Retooling

Circuit I am sure you have no doubt noticed I have not been updating my blog very much as of late. I think a large part of it is because when I write something these days I tend to focus too much on political stuff, and quite frankly writing about politics these days is not fun or interesting anymore. Far too often I find myself getting headaches out of anger since the more research I do for a piece, the more shit I find that really infuriates the hell out of me.

So going forward I am going to completely avoid politics as a subject around here. People who know me know where I stand, and if I do get the itch to write about politics I will likely post on a more appropriate site such as OpenLeft.

I am also going to remove all of my previous politically-oriented posts from this site. No, I am not hiding nor am I ashamed of what I have said, but I am doing so because I want this site to be a place to share and discuss fun stuff that I enjoy in life. Stuff like geeky tech gadgets, toys, cars, home projects, food, music, life, etc.

If someone is really interested in my previous political postings I have made here and since deleted, they can always use the WayBack Machine. Once you say something on the web these days you best be ready to stand by it because when it is out there, it is out there for good 🙂

Cheers,

The Obligatory “First” Post

Welcome to Jon’s Journal.

Well, this is my like my third try at putting a blog up. You all know what they say about “third time” so I will leave it at that and hope for the best.

I attempted to write a blog back in like 2002 when it was the “new” thing, but never really got into it. Perhaps it was the shitty blog sites out there, or the lack of motivation. Whatever it was that deterred me seems to have passed.

So what’s changed? Hell if I know, but I am a rather opinionated person and I have a lot of shit to say these days. Figure the frequency of updates on this site will depend on how busy I am at the moment, or if there is something that catches my attention that I feel like writing about.

For example, if I get home from work, nothing really happened, nothing really keeping my attention at the moment I might not post jack. But say that idiot Bush does something dumb (ok, so I might be updating the site quite frequently lol) I might come on here to rant. Or maybe I will watch something on pay-per-view that I never saw and feel the desire to write about it.

Either way, this will be my place to spill thoughts on technology, politics, news, entertainment, eating, life etc. I am leaving commenting enabled in case people feel the urge to discuss what I post, or to tell me to go to hell because they dislike what I wrote.

Let’s see how this thing works out.
