I am often wondering if I should really share this blog or not. Sometimes I want to because I like to tell people what’s on my mind but then I think, maybe it’s better to not share because people can be assholes. Regardless, journaling is something that I have been doing since I was ten years old. Growing up without anyone to really talk to meant that my thoughts went into a journal and after that I had a choice to look back and remember something I may have forgotten or get it off my chest and forget it. Like so many things, the way we do almost everything is changing and when it comes to keeping a journal, well even that is different. On the one hand, journals are private but then again the reason for it was to say what I was thinking. In a journal, not everything I think needs a basis nor do they have to be well thought out, perfectly executed. It’s not a story line like a novel with a beginning, middle and end and at the end you can feel satisfied or completely ripped off.
Nope, I choose this style because I am random at best. I have never been the type of person who keeps all my thoughts in line. I jump from one thing to the next because I let my mind wonder free which is why I have never been successful at being a blogger.
I tried doing a gardening blog but there’s only so much I can write about that and keep up an ongoing blog. I just write when I feel like it. Say what I want to say and that’s that. I have way more interest than just gardening, reading, tv/movies, games, politics, religion, people, gossip and personal bitch fests.
I am a human being that it’s “optimized” to write solely on one thing. I have tried for a long time to just write about one thing and I just.can’t.do it and I don’t really care to go over every single thing that I write with a fine tooth comb just to make it appear perfect like I am some special brand of freelancer who is super skilled in the art of grammar and spelling. Doing those things really takes away from how much I enjoy just pounding away at the keys to begin with.
Oh, the other thing. I definitely like to type more than I like the pen. It’s faster and I can actually read the letters, I have terrible handwriting which was totally obvious going back to look through all my hand written journals, some going waaaay back to when I was ten.
So there it is in a nutshell. My niche’ is random, I don’t have one. I write about what I am thinking about and that’s really all I have to say about that.
