Blog Posts as Dibs and Apologetics
This is an evolving post...
Let’s be honest here, most of the things I write on this site are dressed-up versions of proof of originality in the form of “I thought of this nebulous thing on X date!” Most of the posts aren’t particularly well-researched nor did they consume an impressive amount of my time to compose. All or most of them include subtle or overt apologies for their current state and questionable promises regarding what they will eventually become. In some ill-defined future where I’m a scholar in every field.
Recursive case-in-point: This post itself is the grandparent of apologetics. And the primordial Dibs on the idea that this blog is all dibs and apologetic.
If I said it first then you can’t accuse me of it!
