The nightmare continues...
The last three years have been interesting ones for me. I've insulted folks, both intentionally and unintentionally, engaged in fascinating debates, and generally become more informed. It's been my experience that committing to post something five days a week tends to make me more alert for interesting or bizarre news. Does this give me a more complete perspective on the world? Well, maybe, maybe not, but I figure I have to be doing better than the Conservapeons. The most enjoyable part of becoming a blogger, however, has been getting to know- and even meet- other bloggers. There's quite a rogues gallery out here on the old intertubes. In addition to Brayden, who has abandoned his old haunts for the very successful orgtheory.net, I've gotten to know Jeremy of Jeremy Freese's weblog, Tom Bozzo of Marginal Utility, as well as his co-blogger Kim and, to a much lesser extent, Ken. As if that weren't enough, there's Tina, now of Total Drek,**** Alan of the eponymously named blog, Plain(s)feminist, who always has something interesting to say, and Tom Volscho whose blog is much more intelligent than my own.*****
And, of course, the fun continues as I always seem to be meeting new and fascinating people via the blog. There's Dan Myers, S.S. Stone, and of course Brad Wright, who each have their own unique take on things.
So what is in store for the future? Probably more ranting about the intelligent design folk, more mockery of Conservapedia, and more juvenile humor. Hopefully, also, more learning, more fun, and more encounters with people who are more interesting them myself. Regardless, I know one thing for certain:
As long as I have my blog, I will always have a way to procrastinate! And that's all that matters.
* "The day" meaning, in this case, 2004.
** Actually, that's largely still my position on the matter.
*** It goes without saying that this set the tone for my future blog posts.
**** Sort of. She's way too busy being productive to actually blog much.
***** Not much of a feat, really, since some cereal boxes are more intelligent than this blog.
As a side note: the pictures I selected for individuals are a result of equal parts imagination and sheer laziness.
