Today, the domain name was finally registered. And if you type it in your browser, you’re here on this website.
Sure, it’s not a big deal to most. It’s just a name.
But there are many unsaid benefits to getting yourself a domain name.
Search engines consider domain names priority over blogs without their own domain names. For a reasonable annual fee, this alone can justify the means.
The name is your branding. You’re at risk of being robbed of intellectual property. It’s too difficult to take that to court over. Your preventive measures to protect your own work is important. Buying a domain establishes a presence among other brands.
Names are convenient. If you tell someone to visit Take That, Stupid People, won’t they automatically assume it’s takethatstupidpeople.com 90% of the time? Yes. They will.
Domains are worth it. The statistical benefits of having a .com domain name assure exponential growth for anyone looking to profit from a website.
True Blogging refers to the maturing stages of blogs and bloggers. It is very possible to go the inverse way, if you allow it. Different groups and ages respond subjectively to various stages of writing. I think the biggest difference between blogging for a living and blogging for fun is the fun part. It becomes work once you’re dependent on your blog to eat and sleep. So, if you enjoy blogging, don’t do it professionally. Just be happy you can get your writing published.
I used to write very informally, primarily due to being pissed off or tired, but styles change with time. I still get pissed off and tired, so that style hasn’t subsided.
Some people respond better to ACTION-PACKED writing with tons of EXTREME verbs, ADVENTUROUS nouns and AWESOME adjectives. These are usually visually-oriented people, so pictures are always popular. As a cartoonist, I should take advantage of this more, but I’m not a conventional artist.
Take That, Stupid People started off as a ranting blog where I would write about things that are considerably stupid to the general public. Most of which happened to be American.
I’ll get more rants up soon. There’s always politics and celebrity news to complain about.
Over time, most blogs switch from creativity mode to auto-pilot and start posting lower quality content than they used to due to the fan base and desire to attract an even wider audience.
Blogging is easy to screw up. Your entire following could disappear one day, or you could become the biggest thing online overnight. The fact of the matter is that people who aren’t careful put themselves in a vulnerable position.
Being careful about what you say does
n’t mean you have to censor yourself. Just don’t infringe on anyone’s rights.
People want to see what they like. It doesn’t matter who you are because people will like you for what you do on the internet, not who you are, unless you’re famous.
As many have heard, the murder of Michael Brown did not result in any charges against the cop who did the shooting. This is widely known as the Ferguson case.
Like many recent popular news article, the topic is police brutality. People are angry, so the government tries to control the crowds, and so on. This is obviously no coincidence.
These white officers are making themselves notorious for being the world’s biggest racists and abusers of power. The true corruption lies within the police departments that tolerate and often encourage this corruption.
Whenever a cop attempts to expose the bad, he gets laid off. When a cop wrongly shoots someone, the police department backs the officer up to the end. There is obviously a totalitarian regime in plant here.
What is totalitarianism? If you really don’t know, Google it and come back.
Totalitarianism can be recognized by a few primary details:
1. Fear of police
2. Control of public and private life
3. State Consistently Monitoring You
I don’t know about you, but everyone I know tries to avoid the police, even when they’re not doing anything particularly illegal. It really does suck that racism is still something to fear in the 21st century. The popo (police for those who don’t know) is the dominant source of violent racism.
There are some smaller police departments and non-US officers that haven’t been corrupted yet, but there aren’t enough.
You are being controlled. Your public life and private life have been defined by your country’s government. You might even like the life you have, but you didn’t choose it at all. This is part of totalitarianism. You may not even realize how little control you really have.
Every camera is accessible by tech gurus. Even the one’s that aren’t on. There’s plenty of camcorders and street cameras to monitor life. There’s software for facial recognition. People leave all the work to the computers and at the comfort of a keyboard, they can see everywhere you go, and determine your next moves.
The United States is blinded. There aren’t too many people outside of the US who aren’t aware of the corruption going on. The corruption has reached far and wide. Every problem has been caused by separation and corruption.
Next step is to enforce martial laws into our cities in order to control the masses. People will willingly join their army out of fear, which is ironic. The country will go into a new world war, and many people will die.
Then, a new revolution will take place. The truth will be revealed, and then we all go home.
