This is my first blog post.
Blog is one of my least favorite words. To me, blog should mean a bloated bog, a place where knee-high boots are required and the occasional Stone Age cadaver is dredged up, having been spectacularly preserved by humic acid.
I prefer “web-log.”
Similarly, I don’t much like the word blogger, and don’t pretend to be one. I’m a person writing on the web, mostly prose. Some essays that have been published elsewhere. Maybe I’ll throw in a listicle now and then. Listicle is another word that doesn’t quite fit, in my mind.
In any case, here we go.
