After perusing the last couple weeks worth of posts, I'm thinking of (if you'll pardon the pun) shifting gears and taking a different route with this blog. There's even the option (though I'll still wait a few more months) of aborting this whole effort, due to the fact I know absolutely about promoting/marketing, which, as I've seen from other blog posts I've read, does play a key role in generating traffic, hence, a successful blog.
Perhaps I was being a bit delusional in thinking I could blog about being a truck driver, since, as has become apparent, many don't care about what a truck driver does (or endures) on a daily basis (if you want to know what many people think of truck drivers, just bring that topic up in conversation... chances are, most opinions will be negative). I'll admit, there are a lot of prime specimens of the low class lot that permeate this industry, but there are a few of the respectful professionals (myself being one) that get a bad rap because of the rest. I tried to carry this blog in a way to shed a little light that we're not all dirtbags.
I don't know what I expected from doing this blog... perhaps I was having delusions of grandeur. I really enjoyed writing when I was younger, at least I could find people to read it - and a select few I could count on to be honest... brutally honest. However, it's hard to gauge (amid all this technology) where you rate in your own writing abilities when your blog is posted online, then tweeted, only to have little to no feedback... other than the usual handful of friends & family that already read it.
So how can I shape this better?
A fond "farewell"?
