An introduction to this experiment

Blogs, blogs, blogs. There are so many different platforms to choose from these days -- not just the usual WordPress or Tumblr, but also you've also got folk like Atavist, Medium.

Dreamwdith, being based on the LiveJournal sourcecode, is rather old-school, but that's what I like about it, too. LiveJournal was developed at a time when many people were still on dial-up and high-speed internet was a slowly emerging phenomenon. Image sharing was tedious back then, never mind video sharing. Text was king on the world wide web, back in those days.

And that's what I would like to focus on, for this little 'experiment'. I'm always reading a book or watching TV/movies or catching up on news, and I'd like to talk about those things. I also want to try and be positive in this blog. I tend to veer to the cycnical and nihilistic, so I'd like to change things up and focus on celebrating the nice stuff.

Here goes!
