As someone whose own blog is all about connecting words and visual input, along with book reviews thrown in for good measure (or my own pleasure, to be precise), the decision to subscribe to Grant Snider’s “Incidental Comics” blog was a no brainer.
I was rewarded almost right away. There, in my inbox, was the perfect explanation of why I blog. Actually, an explanation of why I need to blog! In a strip called “Cogito Ergo Sum”, the last four panels sum it up beautifully ( I can’t embed it here, click on the title to see the complete original, in context with the drawings):
” I think, therefore I read.
I read, therefore I rethink.
I rethink, therefore I write.
I write, therefore I am.”
By Grant Snider
Is that why you blog?
P.S Did you notice the word “dental” hiding in the word “incidental”? Snider is an orthodontist, there could be a connection…
P.P.S – Looks like there is a lot of useful material for class, too.
