On not "Blogging"

When I was "prolific" here, I used to also religiously read other blogs, comment, be awed, and basically spend a lot of time online just reading and finding ideas to mull over in my own space.

Since 2013, however, that hasn't been the case. It's become harder and harder to get online and write. It isn't because I don't want to.

The internet is as much a productive and wonderful space as it is a place full of the most heinous humans ever. Hiding behind their phone or computer screens are people who wouldn't dare confront you IRL. And it is my utter loathing for that variety of internet asshole that stops me from writing.

Let's be clear, I've fielded comments from that variety of idiot before. I don't want to do it any more. It's annoying. I'm better off not making a point and having actual discussions with people I can see face-to-face. It's come to that.

There is also this teeny and tiresome job of promoting the post, sharing it and telling people that I have written something, please read. Nope. Not for me. I can't do it.

So, if you've come here after a while, wondering where I've been and so on, I'm sorry but this blog is mostly a relic. A remnant of a time when I documented everything I ever wanted to say. Right now, I'm loving being quiet.
