Why I decided to blog.

Until recently I haven't really taken much notice of the blog world, probably because only a few of my friends and family are bloggers and I haven't been particularly interested in anything celebrity bloggers have had to say. I was never the type to keep a journal or write down my thoughts(I'm more of a doodler really) but I find its rather therapeutic so I'm going to continue with this little experiment, hopefully I'll learn something useful about my self.

Seymour gets in the way as he always does but I've decided to ignore him and try to battle this bout of writers block head on.

For as long as I can remember I have not been able to muster the amount of passion that is necessary to follow any course. This seems to come easily to other people and my hope is by venting my thoughts anonymously, to complete strangers, you will help me to find passion and my purpose in life.

A rouge ''zombie satellite'' threatens other crafts!

It must be a slow news day....

According to the article a communications satellite called Galaxy 15 got it's ''brain'' chomped on by a solar flare and broke off contact with the mother planet. This should have resulted in the zombiesat peacefully passing on to that big satellite emporium in the sky but instead it's still alive and kicking..... Apparently this isn't normal satellite behavior, even if it does broadcast the syfy channel and scientist are baffled.
This has attracted the attentions of good old conspiracy theorists and they are now harping on about space junk and technology gone wild flashing their boobs at every one for nik naks. But this sat became undead in early April so why does everyone care now?!

Who know, why did I click on the link? Because it had the word zombies in it of course!

Wow it worked!

Amazing the the internet spiders seem to have focused their attentions to my humble speck of a blog after I mentioned them! I'm now on Google search! Awww good spider bots I'm now slightly less scared of you! Maybe it was my clumsy attempts to to embrace blogger tec that warmed their digital hearts.
I feel i must do something to calibrate this momentous occasion. This calls for a humorous video of Hitler talking to a cat! yes slowly but surely I'm getting the hang of this.

On the nature of blogging

AAAAaaa fuck everything i write is in Hindu!!

I was going to write about the chapters in my life, taking advantage of a rare bout of nostalgia but then Seymour reared his ugly head and pointed out new teaser videos for the up coming apocalypse according to the world of supernatural (he always knows how to find the perfect thing to distract me).
So instead of a heart felt(depressing) narrative on my life I instead feel prompted to vent my frustrations on the complexities of having a blog.

Prior to this venture I considered my self a rather tec savvy person. The cyber world did not strike fear in my heart as it does in others, in fact I view it as my favorite drug rather than a tool. But then I started delving into world of blogs and now I feel like a noob, or even worse I now understand my mothers anxiety when faced with anything computer related.

Even in theses early stages where I'm trying to keep it simple I'm faced with Html codes, traffic, monetizing, url links, Pinging!? meta tags, SEO services :S and don't get me started on the various layouts, colors and display options! messing around with them resulted in the a fore mentioned Hindi text freak out.
Also I've come to understand that google sends out 'spiders' to 'crawl' all over my blog........ and this is supposed to be a good thing, feels more like the matrix to me. I was under the impression that millions of normal people blog, I've even seen some apparently run by infants (ok cheap shot I know) so this really doesn't help my self esteem.

The reason I even attempted incorporating all these codes and tec is that my blog doesn't seem to exist, at least not in the eyes of any search engine. And while I didn't really expect it to get a million followers in a day the whole thing seems a little redundant if no one reads it, I need your feed back in order to better myself after all.
The traffic problem becomes trickier due to the fact that i wanted this to be an anonymous blog untainted by peoples existing views on me, so it is not meant to be viewed by anyone who knows me in the real world, which eliminates the easiest and most common way of getting your blog noticed.

But I shall persist even if no ones reading at the very least this provides a new way for me to procrastinate and it's kinda therapeutic too.

But for every...... (what are these things called anyway? posts? articles? whatever) for every post I post (?!) there are 5 others I couldn't be bothered putting up because I didn't think any one would read them (or because of Seymour) so hah! have that on your conscience oh absentee followers.
