I've been blogging for nearly a decade (because 10 years doesn't sound nearly as great as all the gray hairs I've managed to nurture, along the way, YO!) and I've seen lots of good things happen to some pretty terrific people.
Some really craptastic stuff too, dammit.
Focusing on the great, the thing I love MOST about blogging communities? There is almost always someone ready to lift you up and out of [enter whatever has you in a funk, right at this particular moment, right here] by the very simple act of typing three little words:
"I get it."
Then again, there are times when the suckage starts to run REAL deep and, well, the damned gerbil refuses to slow down long enough for me to get the words out of my head.
Never mind, having to worry about good grammar, proper punctuation and my terrible habit of using pretend words.
See: craptastic. See also: suckage.
Besides, there is almost always SOMEONE ELSE who is most probably wading their way through some really craptastic suckage...worse even, dammit...and that someone may be reading this very blog post, right now, thinking:
"Duuuuuuuuude, you have NO idea."
Sooooooo, I try to blog about stuff that perhaps help make OTHER folks (yes, maybe even YOU!) feel a little better about themselves.
Today is NOT one of those days.
