WordPress appears to have this new, odd feature of adding links to the bottom of posts. These links are supposed to be relevant, related, or in some way of interest to anyone reading the post. That remains to be seen. In theory it ought to do that improve-traffic thing, but that is a mixed blessing.
I don’t know how these other bloggers will feel about being linked to me (surprise!), but at least I’ve read a few things I wouldn’t have otherwise. Take, for instance, this. This blogger writes that a decent person wouldn’t want to be a writer or artist…well, go read it in context before you jump to any conclusions (lest you get too wet swimming back). But there’s a point–shouldn’t decent people get a real job?
I don’t know. Maybe being decent is overrated. And what exactly is a real job? I don’t know, but this blogger may well be spot on. What is decent about spending your life making stuff up when real people out there need real things like food, medicine, and shelter? Now, I happen to have a “real” job. I don’t get paid to spend my days wrapped blissfully in my own world. Oh well.
But I would if I could.
Maybe this means I’m as selfish and self-centered as my dad’s second wife always said.
It would help if I knew what a real job was. Feel free to let me know.
