All of which is to say nothing much at all

First posts are about getting words on the page, not about saying anything particular, amiright? They're about overcoming paralysis.

This is why all of my university essays started with two paragraphs of lorem ipsum. I would otherwise sit for hours, staring at the blank page of the word processor, too hesitant to start. A post-less blog template creates much the same feeling.

My first blog post ever (way back in 2003) said this:

Hey look, a blog! 
Had to sign up with Xanga to add a comment to Ruth's page. 
Well, we shall see where this goes. Maybe this time I'll actually stick to a blog after making it. 
Maybe.

Xanga! Does anyone use Xanga anymore? (Does anyone use blogger anymore?)
