Two sets: “why” and “what”?
The second set, “what do I blog about at TWC” is easy: darned near everything. Political and social issues and trends? Yep. Computer stuff? Uh-huh. Personal events in my life? Yeh, I do some “journal” type blogging at TWC, too. Music, books, other arts? Of course. Plain old silliness? Mais certainment, mon amis! Science and technology, philosophy and theology?
Why? There’s just a lot going on in my head all the time.
IOW, as I frequently say, I blog at TWC to silence the voices in my head.
And then there are the other voices I blog about. What’s going on in the blogosphere in general, sometimes, or specifically with blogbuds.
I do not do this for the money. There is none, as far as I have ever seen. (Update! I made $3.43 from blogging last year! *LOL* Still haven’t gotten the check from [Xx]azon.com, though) No one “owns”–or ever will own–or rents my words. Everything here is my observations, my thoughts, my opinions, pure and simple, except where I indicate I am quoting or referring to others’ thoughts, words or deeds. And even then, I’ll attach my own perceptions of those thoughts, words or deeds, if only in how I present them.
And I reserve the right to speak complete nonsense (see “silliness” reference above) if I wish to. Usually, I’ll give some indication that I’m doing so, but if I do write something that’s nonsense, and I don’t hang out some obvious sign that I’m doing so, AND you are simply too dull to catch it, no problems. We’ll both just blame your mother.
Anyone, and I do mean anyone, who attempts to censor TWC had better have a darned good right and reson to do so. As far as I can tell, only God has that right. If the FEC or some other governmental agency attempts to in any way regulate my speech, I’ll spit in their faces.
And I just might mean that literally.
Addendum. For the vast number of folks (all both of you) who have asked for a picture of the evil “mystery”rmind behind third world county, here’s a recent pic I took of myself:
There. That ought to clear things up.
