Why?

eKarj is a collection of sassy hot takes, also known as an internet blog. It was launched in 2000 as an experiment to see how many times one person could abandon the same website. But I’ve always eventually returned to it and maybe I always will.

Historically eKarj has attracted a respectable audience, and I don’t mean a large audience—I mean an audience of fine, upstanding individuals, who have nevertheless been cruelly forsaken by its erratic lapses, some of which spanned multiple Presidential administrations. The current incarnation of eKarj is an attempt to reform past neglect by adhering to, at minimum, a weekly update cadence (or if this proves inconvenient, whenever I feel like it).

Elite cryptographers will observe that eKarj (formally eKarjala) is an abstraction of my name, Eric Karjala (formally Lil’ Choo Choo). I am a writer living in New York, NY.
