It’s a blog.
And you are currently reading it (welcome!).
Seriously, though… In this age of “social media”, why should I host my own blog? Well, I’m just seeking a little more sense of (perhaps illusory) control over my own web presence. I don’t like having corporations track my every click for advertising purposes, so I don’t have a Facebook account, and I hardly use my Google+ account. So this is where friends, family, and random visitors can find me, documenting whatever has momentarily caught my attention. Feel free to comment (or not) as the spirit moves you.
