CONVERSION NOTICE: This is one of 250+ blogs that originally appeared on MySpace. I’ve done my best to represent it with as much historical accuracy as possible, but there are limitations. Read about it in the FAQ.
Current Mood: sore
Well it’s hard to believe, but according to MySpace, this is my 250th blog. Holy shit. Can you believe that? Two hundred and fifty. Think about that for a second. Two hundred and fifty times over the last five years — basically once a week — I have sat down for an hour or so and written out some kind of emotional exhibitionism for you, the reader. In the past, I’ve questioned the wisdom of doing this. Questioned this dubious use of time. Again though, it has served me as the closest thing to a journal that I’ve ever had. And hopefully it’s been entertaining to you on occasion.
What I secretly want to know is: are there people out there that have been reading since the beginning? Possibly even someone who has read all 250? You don’t have to fess up. But to those silent types who read and rarely or never comment… there’s never been a better time to come clean.
I must confess that I’ve looked into moving future blogs off of MySpace. I love that people can access these so easily and comment and all. But I also know that MySpace seems to be losing steam, and then there’s always the chance that the MySpace powers that be could delete my blog or even my profile, and what would be my recourse? More and more, I’m considering continuing on a blog hosted on my own site, where I never have to worry about posting something that might piss the wrong people off. My virtual mouth has led to stuff getting yanked off here before, after all. But once I move off onto my own URL, it seems like I’d run the risk of falling off the radar of what few of you actually care to read what I put up here. And if I’m going to drift further into obscurity, then why keep it up at all? Not sure what to do…
Well, I celebrate my 250th with a massive headache. I managed to bonk my head on a garage door on Sunday, hardest I think I’ve ever hit it. I didn’t lose consciousness, but I’ve had a headache ever since. And not like a bump on my head, but like a full on headache. I don’t think I’m all that clumsy, but I have no one to blame but myself on that one. And in fact, I’m kinda feeling like laying down right now. Here’s hoping I’m back to “normal” tomorrow.
The quote of the week comes again from Taxi Driver Wisdom, and it sums up my week, my year, and my 250 blogs. Good night, kiddies.
