So, um, yeah — I haven’t been blogging lately. I guess I just don’t feel this overwhelming urge to blog like I thought I would. Don’t get me wrong — I love the technology — setting up the MT application, the MySQL integration, etc. etc. I also love to read blogs, I think I’ve got subscriptions to 50+ RSS feeds in my FeedDemon subscriptions, and I manage to stay on top of them pretty well.
But everytime I think, “Hey, I’ll blog this!” It’s immediately followed up by “But who the hell will care?” Some friends of mine don’t seem to have this problem, and while they will put up some inane shite, many times it’s actually a real pleasure to read their thoughts.
Most of the stuff I think I’ll blog tends to be in the political arena, and I’ll be damned if I’m not getting sick and tired of thinking about politics all the time. Of course, since I’m addicted to political news, it doesn’t mean I quit consuming that particular flavor of content.
Of course, this begs the question, why am I addicted to political news? For a long time, I felt like knowledge was power, but given the vast amount of reality arrayed against what the gang of thugs known as the Republican Party are saying, I’m not so sure this is true anymore. I think I’ve just grown so accustomed to trying to digest and understand every bit of information that comes out about the way our country is being governed, that even though I want to stop, I just can’t. It’s a freaking habit, pure and simple.
I suppose I’d like to start blogging about other things, but again this begs the question: what’s the freaking point? Who even reads this stuff?
