What will I find in this website?
I (and a gigantic team of world-class writers) will post whatever I (or any of out world-class writers) feel like posting. It can be a random thought, a message to someone, opinion, or something that I did or that happened to me. It very much depends on my current mood. It also sort of serves as a personal diary of mine, minus the darker inner thoughts.
What kind of self-centered prick would name his website like this?
It’s meant to be an ironic commentary on the enabling power of the web. Nowadays, any schmuck can pretend to be important by having his/her own website. Sorry if I offended anyone with my self-centeredness. Go away.
If you are Mexican, why isn’t this in Spanish?
Finally, a good question! This one I really struggled with back when it all started. While I (think I) can be (even) funnier / can make more jokes / handle slang better / make more obscure pop-culture references when writing in Spanish; I decided to write in English for the following reasons:
- Most of my friends and family who are native Spanish speakers understand English, while the reverse is not true.
- The overall population that has access to the Internet is more likely to speak English.
- I live in the U.S. so I can use the practice.
Why would anyone care about you and want to see any of this?
Obviously if you didn’t, you wouldn’t have made it this far.
More to come…
