Blame Game

I blame my brother - laspapi - for the birth of this blog. Before a couple of years ago, I was so far into myself I thought 'blog' was just another colloquial word that would eventually go out of fashion (with hindsight, my ignorance was palpable being a former network engineer with an MCSE and all the associated progress markers of those days). I had no interest in how it worked, nor did I have any inclination to find out. I viewed his blog occasionally and wondered to him how he found the time, where he found the mental resources to respond to comments and how he could survive the recognition of the fact that people would tend to know him quite well, some of them anonymous.


Later, I found some comments interesting and would have a mental snigger or two.


Then I left a couple of comments out of a particular sort of compulsion I'm still trying to understand, subsequently deciding I did not want my name out there probably because no one else had their's, and created a blog name to use merely for comments and ... here I am.


I blame laspapi and wish he'd never mentioned it. I am full of resentment because I think I will enjoy blogging and it will wake up my addictive personality.


Oh God! How did I get to this point?

Blogs don't kill people; people kill people. Good to have you on board, Jinta. It's kind of addictive though, but enjoyable. The trick is to have a life outside the web. There are a number of interesting blogs out there, I'll show you some.
