What Goes into a Blog?
To be honest, I’m not the blogging type.
Shocking, I know, but I’m afraid it’s true. I’m much too shy to bare my soul on the web. I’ve never gotten into Facebook and Twitter escapes me (I’m too long winded for the character limit anyhow). Those people who can sit down and in an hour write a riveting post about their life that week, complete with their inner thoughts, their goals and ramblings… I envy them, because that’s just not me.
I’m much more the academic, the nerd who likes the comfort of a structured essay; I find a well-written thesis homey and inviting. At my core I’m a historian, a student of politics, religion, and culture, and I’m drawn to thick, heavy books you could build a house with (Yet I still haven’t read Game of Thrones… The world works in weird ways sometimes). I watch Crash Course World History for fun.
