The Blog of Important Things

The December 7th entry in Chesterton Day by Day (1912) is from "The Club of Queer Trades":
We had talked for about half an hour about politics and God; for men always talk about the most important things to total strangers. It is because in the total stranger we perceive man himself; the image of God is not disguised by resemblances to an uncle or doubts of the wisdom of a moustache.
This sounds a bit like blogging, does it not?

Yes sound like blogging. In fact after reading that I decided to use that text as my blog description although I'm having trouble with the HTML.
