On Blogging

October 21, 2010 § Leave a comment

Never really thought about seriously blogging until recently. I have set up a few blogs in the past, usually for a big trip or something similar. I found that it was an easy way to share what was going with and what I was experiencing. It also allowed me to give a certain personality to the way I presented the trip to the people who were keeping up with what I was doing.

The expectations of what you were going to be reading were also very much inline with what I was hoping to write. On the spectrum of Twitter to Ph.D. thesis, blogging (to me) lands solidly between facebook and short stories. A paragraph or two. Not too long, not too short. These expectations also allow you throw a few curve balls in there. A nice 700 word essay “On The Migratory Habits Of The Common Fir Tree” will get people’s attention, as will a tweet-like post i.e., “On…”, “Nothing at all.”

Not that anything above is particularly insightful or helpful to the masses out there, but I needed to get a second post up, so this is what you get.

Roll On.

On Getting Started

It’s time the world got a little more interesting.  Hence the appearance of The On Blog.  While we are hoping this will be an entertaining exercise, you should not be expecting investigative journalism, deep philosophical musings or even correct spelling and grammar.  If you are, that’s on you, not the blog.

Where Am I?
