Rinich I was meant to have a blog of its own, but I never wrote a unique entry for it; all my writing wound up on a series of miniature blogs each named after a letter of the alphabet. The idea came from a passage of James Joyce's Ulysses where the protagonist berates himself for his idiocy and pretension: "Hurray for the Goddamned idiot! Hray! No-one saw: tell no-one. Books you were going to write with letters for titles. Have you read his F? O yes, but I prefer Q. Yes, but W is wonderful. O yes, W." After my last blog, I realized that I could only be comfortable with writing online if the designs of the sites it appeared on somehow explained to reader how I wanted my works to be read. Blogs whose communications extended beyond their writings. Like with Rinich I, I was proud of the designs but realized, once finished, that I'd never thought whether these were blogs I actually wanted to
write; the constraints said nothing about me, and I needed
a blog whose structure reflected the works within it. Hence
Rinich IV, where each entry's design was uniquely tailored. back to Rinich
