I was thinking of how internally satisfying it would be to make money off writing stuff on the internet for a living. It's actually funny how my thought process started as an internal rant against Twitter for forcing people to express themselves completely and unambiguously in 140 characters. Of course, it has benefits in being direct to the point and saving storage space. But with all the Twitter drama I encounter on a regular basis, it's obvious that it's only too easy to make a fool of yourself on social media outlets such as Bacefook and Twitter.

Then I wondered whether I could possibly make something out of writing my rants on some sort of blog as a response to all the material and trends on the breeding place of mass-idiocy on the internet, known as social media. Of course, I would never intend for it to appeal to the sort of masses who use such websites. I'd probably have it cater more to the loner and nerdy sort of people. I even thought of calling it "Word of the Nerd" or something! Only it seems too simple that someone probably already thought of it. And as easy as it is to say something short and silly on Tumblr, it's probably even easier to say something wrong in a long blog that would trigger someone's offense. For example, as soon as I touch the topic of religion, it would be foolish not to expect hate responses from one or both arguing parties.

Then again, it has been something I've enjoyed doing since 2009. Maybe I'll just do a few posts eitherway on some place like my Blogspot and see how it goes?

This seems like a great idea! I never really had the courage to even consider doing things like that, and you definatly have the charisma and spunk to do so, Ctree! Also, I miss you on fig. I know you probably won't be coming back, but I still miss you, and I'd like to talk to you at length sometime! :D

Uh... yeah. That's all I have to say. I might even make a top 10 villain list of all time and post it on my own bio to see how it goes!

Thanks~

I suppose I haven't considered that such things take courage to do. Maybe *confidence* to broadcast your thoughts is something one needs, but I suppose such attitude has always been innate for me. It's not always a good thing though. Sometimes I'm *too* confident and I end up embarrassing myself by saying something I realize two seconds later is stupid. Also, I just Googled what "spunk" means, since it's not a common word to use where I live. Hooray~

You can always leave messages or PMs if you want to talk. I usually reply at some point; it's just that I take a bit of time sometimes because work usually takes so much of my time that I barely have the energy to craft my reply. I'm not sure if it's obvious, but I do a lot of editing before I submit things like comments and PMs. For example, what appears as a casual sentence you're reading now actually took me a bit of time to write out since I keep stopping and thinking of what to say next. Obviously, an advantage of communicating online is that people don't see your awkward pauses and "uh"s. Both of these are quite common when I speak verbally, yet there's barely a trace on my writing.

A top ten villain list might be interesting. I would suggest that you stick to a particular genre instead of going all out, since you're bound to miss out on some, despite all your efforts.
