As so many vloggers and bloggers are in philosophical mode at this time of the year I thought, well, anyway, if it’s so en vogue to become all self-reflective and think about one’s own product’s future and development and maybe even think about plans and goals to achieve in the next 365 days … or so or something … why not go through the hassle myself as well?
So, yes I indeed did some thinkering. Not too much, mind you as I’m quite happy and content with my personal life and the state of this here bloggy. So no plans to change the basic direction anytime soon. Thar She Blows! will stay a Second Life blog first and foremost, respectively going back to being a Second Life blog, as I plan to spend more time in world and maybe even become active as a TrYC officer again. Yeah, maybe start a new race series, why not? And of course blog about it.
And more stories about general Second Life topics anyway. Not technical stuff like Inara and Hamlet are presenting us with, but more personal shit like riding and camping and shopping and prim-doodling stories.
Also the Free and Open Source and GNU/Linux world will be another top priority as I believe very strongly in it and think Linux is the perfect Operating System for Second Life computers. So no chance for you getting rid of one or the other Linux writeup in this blog.
Writing Orca @ the Movies movie reviews is something I enjoy very much and I feel I’m getting better at it. As well as the sporadic music report in my On Heavy Rotation and Greatest Rock Albums columns. Music is kinda huge part of my life so you gotta endure my musings about it. Or, you can just ignore that shit, as this is a blog where you have the free choice. 😉
A thing I absolutely hate is politics! There, I said it. But, as you know politics are love, politics are life. LOL. No, politics are rather important as we all are suffering the bad consequences of our so-called politicians’ and government’s bad decisions. We gotta stay informed and we have to think about politics, particularly geo-politics. It is fucking important! Our very lifes could depend on it. So I will write about politics from time to time, whenever I feel there is something stupid/sinister/evil cooking up. Something antihumane going on or when I see some right wing populists are gaining momentum and leverage I will speak up. Like it or not. It’s not something we can ignore.
Something Thar She Blows! is seriously lacking is reports and opinion pieces about feminism. Let me tell you why: It’s not that I’m not loyal to the real feminism but I kinda hate all modern feminists. They are a bunch of stupid, whiney, spoiled rotten SJW’s with no abilities to regard diverse views. They are of the very egoistical breed that demands immediate gratification. They are greedy without having the necessary philosphical foundation to stand on. I cannot concure with most of their worldviews, and try to stay away from them stupid bitches. Contrary to them I don’t think being a princess is your birthright but only you can turn yourself into a princess. And that demands some hard work, sorry to say.
I’d like to introduce more columns and topics to Thar She Blows! and I’ll do so when I get an idea or a creative bout. But in the moment I don’t have any fixed plans regarding any really new groundbreaking stuff. Will deal with shit when the time arrives.
So, that’s it basically about your hostess, editor and main contributor. Let’s talk about you for a moment now, shall we? You like or hate this blog, it stirs up feelings of love and/or rage in you, you feel it could be sooo much betterer if only … ya, if what? If your own opinion would be presented here as well, if you had the power to make your own opinion heard. Guess what, it’s all possible. It’s super easy to become a content creator, a co-blogger on Thar She Blows! I’m mentioning Thar She Blows! because this post is about that particular blog and it’s my main concern. Of course you can start your own blog, it’s as easy as becoming a mere co-blogger in this one. But you’d have to start at zero, build a following, a readership, create pageviews. Can you do that? It would mean publishing content regularly, creating stuff people would maybe like to read about or view your photos. If you have a very narrow field of interests and not nearly enough time to to publish your stuff regularly, then the co-blogger solution should be right up your alley.
This blog already has a small number of contributors, mostly really lazy ladies who also only wrote one or two pieces so far. But that’s okay. Better the story is out in the open than caught inside your pretty noggin forever! Every published story helps us all. And who knows, maybe you will discover what a nifty little thinkerer and writer you are and your one-time article awakened your apetite for more and you’ll start becoming more prolific. The world is your oyster.
So let me call for help again. I know I did it a couple times already, with little to no effect but in a new year’s post like this I guess is the perfect time to ask you to step forward and try your hand in writing. You don’t need to be a Hemingway or a J.K. Rowling, just be your glorious self and have something interesting to say. Maybe you only have one story in you. That’s ok, even more than ok. We both will feel much better after you published it and set it free out in the open. Just contact me with your ideas. Also with ideas and requests you have for me. Want me to interview you, have a looksie at your new house, spaceship, boat, sexbed, whatever?
So in conclusion, and to bring this to an end, let me just state that Thar She Blows! won’t change direction but hopefully become more focussed and nutritious without losing its lighthearted sex appeal. And let’s all hope it will change into more of a concerted effort, the work of a group.
Welcome to 2017, the future starts with You!
