First things first-
I want attention. I want to be praised. I want fans. I want people to think I am so awesome. (Sarcasm ok?)
I have a celebrity complex. (don’t we all?)
And I have a writing style that borders on “ouch-that’s-so-harsh” and “im-gonna-have-you-killed-for-what-you-wrote”.
Yep. I’ve earned enough enemies online, and gained a few followers (and lost/gained friends) through what I write.
But hey. Writing to me is a passion. It’s fun. It’s liberating. (and seriously, I am really a good person in real life)
This blog was not created to be a “show-off” instrument or a piss off machinery.
I write because I can, and because I love to.
I started formally blogging way back in 2001 in Multiply, before that I had a Geocities and Angelfire page as well.
I then created Just BEing in Blogger.com (Blogspot), which contained most of my best articles (which I deleted).
Then came Just BEing v.2 here in WordPress, which archived contents from version 1. But, I also deleted that as well.
Hopefully this latest incarnation will last long enough until Chinese is the new universal language.
And yes you will be offended if you don’t understand sarcasm. Oh, and thanks for visiting!
