Blogs I tried

Tumblr – I really did try to sustain it even though I really didn’t. I didn’t know what kind of life my ill-fated Tumblr had to take when I made it. Only thing that’s certain right now is that it’s lifeless. If posting an Instagram picture of sheer nonsense, of sheer uninterestingness once every month is considered trying, consider me tried the fuck out. I would love to really sustain it but it’s just not my personality. My personality is really WordPress, the kind that demands long, thoughtful drafts of things you think need some kind of length. It’s the kind of personality that thinks proper punctuation is something to care about when talking about drinking problems, Mariah Carey and Chris Martinez. Maybe MC and CM really do demand proper thoughts construction but in a Tumblr, those things don’t matter much because words should be in fonts that are more interesting than the words themselves, and in frames that will look gorgeous for when they get reposted in Facebook. Also a serious problem is my deteriorating desire to post pictures which is why I hardly think of getting a new camera with 79 megapixels which if megapixel-count is to be trusted, could turn the most rabid picturetaking hater to be the most picture-posty person in your socials. Actually I’m just ‘economically-challenged as hell’ and maybe Tumblr is not right for me and I accept it wholeheartedly.

Livejournal – The typing space in Livejournal is, for some reason, quite welcoming and by far the easiest platform to type into. I don’t know what craziness I’m talking about, ‘quite welcoming typing space’ but it truly feels okay in a Livejournal journal to just type and not care so much about paragraph lengths and things. It does feel like a journal that you can just shit into. If you really need to get a bit of sense of what I’m beginning to realize is stupid nonsense, make a Livejournal of your own, type lame shit, and congratulate yourself for creating one in an age when social networks are the grand kings. You have just out-hipstered anyone in the online world who ever thought to blog and engage in a form of social network. Sorry for mentioning hipster for I never wish to touch upon that subject for there’s very little in my being that appreciates or understands the entirety of a hipster’s being.

Blogger – I have bad memories with this blog mainly because of my own stupidity, but one never forgets his first time, does he? No, he does not. Therefore, Blogger for me is like the first sex. I can choose to be gross and discuss why but I choose not.   Nevertheless, it is through Blogger that I met some of the most interesting people I will ever meet. The compulsion to meet social media friends is not as strong as it once was with Blogger. I think that era, for me, is over.

WordPress – Initially I hated the idea of a like button for WordPress because those likes could have been comments. But WP feels differently, and what it feels is that it has to be with the times and participate in the perpetuation of this habit of liking things, which can be a relief considering how much Internet reading we have to get through in a day. In short, I’m at peace with it. WP now has a follow feature like in Tumblr and anywhere else. I think that out of most blogs out there in the market today WordPress is the most personality-challenged. It’s totally me.

Sometimes I feel like the world benefits from my not saying anything anywhere.

But life should consist of consistently trying and trying even harder!

That you should try and try until you die. Like this right here.

  1. Risking to sound like a blogger loyalist, do indulge my curiousity. Does WordPress allow you to edit the coding of your page? What I like about blogger is it affords me the freedom to edit my layout templates on an html/ coding level. Which makes for a more bespoke experience altogether. I never really got Tumblr though. It felt like a purgatorial non-commital expanse between the attention-deficit Twitter, and the collage-ic Pinterest.


  2. @red, i think WP allows that. I’m just not sure if the freedom to mess with your WP page is the same as what Blogger allows. I never really bothered. Tumblr seemed promising but I can’t fit it in my Internet life so now I just let it languish in its emptiness. 🙂
