A new beginning

Well, I think I've decided that, despite the fact that no one reads this blog, I'm going to try to post every weekday. Why? Oh, I don't know. I think maybe it's the whole Blog of Dreams thing: if I write it, they will come.

Of course, if I expect a wider audience to read this, then it had better be better than just the odd semi-coherent ramblings of the stereotypical blog. Sure, I'm the first to admit that my thoughts range far too far to stick to a particular theme, but that doesn't mean my posts must be meaningless. I think that, as long as I produce an opinion, and back it up, and write it well, then people may very well want to read it.

Perhaps that's vanity, thinking that my thoughts and the way I express them are inherently interesting. In fact, I'm pretty sure that's got to be something like vanity, since I've had very little external corroboration regarding this particular opinion. Then again, isn't all blogging, maybe even all writing, maybe even all creative ventures, isn't vanity in all such endeavours? At least a little bit?

I suspect so.

Here's hoping that others can appreciate my vanity.

Comments? Anyone?

Okay, so I know I don't post all that often, but you know what?!?! People comment on my posts even less! Now clearly, this means that I have few, if any, readers (and it's probably less than few). However, I like to delude myself into thinking that at least one person has read a few entries in this blog. So, like, if there is, could you, ummm, maybe make a comment on something, every once in a while?
