So, I’m going to succumb to the temptation and start a blog. I never liked the term blog; it always seemed faddish and faux hip to me. Plus, everybody calls everything a blog. I once saw a blog defined as follows:
“A web site of personal or non-commercial origin that uses a dated log format that is updated on a daily or very frequent basis with new information about a particular subject or range of subjects. The information can be written by the site owner, gleaned from other Web sites or other sources, or contributed by users.” [techtarget.com]
Frankly, I feel that definition is far too broad to be useful; by those standards, CNN.com is a blog.
So, call it whatever you want. I’ve got some shit to get off of my chest. However, I suspect calling it the “gettin’-shit-offa-my-chest” section of the site might be off-putting.
In any case, stay tuned my captivating* commentary!
