Taking the "we" out of "weblog"

I’m not new to reading blogs—I’ve been on slashdot since, well, I don’t remember but I have a 4-digit ID there so it must be long long ago. And in the intervening years I’ve started regularly reading a bunch of other blogs (both individual and news-aggregation sites.) But I didn’t think of starting blogging till quite recently. What held me back was the thought that I had nothing interesting to say. But now I realise that there are other blogs that say nothing, but are interesting anyway.

That, and I like the name beta blogger. Sounds (especially to Tamil speakers) like a drug to control hypertension.

I tend to mix work and non-work pretty freely, and this is good when work is exciting: I get a lot done very quickly. But at other times I end up surfing the net much of the day. So I recently declared to myself that I will not do non-work-related surfing during working hours. (Let’s see how long that lasts). Therefore, this is likely to be a bedtime blog (hence the title, borrowed from Mingus). (And—due acknowledgement—the title of this post comes from User Friendly.)

So much for me and my motivations for blogging. My future entries will be about other things.
