Chattering into the void

Feb 7, 2010 | content | 0 comments

I’ve been blogging since somewhere late in 2002.  I’ve been through Ujournal, onto Livejournal (which I still use to this day), and then here, but I’ve always felt like I was chattering into the void.

Others refer to it as looking into the void – ‘if you look into the abyss, the abyss looks back’ (paraphrased, Friedrich Nietzsche) and eventually it’ll look back.  I’ve always wondered if blogging is a bit like that.  You talk and talk and talk, and eventually, people talk back.

So I thought I’d say thank you to the ‘people’ talking back. Your comments are always welcome, and though sometimes it seems like I’m chattering into the void, and not saying anything to anyone at all, I’m always thinking of my regular commenters and looking for their opinions, and fresh voices to give me new insight.

Thank you.

The Covidcoaster – a week of ill #Mondayblogs #rungirlrun #kaiatus #Bloggingfromatoz

Last Monday, I posted about how myself and my youngest tested positive for CV19. Monday/Tuesday, I started getting really sick. Monday, I'd been quite cheerful - after all, Artenapan, my daughter, had had three days of a cough and little else. That's not how it played...
