The end

Back in the day, I used to blog about events. Things I did, places I went, people I met. I remember posting pictures with captions. This was all before the whole big "blog movement" began. Digital cameras were still fairly new and I was one of the few who had one, so I posted just about anything we (Lon and I) saw. It was the days when you took a picture of *anything* at all — because you could — because we couldn't get over the concept that nothing was a waste of film. And plus you wanted to justify how much you spent on the darned thing.

Blogging came naturally then. When I did something, I posted about it. I didn't post daily because I wanted people to know what I had done, I did it as a personal journal and I didn't feel like I had to update in order to get people to read, because as far as I knew, I didn't have any readers. People would ask me where I posted yesterday's pictures, and I would point them to my IP address.

I don't have a whole lot to blog about anymore. With the daily grind of work — that and living alone, means nothing really happens. I find I have nothing to post about unless I have recently been with someone. No one wants to hear about my gaming experiences, nor do I really want to post about them. Perhaps, I can take photos of the dishes I cook, but what good would that do? It's not interesting.

For this reason I've decided to discontinue my bnyao.blogspot.com blog site, for the simple reason that I have nothing to say there that I can't say here. And I plan to close this one down shortly after if I find I can't become more active here. Nothing is more "ugh" than constantly checking a website that isn't up-to-date. It's a matter of principle — if I can't keep it up to date, then I won't have it.

actually, i never check. my rss feader does it automatically for me so i know when you update (that's what http://ebrian.blogspot.com/atom.xml is for) :). which is why i'm glad you've enabled the "enable feed" option on blogspot ~ so thanks!

btw, i remember all your pics too for some weird reason.
