I use blogging as a creative outlet to express my feelings, thoughts and opinions, as a way to illustrate my sense of humor at times… As a way to be heard in this crazy world. Blogging really has given me some voice. It has also given me some indication that some of the things I write, are attacked by other people in my life, because they think my Blogs are who I am. These confused souls feel persecuted by some of my articles, which, have NOTHING to do with them.
I’ve tried to explain, I write, I get paid very little to write but still get paid. Stephen King once stated in a book on writing, “if you get paid anything for writing, then you are a professional writer”. I have stated, jokingly, that I am a professional writer…This is based, of some off-color wisdom, by one of my favorite authors. I know that doesn’t make it fact. I also know I am not a professional writer…I am merely an amateur and proud of it. It takes balls to expose yourself and speak up for unpopular topics! It takes NO testicles to badmouth and hate because you don’t agree with the amateur author! Blog hecklers are people suffering from no ambition or balls, to start their own blog and stand by their own writing. Yes, I share conflicting views, to shoot for fairness, but I am not a professional blogger…I have only been blogging for a couple of months!
Blogging is a way, a means, for a person to make a tiny corner of the internet theirs, to express feelings, passions and items that are important to that person. It’s okay to disagree with what someone says, but instead of public humiliation, maybe just don’t read the blog if you don’t agree with it…Live and let live. You will never be successful in changing another human beings belief system…Don’t even try. If you are at odds with the person blogging, so much, it causes you distress, just ignore their blog.
I have run into this with only a couple of people. I have had messages calling me names, terrible names… I have had family members wish harm, call me stupid, tell me to get on meds, tell me I’m not a man. Tell me my service to my country as a Marine was basically invalid. These are just some examples I have come across as a Blogger. These are some of the people with a lot of HATE for all other people, especially if those people aren’t HillBillys! #HillBillys
I have decided if my blogs cause someone anger, such as my blog about Depression did… That is an emotional response to which, ever medium or art, I am working with. If a word, phrase or article, cause anger but the person keeps coming back, then that is a “friend” of the blog, even though the person themselves, proclaims they “hate” the blog, they continue to read it.
Bloggers have different levels of experience. I am just starting out as a blogger. I have been a very, very amateur writer for most of 40 decades. WordPress has started me on my personal journal of thoughts, humor, educating, joking around, living a better quality of life because I enjoy my hobby! This improves MY health. I don’t get much money AT ALL. If I was doing this for a living, I wouldn’t even have enough for a cup of coffee a day! These are for me! These are for the fans I have, which is over 500 strong! Thank you all!
I am weird. I am a liberal. I believe in Peace. I support efforts to save the rainforests, I think all human beings are completely equal to each other. I believe in the death penalty but I hate we have to use it… I am an individual, expressing my opinions. I am a proud, honorably discharged and decorated E4 of the Marine Corps, having served 8 total years. I am a father, husband, son, brother, friend and a gentle spirit. I mean NO offense but if I do offend, please accept my apologies.
Thanks for listening to ramblings of a creatively insane man,
