Lately I’ve felt I’ve outgrown the need for “House of Goonery.” Maybe it’s because I am older, more jaded, or what have you that I feel I’ve moved beyond the need for a space, or rather a title for a space, which points out my quirks to readers rather than allowing those quirks to shine through on their own.
My one overriding goal with this forum is to create a space where serious debate can occur, but one where humor is always near the surface of the conversation. In other words, a place where serious topics can be discussed while maintaining my sense of humor.
It’s also been something of a dream of mine to have some of my content shared far and wide anf have it taken seriously by all who read it.
People tend to take content serious if it originates from a serious sounding site, be it a blog or other news site.
“The House of Goonery” doesn’t easily lend itself to a serious conversation or site. In all honesty, I get frustrated with this forum, not because of the services offered, but because of how I’ve handled this platform in regards to the disimination of my ideas.
I have to wonder, is my writing style, my tendency towards self-depreciation as humor off-putting to some? Or do I just suck as a writer?
Betting it’s the writer suckage.
I doubt seriously any of this will happen, especially the shared widely part.
Still, weirder things have happened, right?
