Truthful Tuesday — Odd Enjoyment

Frank, aka PCGuy, has published another one of his Truthful Tuesday posts, and this week Frank points out that it has been theorized that we are actually living in a computer simulation, and that nothing we experience is real. Hence, he wants to know…

What’s something that you thoroughly enjoy doing that others might find a bit odd? What makes it so enjoyable?

This is probably not a good audience to say this to, but my answer is blogging. My wife knows that I enjoy writing and she actually thinks I’m pretty good at it. But she believes that if I devoted the same amount of time I do to blogging to writing a novel, I’d be better off. She may be right, were it not for the fact that I have the attention span of a goldfish.

My kids think blogging is a total waste of time and that I should find something else to do with my time in retirement. “Like what?” I ask them. “Whatever,” they say.

Only a handful of friends — real world friends, that is — know about my blog and even fewer read it. None of them are bloggers and I’m sure they think it odd that I feel compelled to spend my days writing multiple posts.

Yet I will continue to blog, odd as that may seem to some.

    Well you’ve relieved my mind at least! No Fandango withdrawals please. There’s one person who knows I blog and what it actually means in my real life. She is very supportive too. My family knows I do it, but they consider it another of “Mel’s weird hobbies” and I doubt (hope?) they never read it. I don’t need the negativity bleeding over into my virtual life thanks. I think you do a splendid job for all that’s worth. Keep it up sir!

    Good answer. The creative inspiration plus instant feedback keeps me motivated. And as you say, we can flit from topic to topic like butterflies 🦋

    The blogging platform isn’t as judgemental as some social media

    There are much worse things you could do. I am not only an odd blogger but a crazy cat lady of three! Ha, ha!
