      1 # welcome (why I'll give blogging another try)
      2 <!--[time 201711181325.54]-->
      4 last Friday (10 Nov 2017) I felt unusually motivated to organise quite a
      5 few aspects of my life. among those included finally setting up TFA on
      6 some of my online accounts, adopting a better password-management system
      7 than I had, and composing some to-do lists. recently, I have also been
      8 more interested in philosophy, spirituality, and faith/scepticism in the
      9 unknown, and I felt it would be constructive to be able to lay my
     10 thoughts out in front of me rather than keep them in my head. and while
     11 I'm at it, why not do it online so others can consider a thing or two
     12 from what I'm thinking?
     14 I have previously written a few guides and opinion pieces but they are
     15 scattered about and people will not bother looking for them, really. I
     16 want to continue this trend of guiding, helping, collaborating with
     17 others so that we may all improve our knowledge and possibly build a
     18 better world worth living.
     20 here's what you should expect if you do decide to keep up with my site:
     22 * I hope to create weekly posts -- I have plenty of subjects listed out
     23   already, so a shortage of ideas is not an immediate threat at all. I
     24   probably have enough to last me a few months at this rate.
     25 * I accept feedback, currently only over E-mail at <> so
     26   just put in the subject that you're replying to a specific article I
     27   wrote. if your query warrants a public reply, I'll write a response on
     28   my next blog entry.
     29 * I want each entry to focus as a sort of canary. I experimented with a
     30   PGP canary in the past with limited success, mainly because I knew
     31   that nobody was checking it and it took me too much effort to generate
     32   canaries. maybe now I have a better system: I'll simply PGP sign my
     33   posts, maybe with a recent news article at the end of my post, and if
     34   I haven't posted a blog entry in a week or two then that must mean
     35   something's happened with me or my stuff.
     37 please E-mail me if you're actually interested in keeping up with my
     38 writing and my PGP canary; it would really help me stay motivated to
     39 write quality content and to maintain a level of cryptographic trust
     40 with whoever cares about my well-being. but of course, if no one ends up
     41 reading my blog, I'll hopefully still find it useful as a sort of diary
     42 to collect my thoughts and process them more thoroughly.
     44 I'll see how this experiment goes and dive right in next week. this week
     45 I have a school research paper due and some upcoming tests, so I'm too
     46 busy to put my efforts in my personal projects.
