A blog post about blogging. Sorry.
I apologise for the fact that this blog has become a bit of a dump for funny-stuff-politicalish-quotes-and-music-nicked-from-other-people recently. I’ve been trying to concentrate on my book blog, where actual quality original blogging happens.
It’s not that I have anything against the kind of Tumblrs that are made up solely of reblogs; I follow them, my Likes are full of their posts - it’s just that they’re ten a penny and make nobody special. I would rather post almost nothing on here than have it become the reblog dump it so easily could be.
I aspire to be like Caragh and Christine and Anna but I find that I just don’t have enough to say. They’re so willing to put their whole lives out there, and I just don’t have that kind of courage, even in the name of comedy.
I also aspire to be like marxisforbros, who posts content that is important. I want this blog to mean something. I want to talk about how I feel about gender and social injustice and music and literature - the things I actually care about, the things I lecture my friends about.
But until I find a way of being funny and likeable at the same time as saying something that matters, you guys should know that either this blog will feature these stolen bits of intermittent quotes and music, or it will be silent. In the mean time, it would mean a lot to me if you guys followed Rosa Reads, where I act like I’m hilariously funny whilst being wanky and reviewing books. So, y’know, if you’re down with that then. Y’know. Get down.#whydoihaveablog #drinkyourjuice #avocadosalad #marxisforbros #This is not a hiatus post I swear
