For National Blog Post Month, I will be publishing a new blog post on midnight (UTC) of every day of November. This is the first such post.
When I started this blog, I did not know what the blog’s focus should be. And initially, there was basically no focus. That grew organically over time.
Now, I have a pretty good idea about the kind of content I’d like to put on this blog (as opposed to my more technical GitHub Pages site, wafy.me). It’s a place where I draft a refreshing, modern, and optimistic view about life, society, and the future. It’s a place where I can express my ideas and beliefs, including controversial ones (like abolishing Valentine’s Day).
And indeed, most of the blog posts recently have tended towards that kind of expression. That doesn’t mean that I won’t continue to post interesting topics such as a procedural novel generator or an order-of-magnitude visualization, but these won’t be the true focus of this blog.
I don’t claim to be well-researched in any of the topics I write about. I simply write about what I think, and what I think is based off what I think I know. And therefore, I am open to being corrected. For example, I’ve had objections to my GMO blog post, which before used sources that were inaccurate and biased. My opinion on the matter has not really changed, but I have included the correction on the post itself in hopes that it is now more fair and factually correct.
On the other hand, I do hope that my thoughts on society are themselves thought-provoking. I hope that you, dear readers, enjoy reading them as much as I enjoy writing them. And of course, I’d be very interested in reading yours—I encourage you to leave comments.
