Bet you thought personal blogs went out in the late ’00s.

I never did keep up with what the cool kids were doing.

So, this is kind of like keeping a diary, but not quite because I can edit misspellings, rearrange for readability, add in things I’d forgotten about, include photos that won’t fall off the page, and let the whole world see this if they want to without me having to watch them reading it. Glob knows people found and read my diaries and journals every fucking time I turned around over the years when I was keeping them on paper. At least this way I get a say in it.

And remember, kids: It’s only defamation if you can prove it’s not true.
