Why… I was sitting here minding my own business, trying to figure out what I should post about next in line, when suddenly the thought ocurred to me, loud, crystalline and rampant:
What’s with the constant need to post about something? I mean, would it be so wrong to just go on in endless rants about nothing at all? Would that leave the visitors curious, confused, side-tracked or merely annoyed? Is that even important, in the grand scheme of things?
I’ve been doing this blogging thing for over a year now, I’m fast-headed towards the 1000th post landmark, and still I’m thinking in the box! I’m thinking boxes upon boxes of how it should be and how everybody is doing it and how I should do my best effort to ascribe to what people expect.
Well, what I’ve just realized is that… what people expect is to be surprised! That’s what makes most of us to go on endless click-trough crusades in those long drawn evenings… I mean is there something to that but the desire, the actual need to get surprised?
You know, right now I feel strangely compelled to write how I’m sorry that it took me so long to engage this realization on a conscious level, dearest readers… but all the while I’m grateful that nothing is lost, not while the “publish” button is still working and upon reach. Well, I just felt like making an interim post about nothing at all – just like in the good old days of what blogging is supposed to be all about. You. Me. Something. Or just nothing at all? Who cares? Just as long as enjoyment is getting had. We’re in for a ride, so brace yourself… and mark my words.
