A weblog as a personal chronicle…

There seems to be a trend at the moment for webloggers presenting galleries of themselves through time, and I think it’s a trend that I like and might have to participate in. The latest casualty of the desire to present one’s gradual slump into senility is ‘er at NotSoSoft. It’s astonishing how different one can look and still be recognisably the same. I’m gradually coming to the conclusion that weblogs act as a chronicler – as a way of cementing memory and narrative, as a way of making sense of one’s own life to date.
