I Blog For Me, Myself, And I – not for you. Not to get your approval.
✭ Pertinent links:
—- I BLOG FOR ME, NOT YOU —–
I’ve already made note of this in other blog pages, but here it is again:
I use this blog for me.
I blog predominantly for me, not you.
I’m not interested in pleasing other people. I’m not looking to get a large, regular audience with this blog. If I do, okay. But that is not my goal.
I use this blog to vent publicly. I use it as a journal of sorts.
I’m not here to get other people’s approval.
I am not here to get other people’s input on how they think I should blog or express my views about anything.
This is why I don’t appreciate these condescending morons
(note: I don’t mind so much the folks who express concern and sympathy for me who are polite. I am talking about the ones who chew me out and who are condescending)
, who stop by this blog and lecture me on how I may “come across” to other people, or,
(and these are some of the sorts of comments I get in the blog posts by visitors that I delete, and they later leave new posts complaining about being deleted, which I only skim the first sentence, then delete, and block them)…
I don’t appreciate these condescending morons …
who say they think I should change my approach on the blog;
that they will stop following this blog unless I change quality “X” about the blog or my behavior; e.g.,
they object to the language I use on the blog lately (ie, cuss words); or,
they make repeated nutty, crazy, unreasonable, rude demands and threats, such as they will un-follow the blog unless they get my real name (see (Link): this post for more on that); or,
that they are not happy with my “attitude”
If you go back to the blog archives, for the first year or two I had this blog, I was “Little Miss Sunshine and Sweetness.”
If you don’t like the newer version of me and how I blog in 2013 / 2014, go back and read the blog posts from 2010, 2011.
My 2010 – 2011 posts are very genteel, G-rated, and relatively snark-free.
I’ve noticed since becoming more agnostic – oh hell, even when I was a full blown Christian – that many Christians are uncomfortable with snark, sarcasm, brashness, assertiveness, and people (especially WOMEN) who say it like it is (and I’ve admitted many a time to being a woman on this blog, so you know my gender).
Many Christians seem to be more comfortable with Christians (especially females) who never utter a cross, negative word about anything or anyone, and who are sweetness and light all the time about everything.
I didn’t understand that view, or like it, even when I was a complete Christian.
I’ve always had a biting sense of humor and a negative bent to my nature but had to hide it while a Christian because other Christians frown on it, or act uncomfortable about it.
Most Christians are codependent, by the way – that is why many of you Christians are ill at ease with sarcasm, bluntness, directness, assertiveness, and confrontation.
Some of my views on some topics have changed since I first started blogging with this blog in 2010.
People have a tendency to only read newer posts (from 2013 / 2014), or to react to only the ones that they find most offensive.
Once more, let this fact sink in:
I am not blogging for YOU.
I am primarily blogging FOR ME.
I figure if preachers get wind of some of the blog posts here and change their habits from being marriage-centric as a result of seeing my views, that’s great.
If marriage obsessed preachers don’t see the blog at all, or do and yet remain unchanged, oh well, c’est la vie.
But again, I blog primarily FOR ME.
You are only getting a SLICE of my life, views, and my personality on THIS PARTICULAR blog.
