Rhetoric

When you think of “rhetoric”, do you think of…

using language effectively to please or persuade

or

loud and confused and empty talk

When I originally went with rhetoric in the blog name years ago, I was thinking with the latter to fall in with the already loud ones.

Somewhere along the journey, I switched to wanting what I wrote to have meaning and help someone along the way. Part of why I don’t blog much is avoiding being a gas bag. The posts ought to mean something.

Maybe its not so bad to get the idea out there and let someone else provide the meaning?
