Question: What do you do?
Jason Kottke: II look at lots of things online all day and try and figure out how to explain them to other people – these things that I find.
I’ve always liked to learn. It’s a continual sort of learning, discovering – just finding out about stuff I didn’t know about. You know I can’t think of much better ways to spend my time, I guess.
It takes a lot out of you. You know you go on vacation, and you go to a beach and that’s really relaxing. And your mind is not engaged, and it’s very relaxing. And there’s other vacations where you go to a big city and you’re constantly going to museums, and openings, and restaurants, and you’re engaged very intensely. And I feel like the blogging for me is that intense engagement. And so you know doing that pretty much full time, day after day, it wears you down. It can wear you down.
