Hi guys.. and all the gals:)
Here’s my first post, and I wanna start by asking myself, and answering you people the question: Why BlogSpot?
K, so I first thought of putting up my own blog on my homepage. We all know that has disadvantages. 1. I get minimal search capabilities.. people can’t find me. 2. I’ve got to modify HTML code manually, not that I don’t like HTML (in fact I like it), but I use CVS and all that to keep track of my pages, and then every small post will be a hectic procedure. 3. I could keep a web interface for updating stuff, but then I have to have some world-writable files, which can be a security risk.
Another certain little information for those who intend to read my blogs: I have a double identity – one in the real world, and one in the e-world. While my e-Avatar has information of what I do in the real world, the real me doesn’t have any clue what my e-Avatar does.
In a nutshell, nothing in these blogs are to be discussed with me, or with others outside the scope of the internet.
The idea, is that I want to be freer in expressing myself on the blog, which may not be possible if I try to take everybody’s feelings and all that of the real world into account.
