Well, This is Odd

A strange thought. At this point, I’m so used to the sheer crazed busy wildness that is the web- links everywhere, bright colours, flashing ads, often auto-playing media, slow load times et al, that a page like mine feels… wrong. Empty.
I’ve explicitly designed it to load almost instantly. This is a static site by design- meaning that it loads incredibly fast. Now, most people would say that for a real blog you need a comments section. Well, they might be right.
On the other hand, I’m a bit of a curmudgeon, so they might very well be wrong, too- I don’t know that a lot of people let strangers write in their diaries, and I’m wary of parasocial relationships and oversharing. I’m also tired of the whole idea that you need to be 24/7 connected to everything, all the time.
This, then, is a blog in the classic sense- it is a web-log, for me (no one else, despite the multiple names on the posts) to catalogue my thoughts, experiences, photographs, recipes, hobbies, or other nonsense as the mood takes me.
If you’re reading this, you’re probably in the circle of friends I linked to this page (If, somehow, you’re not- cautious greetings!). If that’s the case and you have something to say about what you read on these pages, you already know how to get in touch with me. In the off chance that you don’t, well, your commentary on my works will have to be left un-communicated. My genetics compel me to be just a little sorry about that, but the entire structure of this blog means I won’t be changing it.
Have a good time, if you can!
