Quora is the website of all sites for the stupidest fucking questions on the planet, but in the most hysterical way. I started a few years back just to get ideas for my own writing and man, it’s like crack.

I’ve told myself over and over again to break free but I didn’t. I couldn’t. It’s impossible. The worst is hours upon hours go by and I’m left wondering, Where did the day go? How have I accomplished nothing?

Quora.

Then, roughly a month ago I decided I really needed to get my shit together and start marketing, being more social on social media and set up shop to sell digital prints of my artwork. I’m also in the process of launching The Write Place, not to mention tis’ the season for outdoor art markets and gardening. I’m really strapped on time. A part of this plan is absolutely no Quora. None. I signed out, cleared my browser history, and pushed all temptation of answering an idiotic question out of my mind.

I made it an entire week.

BUT.

Then this happened. I received this email from Quora. Those fucking fuckers.

Of course I clicked the learn more link. FML. It’s like somehow Quora knew my plan to shut them out of my life and were like, No way. WE. WILL. DRAG. YOU. BACK.

Also, I just followed the Medium section. Thanks for sharing the link :)
