the randomness of me…

so, i was working on a program for a computer lab lately and needed an image to test it with. since the ones the prof had given us didn’t really produce anything that was recognisable as being valid output, i came to this site and grabbed a couple.

the lab assistant noticed, and commented “I haven’t seen that website before.”

instant thought: there’s a lot of websites on the intarweb, dude.

but i actually responded with the information that it was my blog.

“You have a blog?” total disbelief.

instant thought: doesn’t half the world blog anymore?

i affirmed that yes, i had a blog, and that this was it.

“What’s it about?”

and that’s where i was stuck.

because i’m not really sure what this thing is about. most folks, when giving advice to neophyte bloggers, suggest choosing a theme or central message and sticking with it. the common wisdom is randomness doesn’t draw an audience or keep the author’s interest.

but i don’t have a central theme or message. it’s just not me. what i’ve got are a lot of things i’m interested in, many of which have nothing to do with each other. and here i am, a year and three months on, and still going.

in half a dozen different directions, but going.

and my readership is continually growing, too. day-to-day page hits fluctuate a bit, of course, but the weekly and monthly trends keep climbing.

so to all of you who like these ramblings, thanks for stopping by, and i hope to keep you interested into the future. i mean, where else are you going to find pointless rants about cricket balls, comic books, and socially relevant holiday mascots all in the same place?

catch y’all later!
