My first post on Psycho Carnival was created December 13, 2007.
Back then I was an amateur, an Internet virgin, if you will, in the Blogosphere, completely new to all of the glorious-ness (yeah, right) and often times, utter bullshit of the world of blogging. I used and still use this site to rant, rave, entertain, dazzle with my brilliance, vent out feelings of my depression disorder, humor, inform and everything in between. I'm a multi-dimensional human being. Why shouldn't I have a versatile blog that shows it? For that matter, why shouldn't every blogger have a multifaceted blog? Surely, they don't have a one-sided, dull-as-hell aspect to their personality?
Or do they? Tee hee.
Hell... Someone that just found themselves on this site might think me a loon with multiple personalities with the way I go from producing a post chock full of sardonic humor to another tainted with serious information to yet another post that's more or less a ruthless diatribe of grievances on a particular subject. Oh, how many times have I reflected upon our apparently insane species?
Who knows? Perhaps I am a loon, as well. Better yet... Do I give a hearty fuck?
Can you guess the answer?
The Point: You never know what you're going to get when you drop by for a visit. And I'd like to keep it that way. Like I eluded to before... 'multi-dimensional human being = versatile blog'.
One thing that does remain a constant on this site is my full blown honesty about everything. At times, if you've been even an intermittent reader of this blog, you know I can be brutally honest about others and especially myself. I'm like that not because the reader can't see me (my pretty picture of my screaming face doesn't count) but it's because life's experiences has worn me down or straightened me out, somewhat, and taught me the lesson that It Does No One Any Good, Most Especially Yourself, To Be Dishonest.
Trust me when I say that being truly honest is a true relief for one's peace of mind in every way possible. If that sounds simplistic, that's because it is. Pure and simple. Get it? Lying, superficiality, all forms of deception and people who smile while they are saying something unjustifiably cruel to another human being are things and actions I absolutely despise about fuckers, ahem, I mean people.
Well, no, I actually meant fuckers.
I'll get off my soapbox... For now. Heh heh. I get a little carried away.
I'm frankly surprised I've been running this site long enough to have done 300 posts. I thought it would be just a way to express myself for a short stint. But that hasn't been the case, obviously. Along the way, I've connected and interacted with many bloggers over the years. A multitude of those folks have "left the building" so to speak. I haven't heard from or seen anything new from them. They just quit blogging for whatever reason. Maybe their lives outside of blogging took over, preventing them doing it any more. Who knows? If you're a seasoned vet of blogging, you know the story and have seen your share of bloggers come and go, as well. In some cases, it's a real shame because they really contributed something special to the net... Which is rare and of true value.
And I'm not so egotistical that I don't acknowledge the fact that numerous amounts of bloggers have been at their projects, their creations, their babies and their blogs for a whole lot longer than I have. No, siree. I have high respect for those folks. Blogging can be a tiresome, mind-straining, brain-busting activity very often. And often times, the payoff comes only when you've completed a post that you can be proud to display to the rest of wacky folks in the world of blogging.
In closing, I'd like to thank those bloggers and readers who have hung with me or visited this site on this insane Internutty Journey and have interacted with me with good humor and/or common sense. Peace out, brothers and sisters! You may now go back to porn surfing... If you have gotten this far down the page.
Honestly and Insanely Yours (but you cannot detain me, literally),
