Basically WTF came into being in November of 2014. It was created to allow my previous website, Art of Fail, become the home to my art and still provide me a place to talk about the things in life that I see, the funny things I think of, etc. Basically WTF was named partially after a phrase I commonly used and partially because I saw an opportunity to make a long lasting joke with myself.
Basically WTF is life, basically. It’s all those, “what the fuck,” moments and all those happy moments. It’s growing up. It’s silly observations. It’s stress at work. It’s short stories and poetry. It’s home.
I have adopted the Interrobang (also called the interabang) as the symbol of Basically WTF. It seemed incredibly fitting as this nonstandard punctuation symbol is a mashup of a question and exclamation mark. It implies the inflection on the title of the website that I personally use. It is also to help this punctuation gain more visibility and to inform people of its informal existence. Embrace the interrobang. Embrace it.
