What I Blog
I got recommitted to blogging not long ago, and while sometimes it seems pointless, I think I'm getting at something, and whatever that something is appears to be working.
I think blogging is about making a commitment to yourself: I have something to say, I am someone, I deserve an audience.
For iconoclasts, it's a way of insisting upon your point of view of the world.
To me, blogging is placing my hands on the chest of authority and shoving as hard as I can.
I had a friend when I was young. Her father was a brain surgeon, I believe. One time, I went over to their house, and there was a regular white bucket in the kitchen. Someone removed the lid from the bucket. There was a human brain floating in it.
That's what a blog is: a brain in a bucket, and you beholding it.
