“The beginning is the most important part of the work.”
— Plato, The Republic
This is a testicle; partly shaved, fully neutered. It looks like a piece of Dolma with peach fuzz.
Actually, it’s a test. And an introduction.
This is my new blog; and you know, I’m not excited about it. I’m not one of those writers who go all gay about how hard writing is and how lonely writing is; expecting to find people who care enough to commiserate with me.
The reason I created this blog is because I’m going full-time freelance. And I have to have an online presence or I don’t exist. I mean, I don’t exist period. Without an online presence, I’m doubly non-existent; like the invisible Double Stuf Oreo of existentialism.
Here I am. Writing to add stuff to my portfolio and to gain experience with WordPress. Because so many employers request it. So I won’t complain. I might not like it, but I have to adapt. It’s the age of social media, online entrepreneurship, and fart porn. If you want money, if you want success, if you want to harass people more effectively, you go with things as they are. Some things you can’t fight.
In Electrik Walrus, I’ll write about my life, the books I’m reading, the beginning of my journey as a freelance writer, testicles, nuns, midget exhibits, and whatever the hell I want because this is my blog and I do what I want!
