“Lieven le Bruyn’s NEVERENDINGBOOKS isn’t really a blog at all…”
Vlorbik’s unintentional [smack in the face](http://vlorbik.wordpress.com/2009/02/05/kiss-joy-as-it-flies $ left me bewildered ever since.
There aren’t that many [mathematical blogs](http://www-irma.u-strasbg.fr/article817.html) around, and, sure enough, we all have a different temperament, and hence a distinct style. I have no definition of what a mathematical blog should (or should not) be.
All I can say is that I try to reconcile an introvert character with a very public medium, partly because I think it is important for mathematics to be www-visible, but mostly because I’ve enjoyed exploring web-possibilities ever since someone told me of the existence of a language called html.
I’m a [Bauhaus](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bauhaus)-fan and hence like minimal wordpress-themes such as [Equilibrium](http://madebyon.com/equilibrium-wordpress-theme $. Perhaps this confuses some.
For this reason I’ve reinstalled the old-theme as default, and leave the reader to decide in the sidebar. This may not make this a blog yet, but it sure looks more like one…
As a one-time attempt to fit into the vast scenery of link-post-blogs, let’s try to increase the google visibility of some family-related sites (sorry, no math-links beyond) :
– The economic crisis is hitting hard at small companies such as my [sister’s-in-law](http://www.tuinkultuurlava.be) offering gardening-services.
– My god-child Tine is away for six months on a scholarship to Austria and blogging at [Tine’s adventures in Graz](http://www.tinesavontuuringraz.blogspot.com $.
– My daughter Gitte (aka here as PD1) is an [artist](http://www.gittte.be).
– My father, who will turn 79 next week, runs one of the most [popular blogs on skynet.be](http://zonnehart2008.skynetblogs.be $.
