Should I Stay or Should I Go?

So, it’s been a while. Surprisingly, I didn’t even have to look up my password. At any rate, the questions of the day are:

a) To blog or not to blog?

b) If to blog, to blog here or start anew?

c) Also, what should we blog about?

By we, of course, I mean me, unless we have guest bloggers, but that gets complicated and who wants that? Plus, you don’t come here to read John Doe’s posts about whatever; you come here to read my posts about whatever. Well, actually, people mostly come here through Google Images to steal photos from my site and use them on their own without permission in a blatant infringement of copyright.

And, yes, I waffle a lot in terms of whether or not to keep this blog going. The key factor is, of course, no one cares.

Seriously, no one cares.

You have to make people care.

You have to make them want to visit.

You have to make them want to come back.

You have to make them want to care.

Then you take their money and buy yourself a private island somewhere and tell them to buzz off.

That’s the cycle of life.

Sometimes, of course, I like to imagine I used to have good content on here. And, yes, I did. There’s probably a lot more nonsense though. The one thing I’ve learned is that when you try to post daily, when you try to give something for people to come here to read each and every day, eventually you go quite mad. And then you start posting pictures of dancing monkeys. And not just a single picture. Oh, no. You do that every day for about a month. A full month of dancing monkeys.

Then you try to get back on course. You try to get back to posting stuff of real substance. And you might succeed for a while, but then you cave and put up a bunch of red lines and call it a post.

Then you reach the point where it seems futile, so you throw in the towel and decide to shut the whole thing down.

Then you change your mind and try something completely different until, of course, you change your mind again. Then there is a long period of silence after which you try again. And then you give up after a couple weeks when you start posting stuff like 50 shades of bunnies. And you follow that up with intermittent nonsense.

And, so, here we are. Hello! What up?

Sneaky trick . . . By being the first to comment, it’ll look like people are already commenting! Sneaky!

Except for the fact that no names will appear in the Top Commenters section of the sidebar. Curses! Foiled again!

Then again, who even looks at the sidebar?

I could make it look like there’s a lively conversation going on here!

And now I feel ashamed for the deception.

But not as ashamed as I would be were these comments to number in the double digits.

Which they don’t since this one is only #7, three short of ten, which is a two digit number.

Unless you’re counting in base-16, in which case it would be A.

But this blog counts comments in base-10, so I have to stop here so as not to feel too much shame.
