Vegetarian Shoes - Apollo Black

Vegetarian Shoes - Apollo Black

My new shoes have just arrived from UK-based Vegetarian Shoes! They make high quality footwear using no animal products and this is the 3rd time I’ve bought from them. I’ve got no affiliation with the company, just one satisfied customer.

Part of my lifestyle includes an effort to avoid actions that directly require killing other creatures. This has mainly led to me being a vegetarian and choosing not to use products made from new leather and other animal remains.


Over a month!

My little blog is over a month old this week!

It’s been fun exploring the bounds of keeping a public journal…

what can I say… but won’t?
what can’t I say… but will?

One of the great things about my site is that it’s got me writing again. Writing is a great way to get the creative juices flowing and practice critical thinking.

Here’s to a good start and a long, fun future of!

It really is amazing how much time can be sunk into into a website without seeing a whole lot change on the surface.

One week ago I was a mild-mannered internet user, whose biggest presence on the internet was a bunch of webmail accounts at different services. Now I find myself with my own domain. An integrated part of the network. A node.


How to blog…

Friday, September 1st, 2006

And so I find myself entering the wild, wicked world of self-publishing a little later than I expected. I am a long-time advanced computer user with a keen interest in the diy aspect of the internet, but to this point have been mostly a casual observer of all things web.

No more!

I envision this blog running the gamut of personal observation:

interesting events and people, strange and new experiences, thoughts, and ideas, all with an odd and sometimes inappropriately-timed sense of humour.

Basically, an outward expression of the long-running story inside my head, but with rss feeds.

I look forward to connecting with and learning about all you cool folks out there in interwebland. You with your own whacky, unpredictable, fascinating minds. In this sense, my blog is an invitation to meet you. So comment, communicate, share, and let’s make the world go round.

Finally, this blog is a test of my ability to commit to diarizing and sharing what I see and hear with the rest of the world. I suppose at first nobody really knows how they’ll react to placing themselves and their ideas at the mercy of so many others all at once.

Only one way to find out!
