Social Media & Fear


Social media is a growing beast. It grows every day and because of that the “dangers” also grow in number. What are you afraid of when it comes to social media?

I am lucky. I have an occupation that doesn’t care about my social media presence, I have a wife that encourages me, and I have a free tongue and even freer fingers. I write through my fear and I live for those moments when my spine begins to tingle and my skin crawls just a little bit. That is when I know it is real. That is when blogging matters the most to me.

Everyone is seven feet tall on social media. Everyone also has huge nuts and a giant dick. That includes the women actually. You will find as you grow on social media so will your experiences and not all of them will be good. You will run into people that hate your opinions, hate that people agree with your opinions, hate that you freely type your views, hate that you have views, hate you, and hate your people too. It has all happened to me and will probably happen eventually to you. Does that cause you fear?

Humans tend to be passive creatures so when one comes along and upsets the pond the water ripples. It doesn’t stop rippling till either the human realizes they aren’t a fucking duck or other ducks come along and beat that human into submission. It is a sad day when a man gets smacked down by a group of ducks, but it happens every day. And every day another blogger is silenced by the masses that do not appreciate your freedom. Because they do not have it themselves.

Who owns your fear? I don’t allow anyone to intimidate me online. One day that may come to a head, but for now it is the attitude I have. That I must have to be me. Sometimes bloggers will try to silence your voice for no other reason than to show they can. Who will you allow to silence you? Who will own your fear.

Disabling comments is Weak


I don’t understand bloggers that write highly charged articles and then disable the comments section. Are you that weak in the backbone that you won’t allow anyone to make a comment that might not agree with you? How sad must your world be where you only wish to spout your views and not allow anyone to disagree. I am as stubborn as they come and don’t “change my views” just because people or society tells me to, but I still allow people to call me an idiot in my comment section. It doesn’t faze me because I hold onto my beliefs. I need no help from moderation to do that.

If you feel so scared that you need to disable your comment section you should probably stop writing on social media. In fact I would suggest buying a notebook instead. You are obviously not cut out for this.

Yes, this rant is because I tried to comment on someone’s article and there was no option to. So freaking lame. And YES I do read blog posts daily…

I love it…


Bring your anger and your conviction. Pile it high and set it on fire as you dance in ritual homage to your beliefs. Look up fool and take note of the bonfires around you. Your candle of reverence is joined by a billion other lights and the most amusing part is that no one else gives a damn about your flame but you.

Shout in my face and cause your veins to bulge. Portray for me your feelings in aggressive fashion and inspire me to respond in turn.

You have passion? I can match it.

You have facts? I have my own.

You feel your cause is just? I in turn feel you are wrong.
