Dispatches, thoughts, and miscellanea from writer Jon Konrath


About Rumored

I’ve always hated the term blog, mostly because this was going for years before the term was invented. I used to call this a “journal,” but then LiveJournal came along and changed the meaning of that. I gave up and started calling this a blog about a year before blogging died completely. Now blogs are designed by SEO firms for dental practices. I still blog because I can’t draw, and don’t want to take golf lessons.
