Welcome to the second post of my blog, David ex Machina! You might be wondering, what makes this blog worthwhile enough to exist in the blogosphere? Well, nothing yet, but how about having an introductory post as the second one for starters? Joking aside, I have several reasons for writing a blog. Having finished school I finally have more time; blogging can become my new homework assignment. Blogging is a great way to improve my writing skills, and it can be very therapeutic: instead of storing my ideas in the catacombs of my mind, I can share them with the world and see if they amount to anything. It is time for me to stop being just a consumer of internet media, and become a contributor. Given all the publishing power we freely wield nowadays, it is almost an insult not to use it. Finally, with sites like Rapleaf and Peekyou , I think it becomes more important to voice your own image on the web.
So what's this blog going to be like? Unlike most blogs that cater to a specific niche of the internet audience, this blog will not. Instead, I pledge to write about whatever I feel like. All posts will have at least one label to denote the categories they fall into. For example, the label for this post is "blog info." All posts related to information and details about this blog will be labeled the same. Certain things I may blog about include technology, societal analysis, and randomness. I will rant, rave, and tirade. I have a strange affinity with alliteration, and will use non sequiturs to prove a point. I will inject the level of cynicism, humor, satire, and seriousness that I see fit. From time to time, I may melange the language with styles and words ahead of their time (i.e. made up). Overall, I hope to spark the attention of the reader for the brief duration of a post, and would rather have a dialogue than a monologue, so feedback is always appreciated.
Enjoy, and thank you for reading,
