I was going to write something serious, insightful even here but then I noticed this default about page came with a Gotham reference. Of course, that changed everything.
The XYZ Doohickey Company was founded in 1971, and has been providing quality doohickeys to the public ever since. Located in Gotham City, XYZ employs over 2,000 people and does all kinds of awesome things for the Gotham community.
Truth though is that I had just dug up an old ‘About’ page from my former site, archive.org to the rescue when content isn’t stored on an immutable blockchain, but then I realized it would give everything about me away.
Not about my parents though, but as everyone knows that’s a topic not to visit.
This is my personal blog. The views expressed on these pages are mine alone and not those of my employer. Even though only I employ myself.
I pursue stoicism, I’m not the best author and I don’t journal either. The latter which is probably what keeps me from being more fulfilled in my pursuit of
can’t be arsed stoicism. I came to stoicism via ataraxia.
I’ve been blogging for a really long time, many years of which even professionally. Always did I revert to the wise words of Paul Boutin in 2008:
Writing a weblog today isn’t the bright idea it was four years ago. The blogosphere, once a freshwater oasis of folksy self-expression and clever thought, has been flooded by a tsunami of paid bilge. Cut-rate journalists and underground marketing campaigns now drown out the authentic voices of amateur wordsmiths. It’s almost impossible to get noticed, except by hecklers. And why bother? The time it takes to craft sharp, witty blog prose is better spent expressing yourself on Flickr, Facebook, or Twitter.
Or, of course, on
Steem Hive. Yet on Hive the same applies and the only tip is “Buckle up, improve yourself or go home”. It isn’t because you wrote it that you also should be rewarded.
On this site, I will occasionally try my hand at some more creative writings, other times I may just have a
ramble some wild thoughts I attempt to collect in a post.
Content published here may or may not be published to the Hive blockchain. Yet most will automatically be submitted to Archive.org.
Let’s see how this site evolves.
The ride is on.
PS: I write in my fourth language. Get off my back.
