The Birth of Tragedy

I'm setting off on a dangerous and unpaved path: I am making a blog. No one has ever done this before, hardly anyone knows what a blog is except for totally smart people. My plan for this blog is to start off with a few polished posts--composed in perfect 5 paragraph format--that are sufficiently ironic and quirky but also appropriately modest and also entirely inauthentic. The blog will then spiral off into neglect as my initial naivety becomes tempered with the powerful reality of nature's indifference and my own irrepressible laziness.

If this blog affects only one person then it will be a failure. This blog must affect at least 6 people (for better or worse) in order for me to cover my own costs.
