We interrupt this series of long posts to point out that my "about" page (Whimsley: Not a Blogger) is the only place on the entire Internet where you can read the word "agblosticism", meaning "scepticism about blogging".

it than the book thing: if you aim to gain an audience you have to pick
up on what other bloggers are writing about and respond within hours.
So really, blogging just isn’t my thing. The arguments go nowhere, no
one changes their mind, and the signal/noise ratio is very low. The
blogging world is a world built for quick-typing extroverts who don’t
