I tried, I failed. I wanted to completely redo blogging, start fresh and write a blog about myself and my actual life, using my real name and location, blah blah blah. I got bored half-way into writing a dozen different posts (all but one left unfinished), so I can’t even imagine how banal it would be for other people to read them. I would link you to the single post I did, but… I can’t in good conscious go against my wife’s wish to remain anonymous. Trust me, though, it’s bad.
At the same time, I want to change the name of this blog, and by extension change the URL. I feel like I’ve gone as far as I can with “Anything But Theist,” and yet I would only consider renaming it if I was to shell out the $20 bucks or so for a real www.[name].com address. I’m unemployed and haven’t bought anything for myself since I had a job last summer (besides food).
So, then I thought about putting a PayPal donation link on my site to get the money. But honestly, I would rather you give that money to a homeless person (even if they were just going to spend it on booze or drugs) than to me. I won’t tarnish my blog with advertising, and I think begging is best reserved for people actually in need.
I got some good fiction writing done, so at least something came out of my brief hiatus. I haven’t read most of your blogs yet, though I checked my blog and I must say… I had the same average traffic this week from posting nothing as I did the previous week of posting.
Well, I’m off to drop another Music Monday into the toilet, fish it out with a little goldfish net, and throw it into the fan of my blog to be splattered around the internet. Sorry to those who wasted time coming here to see no updates the past week… I feel like I owe you a slightly better quality week of posts before I settle back into my sub-par rut, but we’ll see if I can muster the necessary creativity.
