And these were all things I just casually walked past and took pictures of.
Why do a links post at all? I was imagining somebody from my real life stumbling upon my stupid blog the other day and being very confused about this, uh, hobby of mine. What on earth am I doing this for week after week?
How would I explain taking all the time … and the planning to get all these links together in one place? It’s not original content and, at least for me, it’s not like it generates a whole lot of new readership or anything like that. I can’t say “oh I keep a blog so my family knows what I’m up to”. It’s kind of weird. There is no discernible purpose.
So what’s the answer?
I don’t know! I guess I’m just really interested in sharing ideas and information with people. A lot of the articles I post are controversial or might not be anything I can use personally, but if I think it may be useful to someone else I’ll throw it in here anyway.
Regardless of my reasoning, or lack thereof, it’s fun for me to feel like I’m sharing some of the coolest things on the internet and I hope some of you appreciate it.
Anyway, onward to the links.
