A manifesto for an unremarkable blog:

This blog will cast thoughts onto the datasphere like bread for ducks. A few crumbs might get nibbled up, but most of it will go soggy and sink.
This blog may voice opinions, but will not engage in blogospheric debates. They’re exhausting.
This blog will not contain controversy. Probably.
This blog may not be interesting to anyone but me.
This blog will talk mostly about music and writing and football, among other subjects.
This blog will link to some of my friends.
This blog will be irregular and erratic and organic.
This blog is not an advert for my writing.
This blog is not the key to me.

On with the nonsense.

  1. Every blogger’s manifesto deserves a reader’s manifesto in response.

    This reader will gobble like a hungry duck the crumbs cast upon the waters.
    This reader will voice opinions back in the certainty that a quick exchange
    of quips beats volumes of flames and needle-splitting.
    This reader looks forward to be astonished not outraged by the blog.
    This reader likes music and writing and football.
    This reader looks forward to irregularity and errata and sticky gooey
    things.
    This reader knows the blogger doesn’t need to advertise the writing.
    And who needs a key when the door’s so interesting.

    Nonsense on…
