Highlighted About by Eric RasmusenEric Rasmusen (Eric Rasmusen's Weblog)

This weblog is mainly for myself, used as a commonplace book in which I put ideas, quotations, facts, and citations that I might want to use later. That’s why the topics are diverse and often esoteric. I’m not trying to build an audence or get a lot of hits on a counter. My impression is that most visitors arrive because search engines have led them to here and I’m one of the few websites in the world that address some key word they’re interested in.

Since I am not writing for other people, especially (you will see the exceptions‚ÄĒthings such as posts I also use as comments on other blogs, excerpts from letters or articles I have written or will write, and so forth), please do not think I am deliberately trying to offend someone or that I am cleverly pushing a hidden agenda. I‚Äôm not, simply because I don‚Äôt expect enough people to read this blog for such efforts to be worthwhile. Actually, I probably shouldn‚Äôt even fix my typos, and perhaps I‚Äôll stop doing that. You‚Äôre weclome to read, and I‚Äôll try to write well simply to avoid getting into bad habits, but I‚Äôll not expend more effort than if I were writing this into a hidden fil in my PC.

An excellent statement on an About page in which someone explicitly states that they use their site as a commonplace book and do so primarily for themselves.
