Why Should I Read Your Blog?
Hey, I get it. You and I are practically strangers right now. All you know about me is the little blurb I put on my “About Me” on the right hand side of my blog.
Check it out if you haven’t already, I’ll wait…
…oh! Done already? Cool…Let’s go on!
I know it’s short, but I decided instead of doing a lengthy “About Me” section, I would challenge myself to write a blog once a day every day for the next 30 days to give you an insight into my character. That has to be the best way to introduce myself and what I’m all about.
For example, did you know that I divide my home time between a boat and a van? Pretty cool huh? Neither of them are very nice or anything, I’m practically living in squalor, but the money savings can’t be beat.
Mini Blog Rant #1
You see, I used to pay a ton in rent to live in the city I’m currently in, but to be honest, that sucked. Each rent check was like wadding up all the money in my wallet and setting it on fire.
I can’t think of a worse way to lose money.
So this blog is an intro to all things Sparky. I like simple living, taking photographs, camping, and trying to find ways to make passive income.
I also have a love/ hate relationship with cooking.
I loved it when it was a hobby, I hated it when it was my full time job.
Mini Blog Rant #2
To be fair, I didn’t always hate it. It was only when people started making up food allergies that I really started to hate my life.
****Disclaimer: I’m not saying all food allergies are fake. What I am saying is that most of the people that go into restaurants demanding cooking processes get changed around to accommodate them are full of shit. From my experience, if you have a food allergy, you avoid the thing you’re allergic to and take no chances in cross contamination.
You shouldn’t go into a Red Lobster and expect them to serve you a shellfish free meal.
BECAUSE YOU WILL DIE
If you have a shellfish allergy, go somewhere that doesn’t serve shellfish at all, don’t put your life into the hands of someone working in the kitchen making 10 bucks an hour.
Cue Inappropriate Dating Analogy
I promise that is not the last time I’ll go off about food allergies, but I think today we’ll just take things slow. Think of it as a first date. You certainly don’t tell a new romantic interest that you are a complete crazy person on day 1.
You ease them into it.
You don’t tell them that your ideal weekend is sleeping until noon and eating cheese for breakfast until at least date 3.
By then they’re already invested and you are free to let it all out!
That’s how I’ll treat this blog.
