Blog Foolosophy

I had a post here about tomorrow and the futsal tournament. I just scratched it. Upon review I felt it would be incredibly boring for anyone subjected to it that wasn’t me. And that is not how I want to roll.

I want to at least attempt to entertain. At least attempt to bring a smile to my readers’ faces. At least attempt to give you something to take away from this blog. I don’t mind what you take away, as long as it is something positive (… and not the TV. Please leave the TV where it is.)

I don’t mind if it is a smile, a laugh, a thought-provoker, a greater sense of self, a sense of enjoyment, a sense of connection, an idea… anything. Even if it puts you to sleep. That’s cool, because sleep is good for you.

However, I felt as though what I was typing previously portrayed absolutely none of what I want to achieve here, and would give most likely nothing to anybody.

So I scrapped it and explained myself and my blogging philosophy… kind of. Okay, let’s call it my Blog Foolosophy. And now I give you a Love Foolosophy. A song by one of my favourites, Jamiroquai. Something funky. Because I love everything and anything funky… and I love all of you!

More Than Meets The Eye

I am a  Daily Prompt behind. But, I do want to respond to yesterday’s. So, I will. Rules be damned. I am a maverick, after all.

Yesterday’s prompt asked us to examine elements of our blog, and what it all tells us about ourselves.

At first glance, my Blog Theme tells me I like things simple.

It was suggested once that I use a different theme. I recognised this advice to be logically correct, and then chose not to change my theme. This tells me two things.

1. I am very loyal. Yes, even to inanimate blog themes. I have the ability to feel attachment to everything. I am more empathetic than I’d even care to mention.

2. I trust my instincts and intuition. Certainly beyond my logic, and most definitely beyond anyone else’s logic. I observed a long list of themes before deciding this one felt right. I am not going back on my gut.

Honestly though, to others my blog probably raises more questions than it answers. Akin to the short length of my posts, and brief “About’ description, I am a person that appreciates mystery and intrigue. And lives it.

I am perhaps afraid of being boring, and counter that with only giving as much of myself at one time as is required. If you hang around long enough, you’ll get all the necessary pieces of the puzzle. In hindsight it was probably a waste of your time. But, by then it is too late. Perhaps that is my ploy. Perhaps I am just needy.

Perhaps it’s not that. Perhaps I feel that all the pieces at once are confusing and appear as a jumbled mess. Perhaps I know that if the pieces are presented bit by bit, the puzzle-solver is avoided being overwhelmed with too much at once and is allowed the time to put it all together succinctly and accurately. Perhaps my only aim is for you to know the real me, and avoid a misunderstanding because I know that the real me, and not the rushed first-impression me, is actually worth knowing in its completeness. Perhaps I appreciate the concept of accessibility. Perhaps I am simply aware.

Perhaps I am the whole lot.

Perhaps there’s even more to me than that.
