Here's something that might interest readers, most of whom come here for varied reasons. I began this blogging thing over four years and 1,600 posts ago as mostly a political, libertarian philosophy endeavor. Whether I'm just not that compelling, too enraged or outrageous, or simply because there's no way in the world I can write politically to swoon the mainstream of fucking idiots (see?), this blog has never been very popular. I'd say that over the long haul I've averaged 200-250 visits per day. But I do this for myself, primarily.
But what's interesting is that the more I blog on evolutionary diet and fitness, the more visits and links, which in turn brings more visitors. I'm now more lopsided in the blogs I visit. Politics wise, I probably only go to three or four, tops. But I'm going to a lot of paleo or evolutionary diet and fitness blogs, and you know what? I find most of these blogs and their comments far more honest and rational that any political blogs anywhere — including libertarian (especially libertarian, I have to wonder). So I've changed the 'About' description somewhat, as well as the categories. Food, diet, and exercise from an evolutionary perspective — hence honest reality — shall now hold a place at least as important, if not more so than the political stuff.
And man am I glad. I get in my political moods, and that'll happen again, but I have to say that I just can't help myself. My life has been changed dramatically in the last 9 months; I enjoy thinking, writing about it, and seeing my own results. And the more I do — and yea, maybe it's whistling past the graveyard — the more all the politics and "analysis" seem senseless and irrelevant. I know they're not, that ideas have implications, but at a point I have a life to live.
Anyway, I promised a photo. I have two. Here was my break-fast birthday dinner Tuesday night at Original Joe's here in San Jose. That was a 27 oz rib steak. All that was left was the bone and a bit of gristle. There was a lot of very tasty and satisfying fat. Three hours on the countdown to the next fasting period.
