On Spam

It’s remarkable how much spam is directed at this little blog. In a given day, I’d say the Akismet plugin stops something like 5 to 8 spam comments from getting posted here. It’s absolutely infuriating and ridiculous, especially for such a podunk little no-name blog like this. I can’t imagine how many the big ones get!

On the other hand, it would be so much worse if the comments actually made it through. I should be grateful that Akismet is so good at stopping them (knock on wood).

Here we go again

It has been almost five years since I maintained a weblog on anything like a regular basis. My attempts since then at making regular observations on day-to-day life have been spotty at best, and all have been aborted before they had a chance to grow.

I hope that this time, finally, I’ll achieve the kind of momentum I need to keep writing. Will it work? Only time will tell.
