I started blogging because I was so inspired by all these great blog artists (it's a profession you know). But alas, I am not someone who would ever think to say "ooey-gooey" blabbity blah. Or have these cute anecdote-al stories or even really interesting ones that don't relate at all. Why? Well partly because I stay home reading blogs all day, but also because through unfortunate circumstances I became a cynical people hater. Now, for some reason whenever I am totally and completely serious and say something even remotely ugly, the people around me laugh. I try telling them I am dead serious and this seems to make it funnier. I don't know what's wrong with them. I don't get it, but hey however you need to deal with it. Because of this I seem to have a small handful of friends who just laugh at my people hating antics. The sucky part is none of them live nearby and I want to be friends with the bubbly, happy people full of ooey-gooey goodness. But happy attracts happy and insult-y attracts... craz-y? I do have to say that I have been meeting my own little circle of awesome people lately. If you are reading, you're included Marlene. If not...awk-ward : |
Another thing that I struggle with is being myself and being PG-13. I actually curse like a sailor, like dirty and strongly race related jokes and make fun of people to my loved ones, but never where the subject could hear and get his or her feelings hurt. I'm not that heartless. So, my dilemma is...do I go 100% real OR edit myself a little to be appealing to a broader audience of people. Like I would probably turn off a lot of devout Christian readers, certain racial groups, and people who are easily offended but then I'm like, they don't have to read this! I just don't ooze ooey-gooey goodness (I learned on American Dad that referencing something 3 times makes it funny or something like that). I also started another blog where I was going to "be myself", but I want to change the focus of this blog a little to reflect my life more. Let's not dwell on the fact that I barely get any posts up anymore. I read somewhere if you don't bring it up, neither will your
fans readers. I officially registered my business under a different DBA so this blog can be a lot more personal. I would ask my blog idols, but they are busy being fantastic and humorous on their own blogs. So what do you think? No blog post is complete without awesome pics, but I don't have any of those so these will have to do.
