I’ve had this blog for less than 24 hours and it’s already eaten a post. This pretty well sums up my relationship with the internet; I like it, but I know it isn’t my friend, and does not have my interests at heart. When all is said and done, it’s just a machine, a beautiful and sometimes dangerous one, which is literally incapable of caring about any individual participant. But it comes with Team Fortress 2 and relatively free porn, so it’s not all bad news.
But I get ahead of myself. Hello.
The tag line at the top of the page pretty well boils down my intentions here. Currently, I am not a writer, at least not professionally, and that is something that I am looking to change. Research on this end indicates that in this day and age, a writer’s responsibility for marketing themselves on the internet is pretty much theirs and theirs alone. What you see here, the Mandatory Minimum Presence, is my first attempt to get back into something resembling social media after burning my Facebook account (long story). As of now, there is little to see here, and I’m still not 100% sure what I should be posting, but in time this will flesh out more. There is also a Twitter account (@PTKrieg) which I may have already messed up (see first paragraph). Oh well.
