I blog because I like to write. It’s an outlet, mental exercise, and fun, especially when there are conversations to be had.
I’ve heard people snidely (whiplash) imply that blogging is just a way for attention whores to satisfy their egos and clog the internet with the unimportant ramblings of nobodies.
I say, write! Dance, sing, tell stories, write poetry, make music. Express yourself anyway you can. There’s nothing more important than the unimportant ramblings of us nobodies. Some of it sucks, yes. Some of it is offensive. Some of it is dreck. Some of it, I wish we could erase from all time and space.
But in the end, we are our stories.
In the past year+ I’ve written a lot about trying to get fit. I joined a small but always growing independent gym, Underground Athlete, and have had amazing results so far. (This is not an ad and there’s no sponsoring going on. It is a strong personal first-hand recommendation and unsolicited endorsement, though.)
I’m still a work in progress. Trying to get and be fit is apparently a lifestyle judging by how much I think about it and therefore write about it. Weight is a sensitive topic for a lot of people. I am aware. I never intend to offend you but I may accidentally.
I still write about other random things: current events, fictional short stories, you name it. Judging from my stats, the world relates to a fitness journey more so than some random dude’s opinion about what’s happening in the world. I can dig it.
Anyway, enjoy. Comment. Start a conversation. Make a topic request. Or just read and think about it.
