It's probably two years since I registered as chthon on Slashdot. I have never used the journal before, although I have opinions on many things. My problem is that before long, my opinion becomes a rant which goes on in all directions.
I thought about it some time, and the advantage of this Slashdot journal is that I do not need a real website, nor that I have to go through the trouble to install blogging software.
It is on the Web, I can use it if I want to.
My personal goals in using this journal are :
- Clear up my mind around a whole lot of topics that are waiting.
- Learn to write creatively.
- Try to write as writers that I like, with different purposes for different writers (want some names ? Vance for his eloquence, Voltaire for his nasty pen, Demosthenes to learn how to convince people).
I will also write some times in Dutch, because there are some topics here in Europe that must be discussed. If I have time I will translate them, which is also a good exercise (it is easier for me to write in English than to translate from Dutch to English).
