So I had another blog for a couple of years. I can’t even remember where it was and when I changed to my new iMac last year I didn’t even back half the stuff I had and I lost it forever. But it is out there somewhere and I’m sure somebody is reading it and laughing at how ridiculous some of the things I said are.
Blogging has always been away to reflect upon my personal life, how I keep fit, to set goals, to keep me lean and fit and keen, to hold me to account, to allow me to vent and express my opinion to the world.
But the truth is, that really and honestly we are screaming into a void. I mean, how many people actually going to read this piece? One, 20, 100? It doesn’t really matter. The truth is that the audience is so small that if you are setting out to do anything other than talk into the abyss then you are wasting your time and would be better off doing something that will make you money.
At one point I decided I wanted to be a full-time blogger. My grammar and spelling are not great, but I thought what the hell, a lot of bloggers can’t write for toffee. Thankfully, Texas was a brief chapter in my life and afterwards I moved to New Jersey, and I moved into doing a job that I love. But I still spend time working from home and I do enjoy the technology, especially my iMac, even with a broken screen. So blogging has come back into my life.
At the end of the day, I don’t believe that blogging really helps anybody, it’s just a way for us to feel like we are changing ourselves and the world, well it might be a way of getting things out there and for chest, but the truth is what good is it really do. I’m not sure really does any good at all, and I’m pretty sure that if we added up all the hours people are spent meaningfully blogging, we would have enough hours to change the world for the better.
But people are people and they prefer to do silly things like I’m doing right now, which is typing into the abyss.
