People are dicks

I woke up today and had an email notification for wordpress. Cool, someone’s read an article of mine and found it interesting, or decided to follow for whatever reason. Nope. Just some wanker liking two of my pages because I tagged Kurt Cobain. Now I know a lot of my page likes are just that, a way to get views for their personal blog. Often not even reading or contributing to mine. It’s fine, people do it, all good, have fun.

What actually upset me this morning is that he liked the post where I most recently talk about how rough my life essentially is right now. It just feels heartless. Actually, it shows how people really often don’t stop and think about the other human being in another part of the world that they affect, for better or worse.

I don’t even think I can remove the like or anything like that? I’m still new to this. The guy is a selfish motherfucker. What a good start to my day.

Nice to meet you

I feel like for a personal blog, sharing so many intimate thoughts and feelings is a little strange when keeping things totally anonymous. I love that I feel so comfortable around such a positive, friendly and warm community around me. It’s small, I know. But I feel weird about hiding so much of myself when I give everything else away.

Blogging is a great experience, it’s great to meet everyone that has already dropped by: anyone who is interested enough to follow, anyone that cares enough to drop comments and share themselves with me. We’re all here for our own reasons, I guess I want to let my guard down on that level.

I’m Callum. It’s amazing to have met everyone that I have so far, and if you’re new here: It’s great to meet you 🙂

I’m trying online dating

This is a follow on from my previous blog post “So I’m thinking of online dating”. Check it out if you haven’t, or drop me some advice, share some of your own experiences with me. I’d love to hear them.

Yeah I’ve taken a day or two to come around to it and man up, but I’m tired and can’t sleep. This is often the sort of time where I make big decisions, you decide on if that’s sensible or dumb.

I’m going to sift through the massive amount of choices and after a little advice as well as a good amount of comforting from the super friendly author of http://intothebeauty.wordpress.com/. I’m not planning on spending any money here, just put some time into it. I guess I’m as ready as I’ll ever be, time to nut up or shut up!

I’ll probably give updates on some details, though I’m expecting nothing out of this. Who knows? It’s an experience that I haven’t explored before, either way. It’ll be fun getting to know some new people, if we’re not compatible..well..Nothing ventured, nothing gained eh?

As super apprehensive as I am about it, I know I’m going to struggle a hell of a lot writing the little about myself. Wish me luck, I’m going in.

Everything starts with a beginning

I’ve wanted to write a personal blog for a long time, I’ve always found an excuse of being too busy or always having something to do. I’ve realised I don’t really like sharing a lot of my thoughts with anyone, I’m not as close to anyone as I wish I was, or the people I could share thoughts with aren’t physically around me right now.

My posting will likely be sporadic, but I’ll likely use this as a little outlet for my own amusements, as well as problems or worries (which there are countless). As much as reception of something like this would be cool, I’m not sure anyone will read my blog. Though I’d reflect on it as positive  if a single person was to view my writing and either personally gain from the experience, or share their own views with me here.
