Admittedly, a great question, though no one asked it of me, I asked it of myself. The long and short of it is, I’m blogging for me. This isn’t the first journal I’ve had, I’ve kept online journals and blogs on different platforms for many years. LiveJournal, DeadJournal, Blogger and some other places that no longer exist, for one reason or another. Too, I have a presence on social media, but I don’t link to them, because I’m not in this for clicks, for follows (though I’m happy to see people have found me on the highways and byways of the blogosphere and I welcome anyone that can put up with my long-windedness and weirdness) or for collecting thousands of nameless, faceless people who are reading, or collecting blogs to be a part of. I’m pretty much just talking about my life, my journey through my job, what I do for fun and so on. I try to be humorous at times, I’m going to be examining my belly-button lint from time to time, and expressing myself as best that I can. I’d most definitely admit I’m not perfect, and if you read me long enough, you’ll most assuredly see that’s the case. I certainly welcome comments, ideas, criticism, but flames or insults will get you shuttled off to purgatory. This isn’t the time or place for that sort of stuff. Just a fair warning from the start, thankyouverymuch.
At the bottom of the page, in case you hadn’t noticed before, there’s a link to my other blog, which isn’t updated as much as this one, but I’m planning over time to be writing more there, as I will have something to say and experience, and be able to journal about. In actuality, this blog is the red-headed step child as it were, it was started as an afterthought last year and not really attended to. I was trying to use the other blog as a ‘catch-all’ and I discovered that it wasn’t really working out very well in that regard. I really needed two blogs, one for average ‘every-day’ sorts of things, and that one that covers the more specific gamut of what I do with some of my free time. It’s not necessarily for the faint of heart, but if you’re the adventurous sort, it might tickle your fancy. Then again, it might not.
So basically, without going into too much detail, that’s the reason for this tome. FWIW.
