In the first post I wrote on this incarnation of this blog I talked about why I had stopped blogging before: because the inertia of other blogging systems made it too hard for me. Then I came upon blot.im (where this blog is hosted) and I found it was as easy as dropping a text file in a folder in Dropbox. Apparently I wasn’t the only one thinking about this (shocking I know).

The guys at Basecamp came up with a very simple way to blog as part of their Hey email service. It’s called Hey World and it’s as simple as sending an email to from the email composer. Needless to say it’s not full-fledged blogging like many would think of but boy is it a ridiculously simple way to remove friction from writing online. If you want to throw out some ideas it can’t get any easier than that.
