To Blog Or Not To Blog

After much dithering and debate, I enter the murky waters of online weblogs.  Here’s a rundown of the thought process that led up to this momentous watershed in world history:

Cons of blogging:

  • eats up time that might be better spent
  • writing two steps below “rough draft” status will be forever etched into the Internet’s stone tome of shame
  • requires me to read and edit possibly-irritating comments by others
  • will lose my Luddite cred with students
  • worse, nobody will ever see it or care
  • worser, Interpol will see it and track me down

Pros of blogging:

  • will get me back into journaling habit
  • might help spur achievement in other goals
  • might connect with intelligent fellow-beings and meaningfully contribute to their quality of life
  • what’s to lose?

And thus, with that illustrious, inspiring burst of macho optimism, on the eve of the world’s remembrance of the new life given to us all by the sacrifice of God’s Son, I launch this heinous little spurt of frustrated thought into the void.  Significance, ho!
