ok, so this morning, sitting at my wife’s computer, i read a little mildly funny list (the post below this one), and posted it.
then i got myself dressed and drove into work. and the whole time i was thinking, “crap, now i’m one of *those blogs* that don’t actually write stuff, and are just full of random junk from other locations” (that kind of blog occasionally pisses me off (ooh, rage-man!). and, the level of actual humor in the post is only a 6 or 6.5 on a 10-point scale, i’d say. i decided to remove the post as soon as i got to work.
now i’m at work, and i’m undecided. on one hand, i don’t want this blog to either…

b. get filled with copy-and-pasted stuff, thereby allowing me to hide behind it all and never self-disclose or deal with my own thoughts or emotions that feel risky to put down on e-paper.
but, on the other hand, i don’t want to slip into…
c. pretentious blogger who thinks i’m solving the problems of the universe and takes himself way too seriously, even deriving his self-worth from his presence in blog-land.
