My Twitter post has been further pushed back, because I wanted to put this out earlier, as it is a reaction post. I should stop Tweeting until that post is up because I just keep coming out with things I want to include in there.
So I was made Holy Blog Of The Week by our good Pope Timothy Bowen, in case you didn't notice (I suspect you possibly didn't) and I decided to respond to it, and the rest of this post is going to explain why. His description of this blog is "Mark is a bright young man from across the pond. This is his personal blog, where he rants about various topics from Minecraft to how his day was, to the Fresh Prince of Belle Air." As much as I love Timothy (NO HOMO) and Eris (Possible homo) I never really regarded this place as all that personal. I mean, I suppose that given categories of blogs, personal is the closest mine gets, I tend to blog about anything that comes to mind, and this does usually involve a story from my past. But I just don't see myself as all that personal here.
I don't go into a lot of detail about myself. Other than that I am, or was, a sociopathic mess. I'm still a mess mind. I don't really talk all that much about my current life, about things that are actually going on for me right now. Fair do's most of that is because not much does go on in my life. Frankly if it did, I would have less trouble blogging. I would actually. So I suppose in that sense I am a personal blogger, but I've seen blogs wayyyyyyyyyyyy more personal than mine. Some a little too personal.
I suppose what I'm trying to say is "Thank you very much most gracious and great and powerful Pope Timothy, and I just don't see myself as all that personal. I do go into detail about some things, and I don't about others. Basing this place on personal experience also just makes it easier for me to do. It's a shame I'm running out of personal experiences, and I think I ran out of ones that I didn't mind my family knowing quite some time ago. I'm informed that my sister really does read this stuff and "Has learnt more about me from my blog than from me".
I suppose that does mean this stuff is quite personal. I have defeated my own argument. Damn.
