Just sneaking in a quick mindless post before I get into the more dour stuff. Writing for the sake of writing is fun, used to do it all the time-been 'bout 8 years since I was doing the last of it.
I've done two posts on each blog now, and I've known since even before I sat down and created either blog that it wouldn't really take form until I've put up a third post. For both blogs, the first post was a basic introduction and the second was a refining of the theory and the idea behind why I wanted to create these in the first place. So, now on the 3rd post, the blog truly begins- that is it now truly takes on the form it will have from here into the foreseeable future.
Initially, this post was going to be all different. Some dry economic theory kinda thing (to follow shortly). But a little while ago I decided I still wanted to have some nonsense posts as well as some political/economics posts on these e-pages. They'll have little to nothing to do with each other, and should this blog eventually attract readers, they'll likely be turned off by one or the other. But a third blog seems a bit excessive, no?
Blogs are all about pouring out ideas on a web, and seeing what sticks. But I always found writing most entertaining when even the most poorly-formed ideas are allowed to come out, a nice brain purge if you will. To be honest, it's still hard for me right now to lower the internal censors enough to really let the nonsense come gushing out as it sees fit. Let's say I feel like I've got a mouthful of thoughts, but I've got a snorkel tube stuck on my lips so the only way to expel ideas is push them up and out through the top of the tube. Hopefully with a little practice at doing this again I'll be able to just open my mouth, so to speak, and let the thoughts come drooling out over my chin.
