Abort Some Babies… Murder Some People…
… and have some fun! I bet that got your attention, didn’t it? It’s always the negativity people love and want to read, I wonder why?
It’s funny how I am attacked and even threatened in some cases for my more controversial posts attacking religion, bullshit, children, women, pretty much anyone that isn’t me. Those blogs receive upwards of 200+ views. Yet, when I post blogs that are heartfelt concerning the death of my brother; when I post blogs to humanity informing them that this isn’t the end, there is more out there than just us and we need to strive to be better, we need to not fear death, but embrace it. When I pour out my entire, unfiltered life story on my blogs, those posts are overlooked. I get maybe 70 views at the most. I know people may say that I lack loyal readers – but, there isn’t a term like so!
Am I complaining? No. I don’t give a shit if you read or not. I write because it’s my therapy. Yes, I will admit I am an angry person, bitter, misanthropic, hostile, too ; however, blogging is my therapy and it gets me through the day sometimes (that and alcohol :P) Who are you to bitch at me for being negative when you are just as guilty?
I was told that I should expand my horizons so to speak, post some entries that weren’t as “negative”, posts that didn’t go along with my usual writing style. However, those aren’t what “sell” so to speak. As they say, sex sells – nothing else does? Maybe, negativity sells more for NORMAL bloggers like me. (Mind you, celebrity bloggers even if they post shit are going to be appreciated – keeping that as a different case for that!)
People want controversy, people love anger, people love hostility. I don’t care how much you deny it, you do. You love coming to my blog to see what new post I have that is going to set you off. How do I know? I notice the views. Secretly you agree with me. You will never admit to it, but you agree. You don’t want people to know that you’re thinking the exact same thing as I. You fear being labeled the same as I have been labeled. That is what separates us. I want my thoughts and ideas to be out there, no matter how controversial they may be.
However, as much as people hate me, no one ever sends me a mail saying how I have somehow enlightened them. It’s always the “negativity” off which people feed.
So, who is the real monster: Me? Or the rest of you?
This is what you should fear… you are what you should fear,
PS: I am expecting everyone to be cynical because I’m like that myself. I wouldn’t want it to be all roses because life isn’t like that.
Lame this is, I know. If you don’t like it – no deal – say that on my face.
This is a guest post by a fellow genius blogger, Arjit the The Virgin Author.
A ranter by profession (if it’s a word), I couldn’t turn down his request for spreading the “love” ;). Apparently his blog is not enough a platform for his rants :P.
So don’t feel shy to give in your comments. Keep the man happy. Maybe he’ll agree to do a few more, till my exams are done of course. I can so get used to this.
Thank you Arjit for being such a sport!
