Blogging Retrospective

October 11th, 2006

I still can’t sleep, I still want things to be better, and I still continue to blog or add to Muschamp.ca sporadically. I just went through a whole bunch of posts and although there is a lot of crap and confusing rambles and cryptic references it all meant something to me. It also probably means something to people who know me.

This is blog posting four hundred and something. WordPress when it numbers blog postings doesn’t reuse numbers for posts that are deleted or that remain unpublished. According to my ‘dashboard’ I have 391 posts, this one when published will be the three hundred and ninety second I imagine.

Although I am conscious that I am writing for my future boss, I’m also writing for myself.

“Above all else to thine own self be true.”

I actually try to be truthful with everyone, I think I may be too honest, which has cost me dearly. Assuming my future boss is reading this I hope he or she has a sense of humor and some understanding and compassion.

I’m no longer sure where I’m going with this, which is both one of the appeals and one of the problems with blogging. Although I could go back and edit heavily even delete a bunch of postings, I’m extremely reluctant to do so. Eventually I wanted certain information to become common knowledge, though I would have personally preferred it not to be. What I want wasn’t of much consideration to some.

A look back at my very first undeleted post is revealing, the first posting in a given category is also revealing, even the existence of certain categories surprises even me. I never set out to write or do certain things. One thing lead to another and momentum builds in one direction, circumstances dictate or indicate or suggest… Caution and quality control suffers due to pressure, stress, and other issues…

There is useful information on Muskblog. There are amusing anecdotes. There is a whole lot of truth which is hopefully appreciated. I just wish certain people could see the best instead of thinking the worst.

A lot of people arrive at my website via one search engine or another and some of the phrases they enter into the search engines is a source of amusement, confusion, and insight. One thing this means is I don’t control which information people see first. One person’s complaint is another person’s hobby, perhaps some of my Sauder MBA classmates will have a change of heart eventually…

I try to direct new blog readers to the best or at least the most popular blog postings, even if I am trying unsuccessfully to live down some of the more popular blog postings. In addition to wanting things to be better, I wouldn’t mind if some of my loyal readers left a comment now and again. I’m tired of writing things no one replies to.

    I decided to remove the Most Popular Postings plugin for the time being. It has some flaws and I’m tired of seeing both the mistakes and the same stupid post being the most popular.

    I still don’t understand and I still haven’t gotten better. I still don’t even have a job. To say I’m feeling unwanted would be an understatement. It doesn’t appear any of my former classmates at the Sauder School of Business can be bothered to take the time to reply to my emails.

    People have moved on, they left me behind a broken wreck, like some elite military unit leaving behind the wounded so they won’t slow them down. What is one person’s life anyway?

    I can’t blog, I’m too honest, far too honest. Random strangers write me about a variety of topics, they seem to believe what I write. Why can’t my ‘friends’ believe me?

    People still arrive at Muschamp.ca via Google, I stopped watching my logs for a while and I almost missed someone apologizing to me. Again random people on the internet apologize but…

    The reason for this comment is people are searching the web for “Muskblog” and someone actually registered http://www.muskblog.com! Not me, I never even gave much thought to naming my blog, I had to be repeatedly encouraged to write, now I have volumes of crap no one wants to read or believe.

    Maybe I could sue them, I’m not one for lawsuits. I’d prefer to avoid problems or arguments, but I’m tired of being ignored, mistreated, maligned, etc. etc.
