This blog — and website — is intended to be a vehicle for self-publishing material related to things I’m interested. I generally post several times a week. Some of the topics I will (may) be posting include:
The name for this blog and web site comes from Interstate 40 exit 78 in Arkansas. For most of my time at my last job, I crossed the exit 78 overpass on my way to and from work. With no entrance or exit ramps on the east side of the exit, I used an access road rather than the interstate.
In the last few years, there has been quite a bit of road construction in the state including a reconstruction of exit 78 with a new overpass and entrance and exit ramps in both directions. The construction also resulted in a new spectacular view of the lake at the highest point of the exit. In the weeks prior to the creation of this web log, I had been trying to come up with an original name for it. I wanted a simple name that would be easy to remember. I didn’t want it to be something that was too corny or that would immediately place it in a category that isn’t intended.
*I’ve de-emphasized discussions of internet income on this blog. In my view there is way too much information – or disinformation — on this on the internet and I have little to add, so I won’t often include anything on this other than occasionally mentioning my own modest efforts..
I like to put stuff together on the web — blogs, photographs, public domain material that’s already online, just somewhat hard to get to, and more.
I don’t generally write about myself — because this blog isn’t about me; it’s about things I observe and things I enjoy and things that I enjoy sharing with others. If I’m going to be a serious blogger, though, it probably wouldn’t hurt if my readers were able to learn a little bit about me — if they so desire.
