We were talking about blogs/blogging, and about why people start up their own blog. I told my friend what I've mentioned on here before - that I started blogging after following The Plashing Vole's excellent effort, that my blog gave me some Creative Writing exercise (handy for my course), that it was all just a bit of fun, and I wouldn't post about politics and heayweight stuff.
But something is weighing on my mind. Recently, as you regular readers will know, I've been criticising idiotic letters written into my local paper. These letters have concerned politics, so I've already broken that vow about blogging about political stuff. I've really enjoyed doing this, and I know when I hear the thud of the paper landing on the doormat soon I'll be rushing down and scanning through the letters page once again.
But I can't help thinking that this was never what my blog was meant to be. I try and make those entries humorous, and I hope you realise that I'm doing these entries light-heartedly and not stabbing the keyboard violently and screaming "SCREW YOU SLARK!" throughout.
I guess I'm just worried that this stuff might take over my blog, and before long I'll be doing this every day. Of course what would happen then is that the happy-clappy, fun, light-hearted nature of my blog will be taken over my long-winded rantings.
SO, I feel I have a choice. Either I carry on like this, and run the risk of that happening, OR I set up a new blog. Call it "Letters from Hell" or something and take my smarky comments off to there, and leave this blog free for random musings, youtube videos and various stuff.
And this is where you come in. If you're a regular reader, what do you think? Would you be interested in a separate blog filled with all this stuff? Or do you think I should carry on doing it on here? Or maybe not do it at all? All comments welcome, because it's on my mind.
