I Asked For It

The blog link said "I will fucking tear you apart". And the temptation to submit my blog for review at this site was overwhelming. That was five months ago.

And finally, my blog has been reviewed at "Ask and Ye Shall Receive". The reviewer thought my writing was "reasonably well" although in serious need of "some harsh editing", "more paragraph breaks" and fewer posts about self. My blog title was subjected to severe criticism, everything from the word "quirky" to use of an exclamation mark at the end! (There I did it again.) The blog title, "Quirky alone...and happy!", came off as an attempt to hide underlying misery and bitterness at being single! (Wow, was I THAT obvious?!? ;-)) And the reviewer "pretended not to see the poetry". (I tell you, they really "fucking tear you apart"). But apart from that I was spared the horrors they inflict on most bloggers who dare to submit their blogs for review. The reviewer took out time to direct my attention on how I could improve this blog and my writing. Thank you for reviewing my blog, 'Forcemeat The Clown'.

Check it out here.
