Blogging? What the hell is that?
My friend Jackie has a great tagline for her blog: "Remember when blogging was cool?" Jackie is someone who actually makes her blog a thing that it should be, which is to say "genuine." For me, this thing has been a dumping ground for all the stuff I'm working on. And as genuine as that stuff may be, I remember a time when I'd use blogging as a sort of diary. That was way more fun.
I've drifted in and out of this particular blog, mostly due to my uncertainty that I'm accomplishing anything here. (I post everything I'm legally able to post on my facebook accounts). But this particular lapse wasn't my fault, this time - the damn blog wouldn't work! I couldn't type, couldn't insert photobucket code, nothing! I tried fixing it at the time, to no avail. I then gave up, taking it as a sign from the gods that I'm not supposed to be blogging. Because I like to imagine that the gods' first and foremost responsibility is to reach down from the heavens and jack up my blog.
And now, for some strange reason, it's fixed itself! Bringing me back to my initial quandry: what the hell do I do with this thing?!
