My original title for this draft was, “Well, I’m back, like the cockroach in your kitchen you thought you killed”. But then I thought sounds like a cry for sympathy. Then I wrote ‘Well, I’m back”, cringed and started closing my laptop lid. But then I thought, why give up when I have ChatGPT?
ChatGPT gave me many many titles. Some were plain weird, like “The Blogfather Returns: A Story of Family, Honor, and HTML”. Why did I use ChatGPT, ask ye writing purist? Because my new philosophy in life is, “When in doubt, use AI”. I added the last bit in the title though.
So, I’m back to this blog, after more than a brief hiatus when I tried to set up a fancy MyName.com author website. One day I threw a hissy fit and deleted it. Don’t ask me why. I don’t want to pay a therapist for 5 sessions to figure that out. I suspect it was because my inner troll started cringing every time I saw MyName.com, or maybe because of the pressure I felt to write in a “This is serious. People on your LinkedIn will read this” style.
If you’ve met me, you know it is very hard for me to take anything seriously, especially myself.
I re-opened this blog and saw I have 67 subscribers. I can’t for the life of me remember how I got > 5 followers, but coo!. You’ll be happy to know I’m back and totally committed to making an absolutely directionless, SEO proof, unmarketable blog about God knows what if he or she exists.
