There’s no question about it, blogging is included in one of the circles of hell.
Some blogs are greedy, some lustful, most definitely gluttonous, but overall, they fall into the first circle-- Purgatory. They are not books, not journals. They are a collection of words stuck in between literature and pretention in desperate need of an editor. Blogs are an addition to the noise. I have always considered writing a blog to be a minor, yet punishable, offense. And yet, here I am. Punish me. #lockherup #s&m?
Yeah, you’re right-- There are quality blogs out there, blogs that focus on a clear idea, contain solid content, focus on personal/relatable experiences, and fulfill a need within their subscribers. How cool and positive and inspiring! (No sarcasm, truly.) But what I shame, I will be doing none of those things!
I have no expectations for this, and you shouldn’t either. These are a bunch of stories I’ve had stuck in my head for years, and I need them out of me. This blog will not help your career, teach you anything new, or any of that cool shit real blogs do. I make no promises, only that I’m standing in my truth, and every word is from the warm part in my otherwise cold dead heart. I make no and all apologies. #Nirvana
And just so we're all clear, I am not cool.
