Eleemosynary

2004-12-13

I don't like it when bloggers ask for money -- even when they're bloggers I like. If you can't afford to blog, don't do so. There's something pitiful about the self-perception of those who think of themselves as charity cases who must beg in order to blog. Better, methinks, for one's blogging activity to "emerge from what is healthy, from overflowing well being, from living existence to the full" (Nietzsche, The Birth of Tragedy, Attempt at a Self-Criticism).
