What is a Blog?
It’s a means of thinking out loud.
A way to surprise oneself.
Sometimes a commitment device.
A way of engaging friendly strangers.
And thereby creating strange friends.
It’s an invitation to others
to come hither and share in our best guesses.
A pretext for the excitement of hyperlinking.
A pretence at poetry.
An attention seeking device.
Actually it’s a waste of time.
At least this one is.
But as Bertrand Russell once said,
time wasted enjoying oneself,
is never time wasted.
