Blogs originally had a purpose when the few people who had them actually had exciting and informative things to say. These blogs still exist and are pretty enjoyable to read, however, the advent of cheap hosting and drag and drop website builders has changed this once meaningful application into utter defecation, allowing everyday boring people like me to write about their lives, industry and interests while wrongly believing that the people reading them should care.
Welcome to my Blog!
