August 19, 2013 Why I blog here too
I keep this blog for two reasons (other than sheer inertia):
1. The Planetizen and CNU blogs are focused on my scholarly specialty of urban planning and zoning. (I use Planetizen for deeper, op-ed-style pieces, while I generally use CNU for shorter posts of a paragraph or two). By contrast, on this blog I feel a little freer to write about issues unrelated to urban planning.
2. Sometimes even my urban planning thoughts don’t quite seem to fit the other two blogs. For example, I dug up a lot of data on which age groups favor which cities. I’m not sure raw data is a good fit for either Planetizen or CNU, so I posted it here. Similarly, if I just went to a conference, I want to write down what I learned- but I’m not sure that stuff really fits the other two blogs very well.
