Maybe posting daily isn’t a realistic goal. I’ve failed at it, so far, but I also wonder if there’s any point in posting just for the sake of it. If I have nothing much to say, why make a post?
But I committed to posting something every weekday in September. It’s literally only day two, and I’m out of ideas. Partly, this is because I’m incredibly tired. I haven’t been sleeping well this week. On the plus side, tonight is pre-season practice bowling and league play starts on Monday.
Yesterday, I saw this blog post, On Tweeting (Instead of Writing), come across my Mastodon timeline. I’ve lost track of who shared it, so I can’t credit them, but it got me thinking that I should apply the same rule on Mastodon (actually, the “rule” is from another blog post by the same author, referenced […]
#OpenWeb is trending right now. At least, I suspect it is. It’s kind of hard to accurately determine what’s trending on the open, decentralized web. And that’s a good thing. Regardless of whether or not it’s actually trending, there is a lot of talk about the open web right now. Much of this talk is […]
Whether presented as a self-improvement project (update your house lest you be judged for owning a dated one) or a form of self-care (renovate because it will make you feel better), the home remodel is presented as both remedy and requirement.

When I was a kid, my parents often asked, “If all your friends jumped off a bridge, would you do it too?” I’m sure many of you had similar experiences. It was, and maybe still is, the pat response to a child implying they should be allowed to do something for no reason other than […]
This concept for a three-story tiny house that fits in the footprint of a parking space is a neat idea, but the initial prototype has some fairly obvious flaws. It has no kitchen or running water because it’s “based on the reasoning that someone living in the middle of an urban neighborhood could get food elsewhere […]
I think I’m going to do NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) this year. It’ll be the first time in years that I’ve participated, but it’ll at least give me a reason to write a lot. The end result will likely suck, but that’s OK. NaNoWriMo is ultimately about quantity over quality. If there’s a kernel of […]
@mpjgregoire @kepstin @firstname.lastname@example.org True, but when a family with an annual household income of $200,000 thinks they’re middle class, it’s a bit silly. That’s double the median income of even a wealthy province like Alberta. Those people have very different class interests than a single person bringing home $30,000-45,000 a year. They might both say […]
