If you were to ask why I haven’t written in a few days, there are a lot of possible answers that I could give you. Most of them are true, except for the one where I tell you that I didn’t write because I was held captive by samurai – that one’s not true….yet. Among the more “real” responses to that question are “because I was moving from my dorm to an apartment”, “because I was completely caught up in trying to learn buffer overflows and wouldn’t rest until I could get one to work”, “because I felt that I had nothing to write about” and “because I was taking finals and writing final papers”.
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking recently about how I want this blog to go. I seem to be leaning in the direction of making it much more tech-oriented, despite the fact that certain sectors of my psyche get very angry with that idea. I’m not worried about those sectors, though, so I plan to start doing a lot more tutorials and writing about technology in general. It’s something I think I can do well at. For close to six months, I’ve used this blog basically as a place to dump all the thoughts of a day out of my mind, a process which, while being quite therapeutic, probably yields incredibly uninteresting reading. Not that I’m just in blogging for the popularity – readership really isn’t my primary concern. But I’m realizing the power of the blog platform and that it’s totally within my reach to do something awesome with it.
So with that new knowledge (or assumption), I’m going to attempt and change the focus of this blog just by changing what I write about. Expect much more knowledge to flow forth from my brain to yours.
