I never know what to blog about these days. Despite the fact that I’ve been blogging regularly since I was thirteen (like all the other immature, whiny, platitude-spewing kids who don’t belong on the internet) I now don’t know what I’m supposed to say.
I do know what I don’t blog about, and here you may see my conundrum. I don’t swear on this blog and I don’t talk about topics I wouldn’t discuss in front of my six-year-old cousin or my boss. After all, this is a public blog linked to from my Facebook and website and I don’t want family, employers, or professors seeing anything I wouldn’t want them to see. (You guys know where to go if you want that stuff, anyway.)
Although I am highly opinionated about a lot of things, I don’t discuss controversial topics here. Honestly there’s nothing I could say that hasn’t been said already, and I’m not the most eloquent person around here.
Lastly, I don’t blog about personal aspects of my life here, even if they are “safe” topics. The fact of the matter is that this is, again, a public blog, and I don’t need or want just anybody to know about whatever personal problems or thoughts I have. Again, if you really want to see my extensive soul-searching and ramblings, you know where to go.
So having whittled it all down to nothing inappropriate, nothing controversial, and nothing deeply personal, there’s not that much for me to put on there that’s super interesting. Add the fact that anything that’s not original content goes on my Tumblr, and there’s almost nothing to put on here.
However, I don’t want to ever give up blogging. It’s therapeutic to just type something out and throw it into the abyss of the internet, even if I’m not some celebrity or internet personality. I mean, I know I do have a fairly interesting life–I’m not a totally boring person.
Me: […] i suppose i am just not a fascinating person
Ben: i would disagree
Me: really now
Ben: you’re going to be a famous concert pianist, right?
Ben: how many people do that
So what do you guys want to see on here? Funny stories, the day-to-day workings of my life? Me waxing poetic about various random things? The progress of my practicing? Whatever design-type projects I might be working on at any given time? Pictures, videos?
