This isn’t a blog.

Sure it might look like one, but nobody’s blogging here. Oh, sure I might post some stuff here every once in a while – some writing, or some random thoughts – but it isn’t a blog.

Really! That would imply something regular. And the only thing I do regularly is… wait, that would be too personal. Something more like a blog. But this isn’t a blog.

I mean, I have things on here about work. Does that make it a portfolio? No. It’s not that either. If I wanted to make something like that, I would have an accordion or a slideshow or something here. And what do I have? Just a lonely image and a bit of nonsensical text.

Go figure.
