In the interest of self preservation I am taking the following (somewhat radical) steps.
And you want to know what else? My blog is going to remain as it is (as I feel like posting in it). It won't be about sociology. It won't be about thinking critically. Jeez. Everything else in my world is about those things- why would I want a blog like that too? It will be meandering. It will sometimes be about knitting. It will be about my struggle to get through grad school. It will sometimes be a place for me to vent about politics or whatever. It will be about trying to have a life. And if my mother, sister, some fellow knitters, and a few good friends are the only people reading it, that is perfectly fine with me.
As a side note- I realized today (thank you, Reba) that I so miserable b/c I am not getting my own work done. Nothing makes me more miserable. So, part of why I am going to hide myself away for a while is to accomplish some stuff that means so much more to me than arguing on blogs.
- Comments are shut off. Email me instead if you have something to say about a post. This isn't directed at anyone person who might have commented, but I would like to try to keep the "mean spiritedness" from some other blogs from invading my own little blog. I'll miss most of the comments. I really will. But, they must go.
- If you are an especially mean person- mean to other people for no reason, either on a blog or not on a blog, I am going to steer clear of you. My choice is not to have that crap in my life. So, if you have a blog that attracts mean comments, I probably won't be reading it any more. I used to think pretentiousness drove me crazy- now meanness might be taking its place. Now there is nothing like someone being mean to make themselves feel better to drive me up the freakin' wall. This has been brewing for a long time online and offline. Recent events are only the straw that broke my little blog's back.
- I'm just going to be getting some serious work done- okay? And it is going to lead to some publishing so that I can finish, get a job and get the hell out of here. I am going to stay far away from drama, further away than ever before. And I'll be much, much happier.
