This blog used to be titled “Secret Garden” in honour of the song by Japanese artist Gackt, which was a song that I really liked when I first created this blog many years ago. However, as I’m nearing my 400th post, I thought it was time that I finally updated things a little bit, and replaced what was actually quite an irrelevant blog name with another, possibly more irrelevant blog name: “Pistachio conspiracy #63”. At least it ties in with the web address and, if nothing else, they’re just random words and numbers that I like.
By now you might be getting a slight feeling that this blog primarily comprises a lot of nonsensical ramblings about arbitrary topics. Well, yeah, that’s basically it (it’s clearly spelt out in the tagline). More recently, however, I find myself gravitating toward writing about books, food, and random observations and ponderings.
I’ve been posting at least once a week since January 2011, and hope to keep doing so for as long as possible. (Here “a week” means Monday to Sunday. This means that there may be more than a week between posts e.g. if I post on Monday of one week, and then wait until the Sunday of the following week to post again.) Unfortunately, I rarely include photos/pictures with posts, but most photos I share publicly will appear on my Twitter feed in the side bar, so I thought that was an ok compromise.
As with most bloggers (from what I gather, anyway), I do love receiving comments on my posts – even if they’re something along the lines of “wow, I completely disagree” (please at least exlain why) – but I write mostly for my own enjoyment, so feel free to just browse and look around (it still registers as “page views” anyway).

I was going to update this page, but I realised that not much has changed. The only real change is that the Twitter feed in the sidebar has been replaced with an Instagram feed.
Other than that, it’s still just random posts every week.

Well, time has passed and things have changed. I no longer post every week, but every few weeks. Blogging is not something I’m thinking of stepping away from completely, but I just wanted a more relaxed blogging schedule with less commitment.
