This is the first of the posts where I share little bites of my reality with you, dear reader. Enjoy.
I’m not much of an online sharer. I share only the things I want others to know, or think I want them to know. My true reality has always been fairly off-limits. That’s the way it’s going to stay for the most part.
A confession: I don’t actually read that many people’s blogs. It’s often the writing, or the subject matter, but unless they’re ridiculously engaging and/or amusing, I get bored of it so quickly. That’s probably just me, and to be honest I highly doubt anyone will find this blog of any real interest or value, so I’m nailing my colours firmly to the mast here. Most blogs are dull as fuck.
And yet, for those of you who care to stick around – I hope you enjoy being here. I swear a fair bit, and undoubtedly will piss a few people off along the way. However, you won’t find me spouting out Instagramtastic lines of bullshit about things you know I don’t believe in. That’s just not me.
People have told me to start my own blog for ages. That’s the only reason I’m gonna give it a whirl. It’s not a vanity project for me, fuck knows I literally don’t have the time – my reality is crammed with to-do lists and piles of never-ending crap that I never get on top of – but I’m interested to see if/how this blogging thing can actually work in terms of a real life person’s story.
I’ve never blogged in a personal capacity before. Everything I put out there is a carefully-thought out and well constructed piece with purpose. Well, aside from my personal Twitter feed and Instagram stories, they’re weapons-grade lunacy most of the time.
Anyway, on a mission to try and make blogs interesting again, here’s my own personal brand of chat. Let’s see how it goes.
