Five Years of HarsH ReaLiTy

 

 

Well I guess it is that time again. I’m going to renew the site one more time and see where we go from there.

I just can’t bring myself to let https://aopinionatedman.com/ go and it become some online pine cone store. For the guy in the back that just thought… ‘what the fuck is an online pine cone store???’ Man… you just ain’t been living.

A blog is not a single post. A single post can get you famous of course… fame is such a loose term these days, but it can definitely accomplish that for normally the wrong reasons. A true blog paints a whole picture of what a blogger is or is becoming, or it should if a blogger is honest. Most bloggers aren’t.

I find it to be fun to own a website, in general, and call it your own. That’s what this blog is. Most people don’t think that is a big deal and that’s cool, they can have their opinion. Over there. The reason I still putter along over here is because a website never dies.

It only becomes an online pine cone store if you don’t pay the $150 to reup.

Let’s see what 2019 brings.

Blogging tip 104.5

I find people all the time because they want me to find them.

They tag their posts Harsh Reality or Opinionated Man, I see it and respond.

Tags are powerful tools if you use them right. I can’t respond to everyone, but I do try. Use the tools that WordPress provides for free to grow your blog and get your posts out there.

Own your blog tag or create a tag you “monopolize.”

Depression

I see and read the struggle everyday. Our struggles, through the posts, they become a canopy. A hanging remembrance of sadness felt. Overwhelming because it overshadows us, we cannot turn about.

Our path, a shared path, with memory stones. A stone for each soul that thought they were alone. We walk, a shared path, never knowing that we share the way. One way, one path, yet no one else feels this way we say.

I read about a fallen star today. Another star, someone else’s fall, but it feels the same. A stinging pain that stays like a stain. Look down, not up, we’ll be ok.

I deleted my site

All of my old posts that is. I’ll still keep aopinionatedman.com… it amuses me.

I feel like a website has to evolve with you and this website has changed a ton. Some might say too much…

I’ve gone through the evolutions of being a new eager blogger in 2013, an old blogger by 2014, and now a tired blogger by 2018.

There may come a day when I look back at what I’ve done with this blog and regret not doing more. But there are many stages in my life I can point to and say that to as well. I often reflect on such things and it is a bit pathetic really in this case… trying to create a historical moment from something still kicking. Very human of me I guess.

Al those old posts and opinions are gone. I am still the same though, but I suspect I’ll remain the same until I’m insane.

We’ll see.

10 Reasons Why I Use the Word “Fuck”

1. Things move faster when you yell the word “Fuck” at them. “Fucking move” works best obviously.

2. Because the word “motherfucker” has too many syllables in it and takes too long to say.

3. People have been telling me since the age of 6 not to use this word. Well fuck them!

4. The word “shit” lost its harshness years ago.

5. It still amazes me how a singular word can offend so many people just by its existence. I feel like all the Fucks in this world deserve my support now.

6. After I received my first farewell letter from a subscriber due to my language I knew I could never break up with the word Fuck ever again. Using it just makes my job easier.

7. I love words that have multiple uses.

8. I love this word when it is used as a verb.

9. I use the word “fuck” because it is part of my colloquial language and I won’t moderate my writing for anyone.

10. The last time I used the word “dammit” a pack of eager beavers appeared.

I am 34 years old. I don’t need your permission to use words. If you don’t like the words I choose to use read something else.
