I am writing this post under the category of other, why? Well, simple, I think it is interesting. We here write posts on various things across the internet. Some of us write on many sites and some on just a few, like me. But all in all, we enjoy writing what we write. Whether it is a poem, short story or just a random post about whatever. This thought came to my mind and I thought I would share it here. When I come to a site like this I check out the posts. Mainly the title catches my eye and then I will start reading it. Not all posts hold my interest, as I am sure not all my posts will hold others interests.
But I find that it is all a random act. It all depends on the mood we are in at the moment we log in to any given site. So a post that might seem interesting today might not be what I am looking to read tomorrow, or even 10 minutes from now. So it is all random. That’s how I see it. I don’t think it is a fully conscious choice to just pick a post to read. I think it is a random consciousness that selects what we will be reading at one particular moment. Maybe that is just me, maybe I am wired that way. I don’t know. But I feel others are the same way.
In the grand scheme of things, does it matter how we select a post to read? I doubt it. Now what I am talking about here is more of a leisure thing. it’s not the same if we were searching for a particular topic for a certain purpose. That is deliberate. So, in our spare time coming here or any site, we basically scope the site and randomly select something to read. Like a trigger inside our heads. Then the conscious bell goes off and it says, “yeah, read that one.”
Take this post for instance. Does this have any real subject matter that really means something to someone? Probably not. But who knows. Someone might decided that this is something they find interesting and want to read. Then maybe respond to. Like a roulette wheel what spins, we don’t know where that little metal ball is going to land. And if that little metal balls happens to land on my post, well then I feel lucky.
