A query following from the previous query…


Okay, I don’t think I’m ready for, or have the time for, nor the energy for Twittering.

So – would it be weird if I just posted a short random thought post now and again? I usually write a bit more and try to give a visual if I can. Seems a bit…abrupt…to just say something odd and leave it at that.

Maybe I just like to explain myself too much, and a bit of brevity would be a fun change? I certainly do not think Deep Thoughts, unless they are the Jack Handy variety.

An example: I was picking up dog poop on a dry sunny day, and the flies were snacking on Neko’s landmines. It was a really a nasty surprise to have a shit-footed fly bolt away from its dinner and bounce spang off my cheek. What could I possibly wash with that would make me forget that I had molecules of dog dookey on my face? Nothing: there is nothing that can clean that memory away.

Yep, random as hell but I keep thinking about this and other things of even less importance. Will I bore the arse off of you guys if I post this nonsense?

  1. My attitude is that my blog is for my thoughts. That could mean a one liner post if that’s what takes my fancy. I think you have to ask yourself why you’re blogging? What are you wanting to get out of it? I started my Writer in the Woods blog in order to write whatever I felt like writing. To have the freedom to post anything : humour, serious stuff, personal experiences, poems, quotes, etc etc.

    Let’s face it you can write with such humour – even a short post on shit-flies and dog-doo-doo! So keep up the great work!

    • Wow – thank you! I do this because I sort of need to, becuase it gets the stuff out of my head, because it lets new and interesting things into my head, because I need to write, because I’ve enjoyed the interaction and meeting people and hearing their thoughts and jokes, because it’s dammed fun. I just don’t want to lose anyone because of being strange – for me – but you are right, y’all put up with a lot already!

  2. What Jude said! Hell, I posted a photo of my $21,000 hospital bill and didn’t really splain nuthin’!

    Come on Spiders! Give us the short blurps like you do in comments! I always seek out your comments wherever I’m lurking because your brain is so worth reading!

  3. I actually auto feed my blog posts as links to my Facebook and Twitter accounts. However I will drop in and post one liner jokes or links to issues I want to let my Titter followers know about (since they mostly share my political beliefs). Believe me a tweet about dog doo can be an improvement on the actual Twitter discourse (and funny to boot).

  4. Everything should be randomised. Makes for a more interesting life. There’s a time and a place for spontanaity. Ah feic, I never could spell that. Entropy is easier. Ich liebe das randomness.

  5. I like Twitter for those, ‘in the moment’ thoughts that pop into my head. For example, I saw a kid the other day in my building and thought, ‘Black people weren’t meant to have mohawk haircuts. Nobody was, to be honest. But especially them.’

    You get the idea.

Thoughts? Gardening tips? Cocktail recipes? Don't just like and leave, please - I can talk for Ireland and would love to prove it!
