I Can't Believe It

Amidst the absurdity of it all (and by it- I mean our daily lives) I have decided to join the force, the power, the source for all that is right, pertinent, and true* these days, and start my own blog. The internet as defined by wikipedia: a worldwide, publicly accessible series of interconnected computer networks that transmit data by packet switching using the standard Internet Protocol (IP). It is a "network of networks" that consists of millions of smaller domestic, academic, business, and government networks, which together carry various information and services, such as electronic mail, online chat, file transfer, and the interlinked web pages and other resources of the World Wide Web (WWW).

As I sort out the meaning of a blog in my own life, I go to the definition now of Blog,
A blog (a portmanteau of web log) is a website where entries are commonly displayed in reverse chronological order. "Blog" can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.

Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject; others function as more personal online diaries. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, web pages, and other media related to its topic. The ability for readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs. Most blogs are primarily textual, although some focus on art (artlog), photographs (photoblog), sketchblog, videos (vlog), music (MP3 blog), audio (podcasting) are part of a wider network of social media. Micro-blogging is another type of blogging which consists of blogs with very short posts.

I am not going to categorize my own blog at the start, I am starting one for merely to start one, for its own sake. Perhaps to create some sort of community to read my thoughts, expressions, stories, reportings, and opinions or just to have a place to write regularly.

*Because if it's on the internet it must be true!
