Garbage on the Internet · 30 July 2022

I must apologize. I am sorry for putting out so much garbage on the internet.

I know that garbage is in the eye of the beholder, but sometimes I wonder if my writing is garbage to everybody. Still, even though I wonder about the quality of my writing, I will continue to put more of it out there. Writing that is. Or garbage if that is the way you see it. And like I said, I am sorry for putting so much of it out there.

Of course, I must not think all of my writing is garbage, or I would not put it out there. Probably. Then again, I am not sure. After all, I do have twenty (and counting) digital books available on Amazon. Which amazes me in and of itself. Not that I have twenty books. But that nobody has bought any of those twenty books. (Which is not strictly true. I have actually sold a couple copies of at least one of my books.)

Okay. I actually am amazed that I have twenty books out there. I am not impressed with myself, but I am amazed that I have finished those twenty books and put them out there for people to see. And hopefully, buy and read. And maybe even offer a review here and there. (Hint. Hint.)

I know. It is a bit of wishful thinking. But it is so much more than just wishful thinking. After all, wishful thinking was all I was doing way back when. Back when I was not doing any writing. Rather, not any meaningful writing. Which is not to say that my writing is meaningful. But back then, the consistency of my writing habits was not meaningful. Back then, it was wishful thinking that anybody would buy my books because I had no books out there.

Today, my wishful thinking is that people might actually buy my books (#ad) when I do not ever talk about them. Then again, I have mentioned my books in a few conversations and I have also mentioned them in an occasional blog post. But I suppose that is not enough. I suppose that I have to put a different type of garbage on the internet. I suppose that I might need to do some self-promotion from time to time.


If there is one thing that I am not good at, it is self-promotion. (By the way, if you thought I was going to say writing, you might think about your reading choices. But it would have been funny had I said it. At least to a couple of my readers, who surely thought I was going to say writing.)

Now where was I? Oh yes. Self-promotion.

I am not much of a self-promoter. I do not like to brag on myself. (As you might have noticed from the first paragraph of this blog post.) And I am not much of a social media guy. Which is where I would probably do most of my self-promotion. Which is also where there is already plenty of garbage. Most of which is not mine, by the way.

Well that is about it. Not much left to say. Not much of a conclusion either. Ah well.

I really do apologize for the garbage I have put out on the internet. I have fun writing it. And drawing it. But I still apologize. After all, there is plenty of garbage on the internet without me adding mine.
