a blog – because everyone has one.

December 7, 2010

I started a blog.  Being less than 25, my only source of information -other than television and the lyrics of indie-folk music – is naturally Wikipedia. Considering that, it would seem appropriate to check the opinion of Wikipedia on what a blog actually is:

A blog (a blend of the term web log) is a type of website or part of a website. Blogs are usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. Blog can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.

Well there you have it. Now, this has put all of us in an awkward position: Firstly, because everyone did have to think for a moment to figure out what ‘reverse-chronological’ actually means, and secondly, because we inevitably had to pause to remember what a verb is. It’s a doing word, coincidentally.

Anyway, I’ll be writing about anything and everything here – who knows, I may even throw in some ‘other material such as graphics or video’. Never!

Check back soon for more :)

    Blogs are overrated anyhow; just like any social network
    site. I used to have one on WP; but miserably failed at it. I guess
    not writing popular and interesting topics was the eventual dead of
    it; it’s just that posting crap about my loldog on a regular basis
    it’s not my cup of tea. Even to appease the mindless masses.
    Meaning that perhaps not everybody should (have one for the sake
    itself). Now I have one on site (GSites based on the announcements
    template); aptly called ‘blawg’, not public ready yet; since it’s
    also biz related (like you and PaintRibbon), which obv serves
    solely as a publicity mechanism (news-like often masquerading as
    venting out). I also like having more direct control over it than
    simply changing css themes (on free WP, or even Blogger). And BTW,
    the only multimedia file on it it’s a sample short mp3 on a single
    entry, to emphasize the counter-effective and plain pointless
    silliness of closing down habitations with sentry boxes everywhere
    down here (GuateMala City). Good luck with it though (PR
    also).
