Hopefully I only spend one day per week in average to read other people's blogs. Especially the ones in the greek blog-o-sphere (as they say there ;). It just happened that I read the blog of that famous greek writer (http://nikosdimou.blogspot.com/) who gets a vast amount of replies (in hundreds) again. I actually rarely try to read the replies because they are fuckin too much for my time. Though, today I started browsing the blogs of some of the users replying to his blog once again, to find out other interesting blogs and replies which led me to several other blogs, etc, etc. Too much data for me, just about everyone likes to rant today and usually there are several funny or interesting texts in well written greek that leads you to various new subjects, links and docs you wished you had the time to read,. yet another link, yet another blog. And then I was addicted! I read various random blogs, stayed to the ones which I found interesting or funny, linked to new users to check if I like their blog and continued browsing around without a point, a meaning..
Not that I don't check english written blogs (I check mostly the ones from people who replied in my messages till today), but it happened that I am mainly hooked to the greek blog-o-sphere for the moment. But then there is too much information and I should be coding now..
My head is aching but that's probably because of the lonely whiskey assisted night. Uberinformation reminds you of the several things, several books, several creations, several hobbies, several places, several plans, several dreams that you always wanted to do/read/publish/try out/visit/make real and again make real. Perhaps I could either live on what comes ahead or try to concentrate on the few good things inside the pile of garbage, or (3rd option) to make some more carefull plans on how to deal with my time so that I can try much more and newer stuff than with my current potentional. I'd like to try some other hobbies and read some books on new subjects, create stuff in other fields and scenes/communities, to try out random weird stuff I read in strange magazines or books or just came in my head, make some tests by living a totally diferrent life of an unknown self for one week, various random and interesting stuff I could live in my life, but I have tried hardly most of them. The demoscene is already pwning my life and yet it's an interesting social experiment and a creative world that could also be in this "to do but never start" list if it came 2nd beneath another hobby as 1st to occupy my activities.
So many blogs, so many worlds I'd like to explore. Old written thoughts by writers I never met, places I've never seen, alternative ways of life I never tried, our life is too short for trying everything. Should we only live the important things and put the rest to the garbage? But who the hell has the right to tell me what's to live and what's not? I'd just continue walking the road of life and let myself discover what comes along. (or is it just the road that follows my steps as I like to say? ;)
The days of the blog domination: Just about everyone wants to be an Optimus today! =)
p.s. I have a new blog, CTRL+SHIFT+ESC for my Amstrad CPC activities.
p.p.s. Maybe I'll open a third blog soon, written in greek language so that I can connect well to the greek blog-o-sphere.
