It’s been well over a year since the last time I posted anything to my old LiveJournal blog. Over the past couple of years, I’ve been busy getting addicted first to Facebook, and then to Twitter. Only recently have I felt the urge to write this kind of stuff again.
I could have gone back to LiveJournal, but I feel like it has run its course in my life. And so, here we are. A new home for my meandering thoughts.
A word about the word that I chose for this little project. Misanthropoeia. It’s a mash-up of misanthropy and mythopoeia (myth-making in literature). I suppose it could be taken to mean the creation or encouragement of misanthropy in my writing. Which is not the case at all.
It’s just a made-up word. That I made up for no reason, really. Wait, not quite true. I made it up a few years ago when I was pondering starting a line of discouragement cards. Really mean-spirited stuff that, I must admit, was quite good.
Anyway, all this is to say that I don’t quite know what this blog will be “about,” other than me jabbering on about stuff I really like. Things like:
- football (what North Americans call soccer)
So, let this serve as what I hope is an appetizer. A taste of what may be around the corner. Please feel free to visit often, and always feel free to comment.
Oh, and I suppose I should also add a little warning of sorts. I will sometimes use what silly people call “profanity.” As if there are any words that aren’t sacred. When I feel strongly about something, I will often use strong language.
