It’s an old question but it keeps cropping up.
Why the fuck do I bother with this site?
It takes a chunk out of my day where I could be otherwise doing sweet fuck all. I could be napping? I could be staring at the clouds trying to make pictures out of them? There are lots of things I could be doing, but instead I am sitting tapping out nonsense.
Do I do it for your sake? Hah! I bet if I charged a wee premium for reading this shite, you’d all soon disappear. I don’t kid myself.
Do I do it for the money? Well, that helps, but this site has been in recession for the last two years, with each month seeing a reduction so that I am getting less than a quarter of what I was getting a couple of years ago. Even the housing market hasn’t fallen that far. I wonder if NAMA would be interested in buying it?
Do I do it for myself? I dunno. Do I?
All I know is that most days I promise myself that I won’t write anything as I have nothing to write. Then the fingers get twitchy and the laptop looks at me in that accusing way it has, and the next thing I’m tapping out another inanity. Sometimes I read what I have published and cringe. I wonder why the fuck I wrote that but it’s too late to do anything about it because as soon as I press the Publish button, it flies off into feed readers or Twitter or something and I can’t call them back. So I am stuck with it.
I have made myself a wee promise that I won’t write anything if I have nothing to write about. Today, for example, nothing has happened yet. The newspapers are full of shite that isn’t worth writing about so I am devoid of ideas. For that reason, I won’t be writing today. I’m taking another day off.
Don’t you dare stop writing shite on this site! You’re right we probably wouldn’t pay a premium to read it, but then again not many will pay a premium to read Murdoch’s shite either.
You shite is always interesting to read and although as you say “nothing happened” I will still go away happy that I visited again today. BTW nothing happened to me today either, but that’s the way it is most days thank be. I can’t take too much excitement at my age.
Welcome Sean, and thanks for the insults/compliments. I know there will be those who say that I’m just fishing for compliments, but I’m not, and it’s nice to see someone appreciates that this site is pure drivel. After all, if it weren’t utter shite, then it wouldn’t be the site that you all love to hate?
It’s fucking May Day. Go dance around a pole with flowers in your hair and a gourd on your dick. Then go fornicate with farm animals. Give you something to write about.
@tt Ok I’ve now got flowers in my hair and a gourd hanging off my limp dick. There aren’t any farm animals close by so I’ll have to pass on that one as my knees aren’t too good and it’ll be dark soon.
Sean – Got a photo???
YouTube is your only man….
GD..You could focus on the 2012 Irish Blogger Awards. Maybe the blokes who give them out will getting ahed of themselves again.
The rate things are going, I’ll be the only one left on the scene by then.
You’d miss it. And we’d miss you.
I am proud to say I have no idea what a gourd is.
Tinman – I have no idea what a gourd is either, but don’t they make musical instruments out of them? Makes the thought of a picture of Sean a little more intriguing?
