You know how, when, you have a hobby on the side and you do it for fun and it makes you happy? And then you find out that other people like to do the same thing, so you hang out with them and it works for awhile, but then they wear you out with wanting to have meetings and rules and long discussions about procedures? And you have to start weighing your love of the hobby against the people who take the fun out of it for you? And then you consider giving up your hobby altogether?
Yeah, well blogging is like that for me. I blog for fun. I’ve never claimed to be blogging for any other reason. My blog is as autobiographically accurate as James Frey’s memoir, yet some people insist on using the comments section as a forum in which to publicly ask questions I’ve already answered privately.
Since I enjoy blogging, I’m going to keep doing it. But it’s my house with my rules, and trolls aren’t welcome.
If you have any constructive comments to make regarding my decision, or if you just want to say, “It smells like updog in here”, please e-mail me. My address is the same as it’s always been and it’s publicly listed at the top of the page.
