“Forty-two,” said Deep Thought, with infinite majesty and calm.
The number 42 has entered the popular imagination since the release of Douglas Adams' book. I don't know the ultimate question. I have asked myself on many occasion, "Why blog?" Most recently, while taking the 31 Days to Build a Better Blog course from Problogger. One of the first assignments is writing a post answering that question. It probably isn't the ultimate question, but I decided to use the number 42 to answer it anyway. Here are 42 answers I came up with to the question, in no particular order, as far as I know.
This is only the start. Go beyond the number 42 by subscribing to Readinary. Get my latest posts, techniques, thoughts, and offers. Grab a towel. "Don't panic." - Douglas Adams.
