What the fuck am I doing with a blog?
For years I’ve refused to have any kind of diary that would record my thoughts or ramblings, even though I grew up along with the wonder that is the computer and the internet to make things easier. I’ve had LJ and other similar websites accounts and commented in God knows where, but never kept something for myself. For one, my verbosity doesn’t exactly reach extraordinary levels to either satisfy me with the way I express my opinions or lay the exact idea I think of; it never has. I’m a simple person in several things and one of those is communicating, as much as it pains me. I also find that a lot of websites already express what I wanted to say with a clarity I would’ve never hoped to achieve, so trying to babble mindlessly in a post feels moronic. Don’t expect anything new from me either; a lot of blogs cover news at the speed of lightning and I will never try to update like that.

Another is laziness. Blogging or anything that needs regular maintenance ends up feeling like a chore, one that I tried to keep -unsuccessfully- first in the all traditional diary and later in livejournal with meager results. Not to mention I’m not good at programming, so making the site all customized as I’d want is even more mind-boggling than I expect (yes, I’m quite illiterate with computers).
Siesta under the warm sun. The best.
Lastly but I’d believe most important is anonymity. I love a quiet, simple life. Blogging probably will, have no doubt about it, end up mixed with some too personal or weird shit going on either online or IRL that’ll screw me up somehow. Not that anything exciting ever happens, but I rather stay on the safe side, since I’m my own worst enemy.
Yotsuba knows how to enjoy a simple, fun life.
Nevertheless, why start one now?
My decision came after much pondering and a not-quite-recent event. With online perusing you make acquaintances (obviously), and I enjoy going to their personal blogs; I get to know a bit more of these people on the other side of my pc. I gotta admit, it’s DAMN FUN. It’s damn fun and it feels nice to find out more about people you regularly interact with (and how awesome they can be), so if I can give back a little bit of that fun, the better
I could also add that it’s pretty trendy, and I tend to get carried away with them. I visit a bunch regularly and it’s been rubbing on me, so that’s also one thing; why start something out of popularity? hopefully blogging will become a dear part of my life and not die down with the trend.
So what are the consequences of blogging? not much if you’re careful (and not clear from the whole post, as I was afraid of). I’m not sure if I’ll be able to keep up and I hope this doesn’t bite me back in the ass in some distant future. Please enjoy.
Oh Kyon, I find you so moe in either gender (posted just because).
Oh Yeah and you’re probably gonna see a lot of this too, among other things:
If you know what he’s talking about, you’ve lost.
You know what to expect.
