wait—whats an anti-blog?
or, rationale, c. 5/1/02.
Let's just get this out of the way right now: This is the first and best anti-blog, bar none. As far as I'm concerned, it's the only anti-blog.
But what precisely is an anti-blog? Okay, it's basically just a weblog, except:
- It's a fairly weak variety of weblog, since I am too slothful (or otherwise busy) to update it every day or even every week.
- It resides on an "old-school," hand-coded website of original design, not some template-based, web-based-form-interface, cookie-cutter site. (Am I stupid or merely true to my craft? You decide.) Of course, the truly savvy way to do this would be to use an original design and a labor-saving, reliable back end system. [Eventually.]
- It started as an attempt to ironically transcend narcissism (and probably failed). (Note: though its jocularity disguises a painful kernel of truth, the preceding sentence is self-satire.)
Weak, I know, but I'm stuck with it until I can come up with something better.
The good news is that this site has helped me become a better writer and designer (this is roughly version 3). It might even help me get my next job.

Todd C. Jenner is an excellent friend and an even better source of humorous concepts, such as the "anti-" concept. Thanks, Todd! [I still maintain that I independently devised the "anti-" concept in 5th grade, when I made a pin-on badge that sported the phrase "ANTI-BUTTON," but whatever.]
