Two Faced.

Opinionated Man:

I liked this post. It kind of shows the evolution of blogging and how a perfectionist writer can slowly grow into blogging and learn that not everything has to be perfect. Great post! :) -OM

Okay, so I get it. I was quick to bash other bloggers about spelling and grammar before I tried blogging myself. I get it now. I now see the two faces to blogging (one being blogging, the other being reading).

On one hand, I understand how a few spelling errors can change a reader’s perception of the writer’s viability. I am the first to admit that I am a very judgmental reader. And, I’m sure you are, too.

On the other hand, the writing hand, I now understand that, like myself, most bloggers probably self-edit (aka they don’t pay someone whose job it is to edit for them.) And, sometimes, they are not very good at it. (One of my good friends from college had to fix a spelling error in my rant about bloggers misspelling! Ouch!) I also get that whether it’s 6 AM or 2 AM, when the bug hits, you have to write. With…

A quick re-hash of a lesson probably all of us encounter at some point within our internet lives. For me, the internet is still a blessing. Never in all my years of existence have I been able to access so much both important and irrelevant information. It comes in handy when I need to find scholarly and creditworthy information regarding various topics. I can even slam- dunk someone in a debate about the difference between perfume, musk and cologne. Yes, those are the kind of conversations I’ve had with some people.

Then, there’s the more seedy side of the internet which allows you to connect with buttheads the Universe would’ve otherwise been kind enough to not have you cross paths with- ever. Now, thanks to the flattening of the globe- it has allowed people who live under rocks to have an equal opportunity to spew the…

It ALL makes sense now!

I have been informed that I am privileged. That my posts show how privileged I am and that my blog is successful because of my privileged past. Obviously the blogger that wrote these things knows me so well. It ALL makes sense now! My life is complete. Thank you for your kind personal assessment of me and my past! You should be a psychologist.

This is the darkside of blogging. People can’t understand the simple fact that working “towards” a community in turn creates that community around you. It is simple logic and the process is fueled by something equally as simple – hard work. Instead people would rather label you and make excuses for themselves by crucifying you. Crucify away people it is an old routine by now around here.

It is my goal to not link back to people that hate me  and my blog anymore. I must accept the fact that there will always be bloggers that dislike me. I have better things to do with my energy.

That ironic, sarcastic tone is so hard to accomplish just right. Not too much where you want to punch the writer in the face and say “dude shut the fuck up,” but just enough that it hooks you with a twisted smile. I chase that period.
