"Welcome to WordPress. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start writing!"
I will do no such thing, auto-generated, gender-neutral WordPress narrator! And that's the end of it.
Actually, It's Only the Beginning...
... But that's both here and there.
And yes, it is absolutely ridiculous. Anyone who has used WordPress to design a website (which is likely almost a third of the known universe by now) knows that I just arbitrarily left the stupid default text at the top of this first post.
Not cool... And, yet, I actually think it's moderately cool (and not entirely abritrary).
Consider both: that the very notion of cutting against the societal grain is inherently a little cool (don't argue); and that WordPress is somewhat visionary in its insistence that we greet the entire world as virtual thought ambassadors.
So, in the cosmopolitan spirit of WordPress diplomacy...
Indeed. And I'm more excited than my tomfoolery illustrates. I am ecstatic to be able to introduce myself, and my new online home, to everyone who is kind enough to pay me a visit.
This website is about my own words, the world...
and the many textures of our mortality. Period.
I love to write, and I love to read... And I love turning over every single stone under which may be found something which adds depth and value to the whole experience .
