But this brings me to the next point. Which is that due to the blog's meteoric
rise there've been a lot of questions recently cropping up about how I'm able to
sustain such an 'vast output'. Both the aforementioned Mercouris and Johnson
have even floated the idea that this channel may be a collective, cooperative,
etc. These suggestions were not ill-intentioned, but rather an understandable
reaction to the prolific amount of output I'm able to sustain.
Also, though I'm not a Russian MOD mole and other such recently suggested
notions, I will say that I've run in certain circles which allowed me an
occasional peek behind the curtain of how things work. But generally, this is
rarely specific information but rather more a below-the-surface understanding of
how certain state/military apparatuses naturally function, their decision-making
inclinations, etc., which allows me to more accurately parse out events that
would otherwise be deemed ambiguous or inconclusive by the public at large. In
short, it's an understanding which informs my perspective to more accurately
reflect things we can't "see" beneath the surface, but can make educated
assessments about that may at least be closer to the truth.
So, if I'm not an AI, collective, etc., what's the secret? I hate to let the
hopefuls down, but it simply comes down to a lot of work and man hours.
The only 'secret sauce' to this is having good organizational skills by which
you create a system to have a lot of information at hand, organized in a way
that allows you to retrieve it quickly and efficiently. Ultimately, though it
comes from years of experience of following events and knowing where to go for
each piece of news; i.e. which accounts are trustworthy, which channels will
have the most important morsels; basically: shortcuts, an optimization of
workflow. In short, it means doing this professionally rather than as a hobbyist
or simple dilettante dabbling at articles here and there when whim or fancy
strikes. I take the work seriously and have created my own personally optimized
pipelines and workflows over the course of years.
