Once again, I'd like to thank those you who've bothered to leave such kind and encouraging comments. Without your feedback the blog wouldn't have lasted three months.
Unfortunately, there's a relatively new side to the feedback [mostly via email]. Seems there are a few folks who have nothing better to do than mock me for my grammatical and factual lapses. Thanks ya'll for making me feel like I shouldn't bother to write anything at all. If that was your initial plan, it worked.
And there are several other new problems as well....fellow bloggers who post my vinyl rips as their own "discoveries" [totally lame], the stalker who keeps changing his online identity but always gets around to wanting a "date" [creepy]....and perhaps a special mention should go out to the idiot who for some unknown reason faults me because some of the records I've posted are worth a good bit of cash [how I spend my money is none of your business].
Oh yeah, there's also the person who implied that I'm ungenerous [after posting thousands of dollars worth of rare-ish 45s] because I made a joke about sending in $5 for instructions on how to fix skips. You can fuck off.
In short, a small number of people have succeeded in making my "blogging experience" much less fun this year. In fact, I'm at an impasse. How do I continue? Basically I've just been going through the motions for the last couple of months.
And that's the most serious problem of all, 'cause this whole house of cards is built solely on my enthusiasm. Once that's gone, there's absolutely no point in continuing. All that's left to do is hit delete.
There ya have it. I'm unhappy with the way things are going. In particular I dislike the idea that I simply provide rare vinyl rips for other, more "fabulous", blogs.
