I have a blog. Duh. You're reading it.
I don't post all that often.
Basically there's four reasons for this:
- I don't really have that much time to do it - blogging takes time. Some of these people must be on for hours and hours a day JUST BLOGGING. It's kinda screwed up, actually. I mean, get a life!
- The stuff I think is good I want to protect (copyright, etc.). Blogging just doesn't seem to allow for that kind of protection. I want to get it "out there," but I don't want it being snagged by every unscrupulous freak out there.
- When I post, I really have no clue how much it's being read: I don't have a hit counter or anysuch gadget. So it just goes out there. Just typing it is therapeutic, but, geez, I only need so much therapy.
- After reading a lot of blogs out there, heck, after surfing the 'net almost every day since '94, I've discovered that there's a lot of real drivel out there. That which is not drivel is often a mass rally for something that is "preachin' to the choir." I don't want to add to the level of drivel in the world; I don't tend to post random personal stuff. Actually, when I want people to see stuff I usually e-mail them 'cause they get it faster and see it (rather than post it, which means only a few people will check it out, and at a much later date).
Maybe I'll start posting more - and it's gonna be random...
