Okay confession: I've never had a blog before. In fact, not only have I never had a blog, I've looked at MAYBE two blogs in my entire life. So this is definitely new territory for me. The reason behind my complete dis-interest in blogs is kind of silly, but as I am a silly and kind of ridiculous person, I guess that fits. Here it is: I hate the word blog. It's not a real word. It's ridiculous. And sounds stupid. There. I said it. I meant it. I think maybe it's because it sounds a little too close to the word "blob" or something. I mean honestly, what rocket scientist came up with this word? And why did we all listen to him? What's the root of the word blog, I'd like to know. But I digress, I'm not positive on the source but whatever the reason, the name alone was enough to deter me from having any desire to read the blogs of others, much less any interest in creating my own blog. And before you go all Shakespeare on me, telling me that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, allow me to quote one of my favorite heroines of all time: " Well, I don't know. I read in a book once that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, but I was never able to believe it. A rose just couldn't smell as sweet if it were a thistle or a skunk cabbage!"
Now although I am, by nature, immovably stubborn, nobody has tried to get me to start a blog, or told me my ridiculous bias was...well...ridiculous..and therefore it was inevitable that over time, I would eventually concede that maybe a blog, although the word sounds unbelievably asinine to me isn't such a bad idea. I can rant and rave and post my ridiculous thoughts and biases all I want- and everyone else can mock and enjoy. It is, after all, one of the great pleasures of my life to provide people with amusement. I have nothing if not incredible entertainment value. (c:
