It's been a year since I started blogging. Well, November 5th has been a year since I put up my first post, but since I completely forgot to check the exact date, I'm a bit late with the celebration post.
Ever since I heard about the concept of blogging, I wanted to start a blog of my very own. The problem was, I had nothing at all to write about, so I didn't start a blog. I did however check out other blogs (mostly frumsatire ). I also checked out blogger, and filled out a bunch of stuff to start the blog, but I kept the account closed.
A few years later, I was sitting bored in front of a computer at the Brooklyn College Library (I had a 3 hour gap between classes) and I started reading the news, then I flipped out, and well...I wrote a post, opened up my blogger, and posted it!! I had no readers. I had no idea what I should name the blog or anything, so at first I just called it "Just Ranting", which I knew was really lame, but I figured it was ok for the time being.
Later, that day at one of my philosophy classes I decided "Hey, I like writing about this stuff, I love my major, why not make a blog about how I'm skeptical of frum people's ways, and compare some of their ideas and philosophy with the type of things I'm learning about in class?"
And so I decided on the name One Frum Skeptic.
I tried very hard to write about philosophical issues ALL the time. It didn't work out at all. Even from the beginning I was mostly ranting. Definitely not as much as now, but still.
Basically, I wanted more posts like Judaism and Existentialism and the Game of Life.
I also wanted to have alot of cute/funny posts such as If I rule the world and What if they genetically engineered a pig ?
Well...this blog has a life of its own, or should I say my brain has a little part of it dedicated solely to my blogging, and it has developed my being a crazy and outrageous ranter?
I'm all ok with that. Blowing off some steam here is good for me, and well, you readers seem to like it. :)
And well...Happy anniversary to my blog! YAY :)
and Thank you all for reading. I do love the comments. :)
