No Fluff

The thing about my writing is that I want it to get across a point or opinion.

The readers don’t have to agree with my persepective. They can just take it as an after thought and move on with their lives.

I feel this way, because that’s the way I see other blogs that I read.

I’ll read their perspective, their reasonings, and walk away with more of an understanding on why people see things the way they do.

I personally hate fluff writing. Sometimes I’ll give in and read something that sounds a little delicious, but for the most part, I stay away from it. I don’t really enjoy reading about how some famous movie star got her eyebrows waxed and the whole world is going crazy about it. It’s just not my cup of tea.

With that being said, it’s really hard to find things to write about these days. Mostly because there is a lot going on that ‘s negative, and I don’t want to be hating on everything and everyone in my blogs all the time.

Another reason being, I’m trying to dip my toes in the area employment of writing, and most are requesting a website to showcase my work.

Well, as any regular reader of my blog knows…. I write about some crazy things. My language is that of a dirty pirate. And most of my blogs are hyperbolous rants.

So, I’ve been thinking about starting a separate (G-rated) blog to use as a sample of my writing. But the thing is, I don’t really want to write about one thing.

Allow me to explain. There are blogs out there dedicated solely to food, or fashion, or makeup. And that is ALL of me. I love to talk about food, fashion AND makeup. So I’m having some difficulty narrowing down a theme for the blog.

Furthermore, I would JUST be starting it, so I would have to at least give it 6 months to a year of consistent writing if I wanted to use it as something solid.

So with all of this floating around in my head, I sit down to blog and I sort of just go blank. What do I want to write about? How do I write about it? In today’s world, everything has to be PC or there’s going to be a lawsuit.

And again, I don’t want to write fluff for the sake of writing. I don’t want to talk about the latest fashion trends unless there’s a decent point to the article.

I’ve thought about writing essays and poems on here -which I have anyway- but as someone once told me, “I read your blogs to find out what’s going on with you.”

And that’s true too. I created this blog to document all of the crazy things that have happened in my life.

So it’s this sort of fog that I’ve been floating in, and I’m looking for a lily pad to at least touch base on.

With that also being said, this is my little touch base blog. This is one of the things that has been happening in my life lately that’s causing a delay in my usual blog routine. I do have a lot of emotions out there that I want to express, it’s just…. not stable at the moment. So my blogs would make me sound bi-polar. And it’s not that I’m fickle, there’s just a lot of emotions to be felt at any given time.

Anyway!

I hope that for those out there who are reading and continue to check back – THIS is one of the things that’s been going on right now. It’s a complicated world in my head and I’m just trying to sort things out.
