I suppose I’ve been blogging for as long as I’ve been able to write. Except that back then it was still called journaling: I used my preferred paper medium and I was my only audience — except for my spying siblings (youknowyoudiditdon’tlie!).
The thing about my journal, though, is that it has always seemed to thrive on either venting or blow-by-blow accounts of things I’ve found personally interesting, both of which are, even for the the writer, saddeningly uninteresting to revisit (takethatyousneaks!).
This blog, public as it is, is my personal push to write about those things that interest me from a new launchpad, one rooted in curiosity. Hopefully the result will be something that one or two people beside myself find interesting and, more importantly, that won’t give 80 year old me secondhand embarrassment for 25 year old me — that is, something that I’ll actually enjoy rereading 60 years from now (preferably printed on paper, like back in my day).
I’ve also written about:
