About Me



- jB (Nov 2016)
Anyone here because of the #ReplacetheKB Contest, I wrote a special intro post for you HERE

Back to the standard "about me" :

This thing was live for 9 months before I could think of anything of substance to write here. This is what I've come up with:

I like cake. It tastes really good. Better than vegetables.

I'd like to thank my 20 person writing staff for helping me out with that. We did it, guys!

In all seriousness (don't expect to see those 3 words show up on the blog often) I do not have a writing staff, all of the content (nonsense) you read here is j.Bowman generated. I started writing this blog in a time of great personal turmoil. I had become disallusioned with the world around me and I was consumed by revenge and the unwavering need to prove myself relevent in an ever-changing landscape.

I actually did it because and I suffer from insomnia and they don't show "Coach" or "Saved by the Bell" on TV from 3-5am anymore. Occasionally yes I do sleep, I'm not a robot (and if I am, I'm a very poorly designed one) but it is very infrequent and brief. I've had the problem for years though, so I'm kinda used to functioning like that. Also I thought, although it is more accurate, "j.Bowman perpetually naps" was not a very good blog title.

I very much appreciate you being here (on earth) as well as here (on the blog page) and I hope you enjoy reading it. Far too many people take far too many things seriously and I think that's shitty. I have been told by people that know me well (both of them) that this blog paints a pretty accurate picture as to what it is like to talk to me. So if you don't like the blog, let me know so I can take it personally and shut it down because of one persons opinion. That's it for now, maybe add more later. Contact info is at the bottom. I like hearing from you fine people and I will respond to any email sent (even you, disposed Saudi Arabian prince). Now I will leave you with some stats, and thanks for reading.

I will add to this when I feel like sharing.
