“Why do you need a website?“
OK, how do you answer that?
“Well everyone else has one…”
“Oh, and if everyone jumped off the Erskine Bridge, you’d follow them?“
“Because it’s cool…” (which it isn’t, so don’t ever use this answer)
“You think so? it just means you can’t get a real life“
And so it goes (which is a wonderful Billy Joel song) basically your only available answer is to say – “You just don’t understand it…”
But it does get you thinking, why do I need to do this? The answer to that is simple – I don’t need to. I could stop tomorrow, no really I could…
So the question is almost back to the original – Why do I have a website?
Well it started as an area where I would dump stuff, where I experimented with bits and bobs for other websites, then it started to grow. The main problem is updating. I tend to do things in mad rushes, nothing for weeks, then a whole slew of stuff in a couple of days…
It is an outlet, as with everyone, I have ideas, thoughts, emotions running amok. Some I commit to this site, others I let wander around in my head for a while, most disappear into some dusty corner or other, only to re-appear at odd intervals.
So what you get here is just what’s in my head, nothing amazingly profound, well not usually, and nothing to extreme, in fact I’m ecstatic that you’ve read this far – thank you very much.
Anyway, I only need one thing in my life, and she knows who she is.
