The purpose of an inconsistent blogger

Back when dad blogs were a thing, I was churning out posts on an almost daily basis. I’d write about anything and everything that took my fancy… and anything and everything people paid me to write about if I’m being honest. Now though, I’m not so sure what, if anything, I should be doing with this little website. I polished it up the other day and was quite chuffed with the way it looks on a PC, but on a phone it’s still a bit naff. I realise though, that people won’t necessarily care about that if they’re reading quality content… ummm. That brings me back to square one. As a wannabe writer, I want to concentrate all my efforts on creating books and short stories, not necessarily on blog posts. And I sure as shit have no desire to go down the route of get-a-real-job “influencers” and create content for content sake.

I’d rather shit in my hands and clap.

So, what is the purpose of having a website? Let’s be honest, it’s so much easier to just knock things up on social media, but I do like to waffle on every now and then. So, I guess that’s what I’ll do… I’ll waffle on (Please note, Exhibit A)… a newsletter if you will. I’ll not bother doing a subscribe to me, email type of thing, because we all know I’ll forget. But I will try to post regular(ish) updates about what is going on. At the very least, it’ll be nice for me to look back on in the future when I’m sitting around a table playing poker and smoking cigars á la Michael Connelly, Stephen J. Cannell, James Patterson and, umm, Richard Castle.

A completely genuine scene from Castle. Season 2.

Which is kind of what I’ll be doing today… heading into the city to meet up with a group of amazing Brisbane writers. So, there we go… news(ish)… in a letter(ish) format.

I did it!

Now I should probably go write something.
