Learning our process
Writing is a great thing. To me, it’s meditative, like when you make bread for the first time. After going through the process, you appreciate things a bit more. Rather than just throw something on the wall to see what sticks, we’re going through and applying posts that define our thinking process over time. That’s going to continue, but we’ve been losing focus on what we really love to do over writing and that is music.
We think about what one city thinks about another one and why it matters. Well, it might matter and it might not. It certainly does matter for those artists and musicians who’ve spent the entirety of their time in that city, so there’s certainly a vibe; history in the making, as we speak, and we want to get back to those things soon, but first I want to clear some things up this blog.
More about this blog
Let’s talk about me right now. I want to make it clear that I am not employable. The reason for this is because I refuse to be. I don’t do job interviews anymore. I don’t go to monster to check for new positions and I even updated that profile with a statement that says, “I don’t do cover letters, so forget it”. Sometimes, I play with the idea of fucking with these services and others for employment to work my way up to telling them to go fuck themselves.
Some of this is in our about page but I think it’s okay to flesh that out here on this beat-down a little more. What that also helps me do is to devote more of my time to this blog. That means plenty of posting and as you’ve seen, we’ve been adding older affiliate posts to this service over time. It’s been a slow process but it’s on going so we’ll keep doing it until it’s right. And that also brings us to the point that we’re well aware of what a lot of blogs do, who also refer readers to affiliate sites; they weaken trust between blogger and reader.
We wrote a post on this long ago and what you’re seeing right now is binge-blogging in action. Over the time that we’ve been doing this, we’ve written many different posts on other sites, but unlike those other blogs they are not diabolical attempts to lure readers into affiliate sites for any other reason than to read original stuff from the minds of the few people who are involved with putting this blog together. We are writers in the purest sense, and we’re not any different from another other writer out there. We use as many tools as we can to make the writing experience more interesting to us. As mentioned however, we’re aware of the distrust of ending up at a content mill when you come to a lot of these blogs. We don’t do that. As a matter of fact, we’re against those pieces of shit and doing something about it.
But we really want to point out writing quality. As mentioned in a affiliate post, we’re aware that some readers demand more from what they read. These are the same people, who decide that some people should be writers and others should not. It’s kind of what I think about the Oxford comma, “the best way to get rid of the Oxford comma is to get rid of it’s fans”, who are kind of the same people who criticize us bloggers, for getting into something they think we have no business in.
But we’re fighting back on that too, by posting on here everyday. A good source that describes a slow process with the responsibility that comes with a service like this, is the Passover Greetings from the Editor I read earlier tonight on the Intercept, where they say they will take their time and deliberately post when they have something to post. Of course, someone on that same comment board tried to shit all over that by saying:
