I'm Copying You


Here it is. I'm copying you, and you can't do a thing about it. Deal with it, loser :P

Plans for this blog


I've been thinking about what I want to do with this blog, and I think it really boils down to 3 types of posts (Stray Thoughts not withstanding). The first is tutorials or write-ups. I'm going to go ahead and strike this one off the list immediately; I don't really have the expertise in any field necessary to do this sort of thing, and any how-to article I write could probably be found better written elsewhere. The second is meta-political and cultural musings. This seems to be the most work of the three. I think I could write some interesting articles, but they would require a lot of research to fully flesh out. I have always loathed research papers, but if it's a topic I'm truly interested, I think I could do it. The final is fiction or poetry writing. I've been drawn lately to these, but the quality of my work is just dreadful. I'm not sure if I just don't have the creativity or if I simply lack the skills to bring a vision into words.

Ultimately, I am an abysmal writer. Ever since my earliest school days I have performed below average in this area. But this is one of the things this blog is meant to address. A large portion of my reasoning for this website, even, is to help me develop skills. So please bear with me while I assault you with my horrible writing. I will try to do some of each of what I've listed above, and God willing, I will become a competent writer in the process.

Added 88x31 button


I've added a classic 88x31 button to the footer of the site. Feel free to copy it to your own site if you want. You can grab it here or at the bottom of any page on my website.

My button

I made it pretty hastily in GIMP, but I don't think it turned out too bad. If you've got a button you'd like me to add to my site, you can contact me. Keep in mind, these buttons must be 88x31 pixels and must be .gifs. They should also be animated or memorable in some way.

This really seems like a cool/fun way to advertise other people's sites. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone elses buttons.

Blog is now live


I've finally set up a blog using Luke Smith's lb script. It was a lot easier than I was anticipating. Recent post will be on my home page, and my RSS feed is here. The standalone pages are not really how I want them, but I'll work on that later.
