Observations While Screaming No

People I know are like "don't you want to get out, go to town, maybe see people or something, don't you get cabin fever staying home all the time, I would go stir crazy if I didn't get out at least once a day or so, and so on and so forth..."

And I'm like "no"

It is not that I dislike people, really, and everyone knows in today's world you have to go to the store to buy everything, but it does not make me want to, or like it.  I do not even like to take deliveries of things I have ordered, because I just do not want to be disturbed.  People disturb me, because they can not help themselves, and I have to be pleasant, because it is the fastest way to get them on their way without later repercussions.

I do not like interacting with people much, not exactly anti-social, just not really keen on trying to act pleasant to people all the time.  I like my place here, where I am secluded from all the drama and activity of ordinary people living ordinary lives.  Here I have everything I ever needed, well except for the stuff we need, but most of that can be obtained online.  Sure we have to buy food once in a while, but as the farm gets in better state, that will be less and less I am sure.  If I had a good oven I would need stores even less.  Still you have to take delivery of packages, or at least you should, unlike the mail, I can not really let it sit in the box for a week and get it when I feel like it.  The package is exposed to the elements, and the contents might be susceptible to exposure, so I have to receive packages, not so much with the mail.

Today I have to shovel the driveway, because I am expecting a package, and the driver usually wants to drive in the driveway, so I have that to do today as well.  Why do I not shovel the driveway, well I do not have a vehicle, and I do not really care if people can get in or out of my driveway, so yea, today I have to do that, because I ordered something.  Why do I do this to myself.

I mean if I really want such interactions I can go onto the interweb and see where Bobby Sue's cat just had kittens, and Billy Joe went to dinner with her family and it was a good dinner, but her aunt Lilly was a little too drunk and tipped over the water jug and she got her new dress wet or some such thing.  I don't need it, thank you, but if I do, I am sure there will never be a lack of supply of drama for me to entertain myself with, and I do not even have to leave the comfort of my own home.

Oh how I love the internet, and how it has allowed me to be the miserable wretch I truly am, and no one knows the wiser because I never have to do or say anything, just sit back and observe.

Short About Blog Post

So yea I know this is not really not my normal post, but I am working to increase the subscription rate on my blogs, as well as decrease the bounce rate.  I have watched a couple of videos, but they really didn't have much information that was useful.

However this blog buffersocial really seems to have a good amount of useful information, as well as a unique product if you are interested in that as well.  Their post 7 Simple and Proven Tips to Increase Your Blog Subscribers, is well presented with lots of graphic elements and fairly good copy.  My only issue is that they include a slide in box, which I do not like, and the content seems more geared to being content for the purpose of getting you to their site, rather than because they are really creating original content.

As anyone that actually reads my blogs, I am not about getting people to read or subscribe to my blog, but that I am just creating content, and if you read it, thank you, but that is not why I published it.  Still, there is that I have enough vanity, or at least am trying to cultivate enough, that I would like to try to get subscribers to my blog post, and besides this would mean that they would know when I posted.

I am also looking at how I handle marketing space.  As most people know I have adsense ads on my blogs, but it is not really about making money, it is really because they offered it, and it seemed like a good idea.  One thing the adsense thing does is it gives me access to metrics, so I can see how well my blog is doing.  So far none of them have done all that well, but not that bad either.

Often I will also include various Amazon links, yes they are affiliate links, so yea if you were to purchase the products that were on my blog through those links, I would make a little money, but dam little, so it really doesn't matter that much.  I actually include them because I am referring to the product for some reason, and if you want to find out where to purchase them, well I have the link there for that reason.

I am soon going to try to host my blog on a server (shared server) so that it has its own domain, but that will have to wait until I can afford the domain and server cost, so do not hold your breath.

Well that about it for todays post, yea no graphics, no rants, no fancy shit, just a what is up kind of post, and my fingers hurt, so I am signing off, good night.
