Well, even I’m jumping on the blogging bandwagon May 7, 2006

I used to despise blogs.  Maybe it's just the blogs that I encountered, or maybe it's the very idea of a journal/diary – things that I deem to be highly personal – that people publish for the world to see.  I don't know why, but it used to be that whenever I hear that someone keeps a blog, my respect for them would instantly go down a notch or two.  I might even go as far as to say that I had a somewhat personal vendatta against bloggers – something that I still don't completely understand. 

What changed my mind?  I started discovering blogs that have a purpose.  I think I started with Lost Garden (www.lostgarden.com), with the infamous article on the Nintendo business philosophy.  Then I ran into BlogSuki (www.blogsuki.com).  Blogs that don't have articles with topics like "My life sucks" or "I'm going to kill myself".  Those are fun to read if they belong to your friends, but shit – I don't really care if you think your middle-class, surburban lifestyle with access to internet and enough leisure time to write up 3000 words entries on why the girlfriend who just left you is just a giant slut sucks.

Anyway, that was a really long and cumbersome sentence, and I'm digressing.

So I thought I could also write a blog.  I'm not going to talk about how my life sucks – I think I'm far more fortunate than most, and I'm content.  I think I'll focus on Anime and Gaming, my two prime hobbies.  But as the blog name suggests, I'll more than likely stray far and wide in my random ramblings.  I might even reach into those *gasp* oh so forbidden topics of religion and politics.  Hopefully I won't have anything too heavy though, blogging is primarily a way for me to alleviate boredom.

Here's to the birth of my blog!  I give myself 2 months before I get bored/forget that I have a blog.

It didn’t take me 2 months before I forgot and got bored with my blog. Why? Because I didn’t talk about how my life sucked…and no one visits it. Not to mention that I didn’t do a shameless plug for it in any forums *whistles* I’m not mentioning names…

Although, I have to say…of your two biggest hobbies Anime and Gaming…I’m not really into neither. Okay, so I read Manga sometimes and watch Anime when I have the good fortune of coming across it, but I won’t go as far as to seek “titles” out most of the time. Yet…still I am here posting.

Addiction to posting? Maybe.
On a level, I guess I enjoy it more for its method of interaction (and the lack of other interactions). Less imposing, less stress.

Omg…I’m rambling. Please stop me.
