I haven’t been posting much here lately. It’s not that I don’t have anything to say. I just don’t have anything to say that anyone wants to hear.
The internet for me has turned into the same thing everything else in the world has turned into: a place where you better look good and feel good all the time, or no one wants to be around you.
So if I want to stay in the game, I need to buy a much better camera and learn how to use it.
I need to learn how to optimize content to get search engine attention and cater to the whims of the public.
I need to be available to all of you at all times to create relationships.
I need to partner with companies that will pay a pittance for advertising on my site, a pittance that barely covers the cost of maintaining my site.
I need to post product reviews that make the item sound like it’s the best thing since sliced cheese.
The problem is, I don’t want to do any of that.
All I wanted to do was find a place where, for once, just being plain ole’ me was good enough. And that’s not even true here online anymore. I need to be splashy, catchy, and kitschy.
As anyone who knows me can tell you, I am not a positive person. I am a person who sees things the way they are, and not the way I want them to be. Positive people have their place in the world, but so do realists such as myself.
I just need to figure out where that place is.
