My last post was pretty obtuse because I wasn’t yet ready to blog about blogging, but the reality is, I now work for Automattic, the makers of WordPress.
The thing about blogging is that it really works best when you’ve got, you know, something to talk about. And blogging about how you have nothing to blog about is like just about the most boring thing I can think of, so I haven’t been doing much of that lately. But now the platform on which my job rests is this platform of self-expression that has followed such a strange path from where it began to now. When can you say blogging started? When Blogger was invented? When someone built the first GeoCities page about their cat? It’s really hard to pinpoint when blogging began, but it’s easy to point to it today and call out how important and world-changing it’s been.
At any rate, I really do hope to be blogging more here, on this domain that I’ve co-owned since 2000. I actually have been blogging quite a bit over at my band’s blog, so you can go there and read some stuff about making music, if you want.
