Thinking For YourselfThere is a plague on the internet. It’s full of bullshit.
There is a plague on the internet. It’s full of bullshit.
And the sad part, for me, is that I have contributed to it.
In my “daily blogging journey,” a lot of what I have written is complete garbage. No one should read it for value.
I am not proud of that. In fact, I am very cognizant of the negative consequences of what I am doing by putting out information on the internet. Whenever I publish anything, with my name on it, I run the risk of negative association.
Lots of people would not write because of that.
I write, regardless of that, because I find it as the only way to get energy in the morning. It is the best exercise I could find to start my day and something I could execute on consistently.
But for every positive comment I get on my writing, I likely get 5–10 people who at least see my post and form a judgement of me without getting to know me.
They see I write some post and immediately associate me with another group.
That is human nature. I do it too.
Just got me thinking about the delicacy that is the internet and how important it is to be real and genuine on it.
