Bloggin’

In June of this year, I purged all of my old blog entries because I was more than a bit ashamed of my writing. I rambled a lot or dumped tons of screenshots of games that I was playing. I was embarrassed that what I felt ought to be a right proper blog was, instead, an online journal. Back in ye olden times of the Internet, a blog was essentially an online journal, and who needs one of those anymore when there’s Twitter? A blog these days means something of almost magazine-like quality. The only way I could justify paying for and maintaining a blog, I thought, would be if I were to amp up the quality and provide Content™ for the masses.

Then I stopped updating altogether because the idea of sitting down to create Content™ was so unappealing and dreadful, especially when I could release a string of vapid tweets and then play video games instead. It turns out that it’s even harder to justify a blog’s continuing existence if it has only three posts.

So here I am again, refreshing the idea once more of what I think a blog ought to be. None of this really matters to you, dear reader, since I doubt there will be much Content™ coming. Nor do you really care about my internal debate over whether to shut down this site that receives only a couple of hits per month. However, I am going to make an entirely pointless pledge to update this place more often.

Carry on.

  1. Your Anki tips for setting up the colorized stroke orders really helped! I’ve been flitting through Skritter, over to Tofugu, and elsewhere — studying the meta- as well as hand-on aspects of digitial kanji learing as part of my Instructional Design Tech Masters program. (If you have any thoughts on all that, I’d love to hear them!). From the clean way you presented that info, I’m sure your other writing is more than readable. Best, Rob
