Today (or rather two days ago) marks the day that I’ve started to regret my presence online. Specifically with blogs. The first blog I ever made was on OpenDiary back in 2007 or so. The site was shut down in 2014 (then relaunched early this year, apparently?) so the actual “diary” is not there anymore. (Sidenote: back when OpenDiary was a thing it was known as a community of diary writers, which makes absolutely no sense to me. Diaries are meant to be private last I checked so why would anyone share their diaries? Whatever.)
The second blog that I ever made was on Blogger. It lasted for a while and I posted video game reviews. All of the posts were essentially Zero Punctuation knock-offs. I eventually deleted all of the posts and all that’s there now is just two posts. I might just delete it altogether now that I’m writing about it.
The third “blog” I have is a Tumblr. I say have and is but it’s literally just become….well nothing really. Meaningless noise that goes nowhere, speaks to no one, and doesn’t really do much beyond putting something into the extremely dense waters of the massive data stream of the internet.
This one, the one on WordPress, is probably the only one aside from Blogger that I had attempted to actually keep updated and going for an amount of time. Everytime I come back I always feel like I have to come up with an excuse for not writing on it for so long. Each time I come up with this dumb excuse-ridden post I’m always ashamed for writing it. Are all my posts going to be excuses of why I haven’t been writing posts for a while?May as well change the title of this blog to “What’s Your Excuse?” and make up lists of excuses of why I haven’t written.
Maybe I should do that for fun. Something for another day.
Anyways. In thinking about this blog I’ve been deciding on whether I should delete all my posts and start over. Maybe I should hide all my old posts instead? That way if I want to I can just unprivate them if I decide to show anyone? It’s possible to do it.
Eh, I’ll think about it.
For now though I’m gonna just write more posts throughout the summer. I hope to have clearer plan at some point in the future.
I’m gonna stop here, I’m getting hungry.
