Public Service Annoucment.

Not really. I've been thinking about this blog for a while, in my opinion I'm beginning to produce some really top notch content. I've become something of a arm chair Anthropologist, which suits me find because field work is a pain in the ass. In a way my field work is my day to day observations and my interaction with the social realities set before me.

Given the steady decline of my following, I'm becoming increasingly discouraged. Sometimes I feel that the only one who reads my posts anymore is my dear friend Clown Face. I do understand that this blog is to serve as a electronic venue for my innermost thoughts on a variety of topics, I had gotten used to the inter-connectivity of a following who share their opinions... and in turn create discussion. Apparently, I like that sort of thing.

Perhaps, I've gotten too personally involved. I will be the first one to admit that I've involved quite a bit of ego onto this blog. Putting this aside my declining subscriber base has put a damper on my plans of creating my own website. Until I can get things rolling again and get some good discussion flowing.. the investment isn't worth it.

Perhaps I'm just discouraged. Time will tell.

 I actually had a blog of substance planned, but this had been eating away at me. I hope putting it out here now will lay it to rest, so I can continue producing my usual content.

Discouragement is for the weak.
Keep writing, people read it.
After all MR. Anthropologist.... how will the little future anthropologists know what was going on without your lovely blog.

Though it's easy for me to say, "Don't be discouraged by the lack of comments" I'm gonna have to say it anyway. If people are reading the thoughts you've been planting on this blog (and I bet they have been since I see little red dots on your World Domination widget and you now have 25 followers) they will have gained some interesting insight on how we humans react to our environment and others and why.

Plus, your personal accounts can help someone out, helping them to relate and understand their own little part of the world better. I've experienced this, first hand.

Keep plugging along, my friend. I've been at it for 3 years and I don't have a shitload of comments, usually, either, but I do Psycho Carnival all for myself. Everyone else can suck horse cock.

Tee hee.
