I have been trying to decide what to do with this blog. I was going to write stories about different parts of my life and post them here. As you can see from the previous posts, that was something I did take seriously for a while. But I lost interest and motivation to do that. It is something that maybe later I will take up again.
So in a way I was wondering what I could do on this blog. I tossing back and forth between things. I just couldn’t make up my mind about anything let alone do anything. That is until yesterday when something happen that did make up my mind.
I was part of a promotional video. To be honest, it wasn’t something I would do at first, but I was “tricked” into doing it. When they called me up about it, they said I would just come into the office and answer some questions about my job and that would be it. It ended up being a whole day of filming and answering questions about my job before the cameras.
In some ways, tricking me worked in my favor. Not knowing what was going to happen, I didn’t have the fears build up inside me about what I was going to do. When it came time to answer those questions on camera, I found that I was good at ad-lib. That my answers seem more honest and to the point than if I had time to think of my answers by giving the questions to me beforehand.
I though why not do the same in this blog. When something comes up in my mind to write about then write a post on the blog. Don’t worry about sticking to a plan and do a story or post. Just write whatever comes to mind as I write to the post. If it is crap and nobody likes it then it doesn’t matter to me. It is not like I am trying to get a following or engage people here, just expressing myself.
So that is what I will do for the time being. Just write and post it. May not make much sense and then again it might. May just seem that way to me because I am not following an outline, making a point or revising it in any way. But there are other things I will keep as part of this blog:
- No advertisements. I am not trying to make money with this blog
- No tracking: I don’t care if anyone visits this blog or what they read here.
- No notifications: The feeds are disabled along with any other way of notifying a person that I posted something here. So if you want to see if I posted or read something, you will just have to drop by and find out for yourself.
- No comments: Not that I don’t care about what people have to say in regards to my posting, just that I get tired of cleaning up the spam and other junk that is posted in the comments section. I know there are anti-spam solutions out there, but I like to keep this blog simple and not have another layer of code on it just to scan comments and see if they are spam. Maybe at some point I will put up an email address that if you want to contact me and comment about what I post then you can do it that way. Not that hard to hit the delete key in the email client when spam does come.
