What does it all really mean?
I'm talking about the complaints and belittling that folks feel the need to heap on people who like to blog.
I enjoy blogging. I write about stuff that moves or affects me.
At times I tell stories about growing up, other times I reveal things about my past.
I rant and rave about work. I complain about behavior and actions that really tend to stomp on my last nerve.
Sometimes I make the posts personal. Other times, I leave them open and ambiguous.
Does it all really matter?
To all of you, maybe not.
To me? It means something.
Yeah, this blog is almost like a diary. However, I don't care who reads it. I don't feel the need to take it under lock and key, and force folks to read what I put down.
If you don't like or agree with what I have to say, then it's as simple as NOT reading for the problem to correct itself. I'm not forcing you to read this, I'm not creating an incident by writing what I feel. I'm just being ME.
There have been a couple of times where what I've written has actually touched someone. That's great. However, it's not really what this blog is about.
There are times when I've offended and upset folks. Again, this is unintentional. That's also NOT what this blog is about.
This blog is here as my sounding board for whatever mood takes me. If I'm feeling nostalgic, then I can write down about fond memories I had growing up. If I'm feeling pensive, I'll write something similar to this post, beacuse it gets me thinking. If I'm in a good mood, I'll write silly stuff. If I'm angry or annoyed, I'll write down arguments about actions or activities that have really set me off.
So no two posts are going to be the same. They change just as often as the wind.
My wish here isn't about gaining readers. Those of you who like what I read, great! Keep reading!
Those of you who don't like what I write.. What are you still doing around here? It's not going to change anytime soon.. Get a clue, and move on.
Maybe at some point I'll decide to let my creative bone take control, and I'll write narraratives that will stir some kind of response from people, and have folks clamoring for more.
For now? I'm content to write what I feel, call a spade a spade, and not concern myself over the technicalities of personal involvement.
So sayeth the author of this mediocre blog, and thus shall it be!
