In reply to: A Road to Common Lisp / Steve Losh

I weirdly adore Steve Losh’s blog. I don’t know what it is about it, but the way in which Steve talks about technical things is really lucid and…human? As in, readable, maybe? I don’t know, but I find myself referring to his blog again and again. I first stumbled across his blog when I found his post about how to configure and use Mutt a few years ago. Here, he has done it again with an excellent LISP primer.

TFW your partner asks you to set up a blog for them 😍

I had a personal realization recently: kottke.org isn’t so much a thing I’m making but a process I’m going through. A journey. A journey towards knowledge, discovery, empathy, connection, and a better way of seeing the world. Along the way, I’ve found myself and all of you. I feel so so so lucky to have had this opportunity.

Over the last week I’ve received 3 emails from folks asking me if I have any interest in posting sponsored content for them. I don’t have much interest in doing this, but I’m curious a) how they found my blog, b) why they think my posting content for them is worth their while (I don’t use analytics, but judging by server traffic, I can’t have more than a couple hundred visitors a week, at most) beyond potentially boosting search visibility, and c) is this really a job!?
