Who will be the next emerging demographic to read HIPSTER RUNOFF?
Sometimes I get scared, scared that I can't stay relevant forever. Every day a new fan comes to my blog and reads it. Tweens grow up, search for self-awareness. Parents look for cool web content that gives them a perspective on the worldviews of their children. New fans 'stumble upon' HRO via tweet/facebooks/stumbling upon, etc. I wonder if with each new fan, HRO becomes a little bit less authentic.
Wonder if there is a 'new frontier' of readers who can be cultivated, converted into HRO loyalist. Fans who know how to chill. Readers who just want to be authentic.
Wonder if cats/kittens are the future of HRO readers.
Seems like they will be chill, and they can just mill around on top of their macbooks, vibing out, scrolling down the page, enjoying the blog for what it is--a blog.
So many ppl complain

So many questions/concerns/h8rs/<3rs
So many messages
Sometimes I just don't know who I'm supposed to be as a blog
If I can just be 'me'
or if u want me 2 be 'some1 else'
So many expectations
Wish I could just escape
become a chill cat
with an owner who blows dank smoke in my face to 'get me high'
It's not easy being a blog.
What is the future of HIPSTER RUNOFF?
Is HIPSTER RUNOFF 'going down the shitter'?
Has HIPSTER RUNOFF 'peaked'?
What do u want to see more/less of on HIPSTER RUNOFF?
Is the HRO commenting community 'O.O.C.'? (out of control)
Do u h8 Carles?
Should Carles 'pass on the torch' to a new, exciting, aspiring young blogger?
In the future, will humans stop reading HRO?
In the future, will cats start reading HRO?
