This Blog

This blog is just a place for me to record my thoughts. As such there will be periods of insightful commentary, periods of stupid quizzes, periods of moping and periods of link blasts etc. Once in a while I put effort into writing, mostly I just write what I think and feel. Expect randomness, moodiness and honesty; expect variation in quality; expect most of the posts to be crap.

I am not trying to be impress people or to write publication worthy words. I am not trying to convince anyone of anything. I am not trying to be popular and increase the number of visitors. If that was what I wanted then I'd write about sex.

Early on I had an internal debate about whether I should have standards and censor myself. I decided a) to screw the standards and b) to not write posts about certain topics.

I am writing for myself. If other people read and comment, cool. If not, also cool.

Unless you're getting paid for it, blogging (or writing at all for that matter (or doing pretty much anything at all for that matter)) should be for no other reason than your own entertainment, enjoyment, pleasure, or satisfaction.

Anyone that tries to tell you any different is full of it.
Lots of other people seem to treat their blog as a place where they present their thoughts and ideas in a lovely package (ie they tidy the house, polish the silverware, dress up and put on their best manners). A place to impress people and convince people. A popularity contest.

Maybe they are right, but I can't do that for very long.
"Right"? Nah. I certainly can't be bothered to do all that rubbish. I do it for me, which means I leave it messy and lived-in.
Hmmm...I think I like the messy lived-in blogs the best.

Although I suppose if I have a messy life I should probably keep the door shut :)
Just make sure you have a closet to shove all the stuff into that you don't want polite society to see.
Excellent advice. I have a closet now.
Most people do not know when is mother’s day? they get information about this day through social media like Facebook, twitter. Send Mother's day quotes 2017 to your mom. And show her how much you love her. While you can send Mother's day quotes, Mother's day wishes 2017 as well.
