With the ever so-realistic perspective that no one will read this, I have to admit the only time I left a blog or personal website this abandoned was back in 2006 with Black Epiphany. Luckily it's still up, it is basically the last website I made. The rest of the snippets have been blog-related, and I think it's for the best. It is so much easier to "accept" an abandoned blog or journal than a website. Back then, in the Yahoo! GeoCities and AOL's Hometown days, you were given tools to make a homepage and all of its sub-pages, separately.
It wasn't pretty, or consistent, and you would get a sub-domain URL longer than Steven Seagal's action filmography, but it got the job done. With the advent of chat rooms, came the profiles, and with the profiles, came the knack for cam whoring and posting just about anything you could inside a profile, with that, blogs became a more acceptable way to distribute all these pointless yet compelling activity of wasting Internet resources, and with the blogs, came social media. Social media nowadays consists of a bit of eveerything, you have a profile, with a comment section that doubles as a chat room/forum, and since most people with personal websites back then all just wanted to post pictures and/or videos and/or audio files, social websites cover pretty much all that.
So this is what I'm trying to get at, a blog is a lot of times like a social website's profile that takes a bit more time and dedication because you're not shoving it at people's faces, as you would in Facebook's Feed (everything is automatically published) yet you try to attract people to it, a trait that doesn't always pay off and makes one less discouraged if you're low on visitors and that push you crave.
Sadly, I've become accustomed to Facebook a bit too much to let it go because it takes a lot less effort to get [something] noticed on there. Be it a small rant, a funny video or picture, original content, anything is readily visible to everyone and I could be posting the same material on my blog and no one would know.
I would have to post it, and link it to my Facebook, and I would most likely get the feedback, if any, directly on my Facebook instead of this blog. It's stupid, it's sad, it's true. I'm probably talking to myself, but I just won't make any promises about keeping up this blog. The worst that can happen is that I lose the top-level-domain Dreth.com, which I really don't want to let the domain sharks get a hold of.
My hope is to post here more often, but with two jobs and what society considers a "wife", I find it less and less appealing to have to go to a site and write for nobody. And if I want others to see it, I feel I have to plaster it all over other sites, not only would it look pathetic and spam-ish, but it's annoying as fuck. I will try to find a solution to this, as some sort of widget for implementing both sites at once so this back-n-forth is not an issue anymore.
