📝 Blogroll: Share your blog posts!

See, I kind of struggle with the opposite–being concise, that is. I write way too many sentences in general and always want to add ALL the details. I feel like I probably drive people away with my big walls of text, lol.

Just threw up a blog post that’s mostly images, about some Artist Trading Cards I’ve been making:

It’s OK to be prolix, especially in a rough draft. You can always cut things down in revisions.

Also, it’s generally not a good idea to revise while drafting. It’s like trying to polish a turd before you’ve squeezed the whole thing out.

Not to get off topic, but not allowing workers to sit is inhumane. It really needs to change. <3

Here’s something I wrote last week about an old book I found.

And here’s me griping about the upcoming election. Discourse is still pulling the old summary for some reason.

I added a point about that to my article + a point about lost works created a long time and a point about works whose author decided not to share because they were trivial.

It’s Weekly Wrap Up 9! Shorter entry since I didn’t get to it until late but I watched some movies and played some games.

I spent Saturday night thinking about consciously choosing to believe, and how ridiculous it is that some people think that reading the Bible can lead somebody to faith when it led me away from it – especially when Christianity is so frequently misused in the US as an apologetics for tyranny.

That’s a neat way to rethink footnotes - I like it!

Thanks, and one of my examples now has a cat to prove that you can put anything in an <aside> – including a cat.

Here’s something that isn’t tech or something depressing like religion or politics.

It’s Sunday so time for the Weekly Wrap Up 10. As usual I talk about what I watched and read but also about wind phones, cell phones and an ultimately disappointing quest for graphics.

Caffeine doesn’t, or barely works for me. I could quite literally drink one, and go to sleep. They to me, just taste good. All energy drinks do. But especially the white monster (and pink one too, pipeline punch do be good).

I only drink Monster for the caffeine, and I’ve been making my own energy drinks instead. Nothing but cold-brewed matcha tea with honey, ginger, and cinnamon. It’s not necessarily healthier, but it seems cheaper since I can get the matcha for $20 and it lasts at least 4 months.

I forgot to prep a coldbrew last night so I ended up making a green tea slushie this morning instead. Works pretty well, except it can be hard to suck up the last of the slush with a straw. Might add more water.

If I die, I die. Why should I forbid myself comforts for perceived “health”? It’s pointless. Maybe I’m just biased, as a picky eater but whatevs.

I know this song pretty well myself. I call it, “It’s my funeral and I’ll die if I want to”. (My wife hates it, especially when I break out the falsetto to sing it properly.) And what you call “girl dinner” I call “bachelor chow”.

we used a Numbers Milestone as an excuse to do a q&a!! it was pretty fun. usually we don’t care about numbers and followers and viewcounts, but we had been itching to do a q&a thingy for a while and the numbers in question were wonderful multiples of 5, which made me very happy.

the actual blog post is here lol
