Writing is hard, coming up with something to write about is harder. I find it much easier to react creatively than to present an independent, creative action; thus, I find myself in comment sections quite a bit. Not to read, oh no, I am not one to provoke the wrath of the gods; I follow the first commandment of Internet browsing: “Thou shalt not read the comments.” I am a commenter. I am one of those that hopes that there are people stumbling upon the Internet for the first time, unaware of the laws. I reside below the byline. I am not one of the trolls who comments to cause pain or hurt; I only continue the conversation started by those more creative than myself. I desire only to bring a smile to the poor lost soul who slips too far past the story.
So, what does a serial commenter hope to accomplish with a blog? Short answer: I don’t know yet. I do know it is time to branch out and try something new. I don’t know what this will turn into, more than likely just another cobweb-filled corner of the Internet that no one ever sees, but maybe it will help me create something of my own.
