It’s been a while. After a flurry of activity on here back in August, following a blog reboot that I thought might spark my mind a bit, it kinda went dead. I’ve had that sort of on-off relationship with blogging for a long time, especially since social media started consuming everything. The Internet—which IMO has always been a questionable means of communication—has really taken a wrong turn in the last decade…

It remains a useful tool, but the more the Powers-That-Be try to push us into an all-digital existence, the less and less I want to depend on it. Simply put, it’s gotten to be too much. It has not made a healthy impression on people or society. Quite the opposite. The impact is disheartening.

And then, of course, there’s the endless COVID shit. But I don’t want to talk about it very much. It gets politicised in ways that I find asinine and depressing.

I do wonder how history will record all of this—assuming history as we know it survives at all.

Still. I’ve done a spring-clean and a bit of a redesign. So maybe I’ll try to write on here a bit more again.

See ya soon! Probably!

  1. I’m giving similar consideration to the future of my own website, which has lain undisturbed since September 2019. The chief difficulty, as also encountered with the Minds account I set up earlier this month, is attracting any kind of traffic: so-called “social media” is neither an efficient platform for communication nor particularly sociable (other than the lovely folks over on Dog Twitter, of course). Anyway, the jury’s still out.
