Blogging & Facebook

There hasn’t been much blogging on my part over the last couple of years.  Frankly, most of my posting has been on Facebook or Twitter.  The inevitable progress of technology and the new-new-new thing.  What’s next?  No idea.  Yet, I control this space all the way down to the cgi and I’m not being exploited by the data gathering crowd.  I like Facebook and all the positive stuff it provides, but I’m not naive.

If, in fact, I use this space as I say I do in the “Notice,” well, I haven’t been.  To keep the stuff I like and want to come back to here, I’m less beholden to anyone else.  So, perhaps a flurry of activity for a while.

On the other hand, I’m also considering that there might be a better venue for this kind of thing.  Tumblr, perhaps, but all the stuff is saved on their servers and I’m at their disposal.  Besides, with ten years of stuff, I don’t want to just jump ship.  I can’t import all past stuff into Tumblr, else I just might.

That Which Endures

“So far as a man may be proud of a religion rooted in humility, I am very proud of my religion; I am especially proud of those parts of it that are most commonly called superstition. I am proud of being fettered by antiquated dogmas and enslaved by dead creeds (as my journalistic friends repeat with so much pertinacity), for I know very well that it is the heretical creeds that are dead, and that it is only the reasonable dogma that lives long enough to be called antiquated.”

–GK Chesterton
