Substance Trumps Pretty Packaging

I am tired of listening to the self righteous and indignant blabbermouths who rail on about the need for everything to look perfect. This is a blog. It is not up for an Academy Award- not now and probably not ever. I am not trying to wow you or anyone else with my cinematography. My focus is on the substance and not the superficial.

    Hi Jack,

    Great video! Keep your hat however you want, it’s you head, it’s your hat and it’s your deal. I can’t imagine someone telling you to turn your hat around … interesting. I’m 43 with long hair and the only person who seems to have an issue with it is my mother. Why? Because she’s my mother. Honestly, I don’t think about my hair too often.

    Yes packaging is nice, but I must say the best content and keepers are the ones with the least amount of fanfare I’ve seen. I’m too Italian and northern to not comment if I dig something. Some might even think I’m overboard, but hey, “I’m Elena and you’re not, be thankful for that” and just know that’s my genuine make up.

    I don’t get many comments at all and wonder what the heck I’m doing wrong, but the comments I do get are a blessing and kind. I just keep on keepin’ on and what will be, will be. I work very hard to focus on good content; I don’t always hit the mark, but in my heart I know I try, never wanting to give less than what I feel people deserve.

    Thanks so much for your take here … makes me feel better in some way! ;) So, you keep your hat the way you want, I’ll think about my hair more and get back to you. ;)

    Blue skies,

      Mothers are always good for keeping us in line or at least trying to. I am a fan of long hair, always wanted to grow mine out but that doesn’t work for me.

      Got a natural Jewfro that works much better when I keep it short.

      I tend not to pay a lot of attention to what people say to me. I am pretty good at nodding and smiling.

      Easier than fighting about stupid crap.

    You’re crazy! I’m 50, have long hair, and I’m a ditz only 1/2 of the time! I thought, “Where is he going with this?” I was so ready to fight! I love to play with the blog “packaging” because I get annoyed looking at the same thing all the time. That’s why I change my furniture around, too. Weekly.
