I have always felt so-so about blogs. I enjoyed reading them, but I never imagined myself having one. I thought they were a waste of time, so I didn’t give the concept of having one much thought. That was a mistake. One day, from out of the blue, my dad declared that he was going to start a blog. My whole family thought he was nuts. He thought it was an amazing idea, and that he would get famous and be on the news. He made a bet with us that he would have over 100 subscribers by the end of summer. That was some easy money. (I don’t want to give you the URL, though, because I don’t want anyone to subscribe to it.) I continued on with my daily life until I had an interesting news feed pop up in Akgregator: “New FSDaily feature: community blogs!”. My initial reaction was, “Has the whole gotten blogging fever?”, but then, it occurred to me: people may like to read about my opinions. Why? Because I am a high school student who is a FOSS advocate. I have a hunch there aren’t too many of those around. So I had a discussion with my father. In the end, there was an additional bet: that my blog would have more subscribers than his. I went to go start blogging with FSDaily, but I didn’t really like the platform. Therefore, I went here instead.
