I’ve been thinking about why I write this blog, if it’s interesting, what sort of things I should be writing about, and other things like that.
I suppose I write it for the same reasons I used to write a diary – it’s quite a nice thing to do, to help you think things through, and it’s nice to be able to look back on it later. I suppose if any other people find it vaguely interesting or amusing, that’s a bonus that you don’t get with a paper diary.
The second question is more complicated. Is it interesting? Hmmm, sort of. Sometimes. I think some of things I’ve written giving my opinion on things, or talking about something funny that’s happened, are sort of interesting. General narrative about “I did this, then that happened” is a bit dull though, and I must try to avoid it.
As to what to write about, that’s also more tricky. I don’t know if people like some of the posts I’ve written more than others. Things I could write about are:
- my daily life, the wedding, work, that kind of stuff
- current events, occasionally I put stuff on here about politics or interesting things I’ve read in the Economist. Not that often though, I could do more
- interesting pictures, videos, websites and stuff that I find
- more personal sort of stuff, like boys, boys I like, sexual adventures (when I have them), lack of sexual adventures (more likely)…
Any comments (from the vague few who read this) would be appreciated. I’ve been reading about what makes a good blog, and lots of places say “write about what interests you, write what you think, keep it short and accessible”. So I suppose that’s a good place to start.
It’s also a bit tricky when yes I could write about my thoughts about people I know, people I like, people I hate, but they might actually READ this themselves. Especially because I link this to my Facebook, so all my friends could potentially read it. Do I just throw caution to the wind and write it anyway? Would people get upset? Would I have to anonymise it somehow?? Ah so many things to think about…
Thoughts anyone? Shall we just got for red hot gossip and sexual perversion?? I know that’s what you’re all dying for…
