As Elegant Harridan said here, media is changing. We will be changing along with it.
Many of my favorite writers, or bloggers, are taking to YouTube or other similar places and replacing their writings with video presentations. I have to say I like it. I like it a lot; so much so that only rarely will you see long form posts on Bloody Fissures anymore.
What I’ve discovered, even in my own writing and that of the others who contribute here, is that too many words are being used. Gratuitously. It happens to almost everyone. Even the writers who I’ve followed for a long time do it. Their words aren’t necessarily on the page to describe or inform; they’re there to let people know of their writing prowess. And this irritates me.
I go back and read some of the things I’ve written myself and yes, I’m annoyed. Just too many fucking words.
So as far as the direction BF will go, we will concentrate on sharing the genius of those who create either videos or static images which are meaningful. We may even create some of our own. One or two of us may still utilize long form writing skillz to share thoughts, but most of what will be offered here will be in motion or pictures.
Welcome to Bloody Fissures!
