Back in November 2003, my parents sent me a laptop. I had just been released from the DOC Half-Way House and was on Parole. I had an 8pm curfew. There were many lonely nights and I sat, looking out my window, over looking Pittsburgh's, "Garfield Ghetto," where I lived. So, when the laptop came, I'd never been on a computer and this was my escape. I crashed it twice but I learned all about it, the hard way. I learned about viruses and spyware on all the porn pages and the whole nasty lot. I couldn't see shit and typed in all caps. People kept saying, "Why are you yelling," to which I told them, they were hearing things, crazy bastards!
How I found blogger was kinda another story. My boss,
Todd Singleton, owner and Executive Chef of the Liberty St.Cafe', where I worked as Manager, had a blog for his restaurant. Check out the menu on that page, wow!. I worked at this wonderful restaurant, he inherited me, when he bought the restaurant. I'd never even heard of a blog. But I had time to tinker and tool around so I happened to click on his blogger logo, you know, just to see. It was then that, it re-routed me to starting my own blog. I started Bitchin & Stuff and screwed it up, beyond repair at least three times. I wish I could've had the brains to back it all up, but nooooooooooo! I'd written a lot of stuff on there, soulful stuff and it was all gone. Ce qui sera, sera!
Many people have come and gone but one of my oldest blog relationships is with Mickelino/Frog with a Blog. I know it's going on two years, that I've known him But each and every one, on my sidebar, means something to me. I hope we have a long and loving relationship. A few that are no longer there, I have missed but I am so enjoying my circle of friend here and I thank you for being a friend.
How did you become a blogger??
