I am too real for blogging, or maybe just haven't figured it out.

I'm currently traveling in a country where bombing the shit out of people is considered a legitimate activity, so I've been spending a fair amount of time on the internet to keep from going nutso. Anyway, I've realized that for years I've been collecting blogworthy content, but have been too busy actually living an interesting life to bother to post any of it. In fact a great deal of the stuff I've found and produced isn't even digitized yet, and has been languishing in browsing histories, little black notebooks, shoe boxes and slide binders for, well, ever. That should change, once I'm back to base. The internet desrves to know what a meaningful and content-filled life I lead, and while the only people who give a damn about my cabbing experiences are anthropology grad students, my other interests/writing/photos may have wider appeal. Just a guess. Who knows. Too bad I'm literally halfway around the world from all that stuff.

Another thing: is it ok to blog stuff that you made in the past? Aren't blogs chronological, and won't it be screwing up the natural order of blogtime to post a bunch of shit all at once that ought to have come out sequentially when it was first produced?

Blogging is confusing.
