Hi blog, I know that’s a funny thing to say ‘hi blog’ but that’s the truth and I gotta say I do blog, still. In this day and age of 160 char tweets, fb posts, posterous, tumblrs, I embrace and cherish the longevity of 1000 word posts (okay maybe less), and stick to it like an old dinosaur that wouldnt die.
What’s a blog? Or rather what is this blog?
It’s a collection of my thoughts. My very own thoughtcatalog, although less angsty less emo and less x-rated than the website of that name. But you know, sex is real and even ‘kindergarten teachers have sex’. And incidentally thoughtcatalog is built on WordPress. Yup so its a catalog of thoughts. Big thoughts, small thoughts, important thoughts and some less important ones. It’s written sometimes for people, sometimes even for myself. It’s about thoughts that I want to keep, that I want to own, that do not disappear into the blackhole of Facebook’s whimsical engineers. It’s about people like you who can spare 1 minute to read a post, not the half second for a fb status. It’s about thoughts that you share with one, or a handful of people. Because it might mean something to them, because there are such things as private information and privileged access still.
I read a post today saying that RSS might not be so dead after all. Haha. Despite some blogs and companies shutting it off, there was a small but definite protest and controversy. It’s like how you can’t really kill blogs off, not so fast anyway. 🙂
I did consider writing it privately in a journal. Why not. Lovely paper, lovely ink, lovely pen, bad handwriting…. But its quite a hassle to share later.
As the t-shirt says ‘There’s no place like 127.0.0.1’ 🙂 I so want one of those.

Of beautiful pictures, and beautiful words, and beautiful thoughts, and beautiful lives.
And if to not take life too seriously, here’s another quote of the day ‘So Beautiful and So What’ 😀
