My blag

Randall Munroe, creator of the fabulous and hilarious webcomic xkcd, calls his writings a “blag” instead of a blog. I don’t know if he originated this usage (if you look up “blag” on The Google you get “Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group” as the first hit), but I like the word; kind of a cross between “blog” and “brag.” Which is pretty much what a blog is, after all. It’s not like I’m writing this for posterity; I’m writing it to show you how clever I am (or not), or to sell you something, or just out of sheer vanity (sheer vanity is much more expensive than the coarse vanity one sees in the common shops).

Anyway, it’s going to be called a blag, and that’s that. I’ve tried this before, and never had the time or inclination to keep it up. But as Bullwinkle used to say, “this time for sure.”

So, welcome.
