I really tried. I didn't want to be "that guy," the one that always sees the glass half full. I even decided to let my domain, voiceofdoomandgloom.com, lapse. But, I turned on auto-renew today because I do see the glass half full, even empty sometimes. I guess it's just my nature.
It's not that I'm not grateful for my good fortune. While I think I did a good job for my employers and clients, I am also aware that I've been very lucky.
But, I see so much that I don't understand about our culture and our lifestyle. We seem to be determined to ruin all the good things we've developed and replace them with meanness, intolerance, fear and a lack of appreciation for intelligence and expertise.
So, expect the ratio of rants to articles about indie-publishing to change.
You've been warned! 😀
