For the second time in a few months, my email account has been blocked (from my access) and hacked. It cost me time and money (too much on both counts) to get it fixed.
It got me to thinking, enough is enough. A few years ago, I canned the internet at home and went without for six months … and I didn’t miss it.
This time, I’m not getting rid of the internet (OK I do have to check the lottery numbers), but I am putting a few things on ice (preferably Scotch, bourbon or some such), starting with Twitter (I gave up Facebook years ago and don’t miss it a jot) and this blog.
It’s been a bit of fun along the way, but I’m at that stage in life where I should be doing shit that’s less like work and more like the things I’ve been writing about.
It’s been a tough gig sometimes … I get very few comments or reactions (thanks to those who did take the time) and not so much as one offering of a contribution, maybe all tell-tale signs that what I’m writing isn’t of that much interest other than to me … and support from just a few friends in promoting it … thanks.
Thanks for reading the ramblings of a sometimes grumpy man … maybe down the track we’ll meet again on this site. Who knows?
Anyway, that’s it. I’m going for a drink. See ya.
ME IN A NUTSHELL
- G’day, I’m Michael and I have two fantastic grown-up kids. I’m a jeans and singlet/T-shirt, cowboy boot, tattoos sort of fella, who knows a bit about this and sometimes a lot about that. I'll have a crack at most things, although having a relationship? ... well that ship has sailed. I'm past my use-by date anyway, so I'm gonna make it all about me and surviving life as I know it ... or make it.
