On the blog, you’ll see two types of posts: staccatos and legatos. Just like in music notation, staccatos are short, stand-alone posts that feature one “note.” Notes contain both borrowed and original ideas, but if they aren’t mine, you’ll see an attribution somewhere on the card and in the post. Staccatos focus on one main idea or thought and are usually no longer than 150 words. Legatos are longer posts that take the time to smell the proverbial roses and really get into the details. Unlike staccatos, legatos are focused on digging deeper and may present more than one idea or thought. Basically, staccatos take an idea and microwave it: just a few seconds and voila you’ve got yourself an idea. Legatos take ideas and throw them into the crockpot. It takes longer for the idea to emerge, but, overall, you’ve got a deeper more complex thought outcome.
