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).
