I’ve Reached 300 Posts

In the beginning of the blogging craze, circa the beginning of the previous decade, I eschewed the blogging trend–didn’t want to do what the cool kids were doing, and never understood it. Why would anyone want to read the writings of some stupid person–writings that were likely to be full of personal nonsense? Self-congratulating lunacy.

Well, wouldn’t you know, but for some damned reason, I started blogging. I think it had more to do with wanting to just write than anything, and I think my random posts and interests are enough evidence of that fact.

This is a great book on history by the way. If you’re looking for a broad brush, this is it.

No one in their right mind would want to flounder about this site in search of anything interesting. I mean, I talk about politics, history, economics–without an expert’s knowledge of these things–and occasionally discuss my daily work of php, JavaScript, and web design. Hell, I’m reading A Penguin History of the World, by J.M. Roberts for Chrisakes–that makes me a very boring guy.

300 posts in roughly 2 years–not bad, could have been more. But it could have been less as well. Only thing I regret–not a lot of discussion taking place. Perhaps it’s because my blog is a little schizophrenic.

Now I’m off to conquer social media–seeing as how I’ve brushed it off in the same way as blogging.

    In Florida I think. During the strange period of time I was in Michigan before moving out officially.

    I’ve glanced through a few of the newer editions, and to me you probably can’t go wrong with an older edition.

    The differences are likely to be small. It’s all up to your fiscal standing really; though, you can’t beat a penny+shipping for such a large paperback.
