading this, I suggest that you have one “master” blog and one “sanitized” blog, rather than two independent ones. I’ve tried having two separate blogs, but one always suffered. My rationale was always that there is only one “me” and I wanted once place that reflects the things I am passionate about. If I felt a specific post needed to be sanitized for whatever reason (too personal, too vulgar, not technical, etc.) I would simply choose to not cross post it to my MSDN blog.
