About this blog

This is my third attempt at a blog. All preceding attempts failed very shortly after their inception, despite what in retrospect were much better conditions for blogging in general. Yet here I am again, repeating the same action and expecting a different result. Such foolishness demands an explanation.

Obviously, on one level I’m jumping on the text-web revival bandwagon most visible in all these new substack newsletters, but also in projects like gemini and the small web.

However, I’m not here to run a grift. My motivations are esoterically personal and straightforwardly political. This blog is an open notebook, a messy place for bricolage, in my attempts to work out a communist project fit for the 21st century.

For those that care, it’s also using the XMin Hugo theme available on Github and hosted using netlify.
