Everyone has a blog, right? And there are all those guides to increasing your traffic and 10 easy ways to promote your blog, etc. but, while I find it thrilling that actual total strangers somehow find there way here, I haven't actually told anyone that this blog exists.
(Of course, I have made reference to porn and drinking your own urine, which seems to bring the punters in, so that's nice. You should always have a safety net.)
There are various reasons why I decided to keep the blog largely under my hat. I think I have had some trouble being myself in my everyday life, so I am experimenting with it here. Why try to mix the two? As with all sciency things, it's important to have a control.
And also, in everyday life, it drives me fucking stark-staring bonkers when people don't listen. Here, everyone else can get fucked. I always get to finish my sentences. No one interrupts me or tries to guess what I'm going to say next or shoehorns in their own agenda.
And finally, my mother probably wouldn't like the swearing.
