Since my blog and l began our journey in September 2017 – we have changed our direction and style six distinct times. The period of time between now and my last update in August 2019 is riddled with changes both small and large, good, bad and horribly sad too. But that alone is the change of life and so how we view life and its topics will reflect differently within our words.
Scrappy 30th November 2003 – 12th January 2020 – RIP
When l began this journey my best friend Scrappy was a very large part of this blog and there are still traces of her within the pages of my posts and her memory will always live on here.
However, sadly in January 2020 our journey together stopped. She will always be missed greatly. Her departure admittedly even though l knew it was coming still knocked me back quite significantly hence why this update is in April and not the usual January.
In August 2019, my partner took horribly ill and she nearly died and this too changed my writing style to a leaning towards more philosophy and topical. Also, lest us not forget the current situation of the blog status here in April 2020 – the whole world is caught up in the throes and woes of a pandemic – a global concern – not just a life changer, but a history creator and maker. Life changes and so do the people within … change is part and parcel to the very fabric of our lives, it makes us who we are.
I believe that an About section is a really important part to the writer’s personality – it’s who you are, what you are about, what you believe in, what you write about – it’s as important to both the blogger/writer and their readership as the first meal of the day. An About section, like breakfast sets the reader or eater of content on their way through the day or through the pages and chapters of a written journal.
So, who am l, what is my blog about then?
An excellent question. I am a story teller – not a fictional writer of tales, but a reality writer of the stories that make up and have made up my life to date. Hence why my blog says ‘Storytelling my life for you’ – says a lot l think – don’t you? About who l am?
In addition to being a story teller, l am also a philosopher and a thinker, a topical writer and an occasional tall story writer – and yet even then, my so called ‘creative fiction’ is comprised on 75% reality. It’s not that l don’t write fiction, it is just that l tend to do that sparingly although l am more creative – fiction wise – with some of my poetry.
Push come to shove l would say my genre here is eclectism, diversity and variety entertainment and relatable content and that would be about right.
You can call me, Guy, Bloke or even use my real name – Rory. I sit on the spectrum of autism with my Asperger’s. I write about a number of different topics, mostly passions really, about my life, my relationship, my interests, mental health, environmental concerns, autism, gardening, conservation, composting and funny elements of life itself.
I’ll write in the style and stance that my mood sits in at the time so this could be comedy, spiritual, sensual and on occasion sexual, bawdy, cheeky, business orientated, Aspie, slap and tickle, controversial, opinionated, topical, emotional, philosophical, weird and quirky. Whatever takes my fancy. I love music and films, rhyming poetry, puzzles and games and so l have series dedicated to those as well.
However, the About section is a brief introduction only into a new writer or blogger that you have encountered and may wish to either follow, read or engage with – so on that note – l will take my leave and wish you well and thank you for stopping by, maybe you and l will chat soon.
If this is your first time to my blog, then hello to you, thanks for visiting, and perhaps you’ll stop by for a chat soon. Otherwise, have a great day and thanks for reading.
I try to update my about section as often as l can for a couple of reasons 1] My blog is always evolving and changing and 2] I am always evolving and changing! Life is about change isn’t it?
Many bloggers forget to update this section of their blog and yet whatever their field of expertise or their personal tastes their stance and style will change over time.
When we change direction, so too does our writing and our thinking, our emotions and personalities reflect different thoughts – so it stands to reason and in many ways more so if you host a reality blog of sorts that out About Introductions need refreshing.
