For the last four? five years? I’ve sported the same old quote on the top right of this blog, under “What the CDB”, a slight rewording of my favorite desert author.

Time it was to change out the quote, and I found a good one in reading a paper, this originally from Henry Miller, but with my own edit from “writing” to “blogging”:

Somewhere along the way one discovers that what one has to [blog] is not nearly as important as the [blogging] itself.

I’ll be looking to swap these out on some semi-irregular interval, and set up an archive (with a vast set of TWO listed) at http://cogdogblog.com/quotes/. I’m looking at ones I can paraphrase to support the essence of blogging, despite its oft-rumored deadness, it is the most important mark you can make on this digital world.

Heck, I feel more literary already.

An early 90s builder of the web and blogging Alan Levine barks at CogDogBlog.com on web storytelling (#ds106 #4life), photography, bending WordPress, and serendipity in the infinite internet river. He thinks it's weird to write about himself in the third person.
