old dog, new tricks

I'm intrigued by blogging. On the one hand, it's nothing more complicated than keeping a journal. But this journal is open to the world.

Blogspot software is brilliant. I spent some time trying to figure out how to duplicate this kind of "entry" template, which would give me a text window, automatically stack recent entries at the top, and provide a search function. It was beyond me.

But given these built-in tools, blogging is simple. But simple doesn't automatically equate to interesting.

I almost went back and renamed this blog "Captain's Log." I am the administrator of a public library. But I'm sure it's been done!
