Blogs and Blogs

Sometimes I read something that makes me remember the reason that blogs are actually popular. To tell the truth most of the blogs I regularly read contain mainly technical discussions about web design, but occasionally I happen across a more traditional, personal entry. So it was just now. This entry isn’t that clever and it’s not the greatest bit of writing the world will ever see. But it is a wonderful insight into somebody’s life, an attempt to express one of those things which words can’t really cover, and an admirable job of it is done. You feel the happiness and you feel, well, the feeling.
This blog of mine doesn’t do that. I don’t think I’m capable of that sort of personal declaration to the anonymous world. I’ve never been one for self inspection (partly through fear of just what I might find). Sometimes I think my soul doesn’t bare baring (oh I’m being so clever today). Yet this is supposed to be the place I blog, “because I forget things”. Do those things include myself?
So I just made a deal with myself. allows you to write an email to be sent to any email address on a specified date in the future. Quite cool in itself, but Blogger allows you to email posts to your blog, so put the two together…(admitedtly I could set a posts date a year or whatever in the future on blogger, but it doesn’t auto post-though they might fix that-and I’m much more likely to forget it this way). So there’s a future email now carrying my best attempt at a personal post, set to publish a year from now, assuming they and this blog exist then.
