Fuck sincerity…

Time to press this button...

I’ve decided to take down the posts about my friends.  I don’t need to prove anything -to myself or to anyone else.  Posting warm, fuzzy, nice things about people has diverted me from the purpose of this blog.

That purpose is to examine online folly, frolic and pranks – both my own and those of others.  To examine weird Internet trends and happenings.

So that’s what I’m going to do.

I was talking to my Paranoid Android last night on the phone and he was complimenting me on how much success I’m experiencing with my writing.  He is also a writer, so compliments from him are particularly precious to me.

I told him that at times I was becoming a little disheartened because I was receiving so much negative feedback.  I mean, I know that I’m asking for it, but it still doesn’t stop it from stinging a wee bit.

He told me this: If everyone likes your writing all of the time, you aren’t doing your job right.

Fair enough.

In other news: As a writer, I have Google alerts on my own name, the aliases I write under and the titles of the websites/urls of the websites I write for.  Today I found an alert in my email that lead me to this new blog: The Burn Book

Apparently someone has started a burn book because of this blog and the TFC.  Crazy.  I’ve had this blog for maybe three months and already it has spurred so much hatred that Bonnie & Ben had to start a blog so that they along with all their trolly minions could bitch about me in semi-private.  AND a blog has been started to bitch about all three of us.

The blog is pretty funny in how accurate it is.  Bravo to whomever is writing it.  I’m adding you to my blogroll and can’t wait to see who you post about next.

I feel like this project is a rousing success and is great research for the book I’m writing.

That is all.
