I never was a real blogger (by which I mean a person who not only blogs, but also has actual readers and who interacts with an actual community). Along with everyone else around about 2004 or 2005, I discovered Blogger, spun up a few blogs, had a brief productive period, then quickly abandoned the project. I had grand designs and and open mind.
I’m interested in writing again. This seems like a good medium to explore that urge. Partly, this urge to write (really write) comes out of frustration with platforms like Twitter and Facebook. Frustration not because I’m a product being sold, but because Twitter and Facebook foster fragmented writing, trite social interaction, and consequently a fragmented and trite kind of thinking.
Blogging again, is a practice, or an activity I do to reclaim a deeper, more mindful way of thinking and being.
