Once upon a time…

September 23, 2014 • Bloggedy • Views: 2375

…before Facebook, before Myspace, before even Friendster, some of us kept blogs.  I have a lot to say about the sort of people who maintained blogs, and I’ll get to that in a minute.  But first we go back in time to the misnamed aughts: Facebook grew, capturing first the early-adopters and finally your grandmother, and like the Blockbusters and Borders of the brick and mortar world, made obsolete the personal blog.  Sometimes we handcoded in Notepad. We did neato things with CSS and terrible things with Javascript, like adding falling snow to our front pages. We took many, many selfies before they came to be called selfies. We were fucking pioneers of self-aggrandizement, I mean, entertainment and edification. Yes, we were the ones who printed our own newspapers (gossip sheets) in elementary school. Basically, we cannot shut up.

Anyway, sometimes what I want to say is too long for Facebook. Furthermore, do you know the phrase, Hell is other people’s comments? I half-coined that. So, here I don’t have to hear every one’s opinion about my latest cat photo.  The feedback I want is in the form of agreement and compliments, and I’ll ask for it (often).

Welcome to the new iteration of Heck’s Kitchen, aka, jennymillerdotcom.  I desperately hope you will enjoy it, or keep it to yourself.
