I just renamed the
/blog on my website to
/weblog. I think it sounds cooler and fits better with what I want to do here. The term “blog” has a lot of connotations nowadays.

The audience is me as much as anyone else, and I’m not trying to curate my online persona to be anything specific.
The term “weblog” is supposedly a precursor to “blog”, and it hearkens back to a simpler era of the Internet. A time that was better in many ways, some of which I think we can get back to. So here’s to trying.
