So I have sunken myself deeper into the internet… I’ve started a blog. My first post will be relatively short. It will be interesting to see how long this whole thing lasts. I’m not exactly sure why I have started this blog, and if the title hasn’t said it clearly enough, this blog is basically a lot of nothing. This is simply a virtual clipboard in where I will post and discuss things I find interesting from various sources, and I invite you to do the same in the comments section.
To start off, I was not particularly fond of blogs until recently. However, I have come to realize that blogs are an invaluable source of information for the things that interest me. Sort of like a party for newspaper editorial columnists, but everyone’s invited. And isn’t that the whole point of the internet, to share information quickly and conveniently?
Here are some of the blogs I frequent:
http://matadornetwork.com/ For the traveler
http://pruned.blogspot.com/ Landscape architecture.
3 lil bi*ches. Blogger won’t let me post a link with a vulgar URL, but visit 3lilbi*ches.blogspot of you’re interested but replace the * with a “t.” A cool blog started by 3 high school friends of mine.
http://www.woostercollective.com/ Street Art: New Art
http://www.thecoolhunter.net/ Hunting cool things
… to name a few.
I will let one of my favorite fictional characters, Hank Moody, rant about blogs. I share some of his grievances:
(please excuse the subtitles)
In a later blog, I will show you how to stay up-to-date with your favorite blogs, newscasts, sports scores, and other internet information in fast and reliable way by utilizing RSS feeds.
This concludes my first ever blog post.
