This weekend marks a milestone of sorts. (Well, not much of one, but one nonetheless.)
The one month anniversary of this blog will be celebrated this weekend. (I plan on getting the blog quite drunk. Anyone wanna volunteer to be the designated driver in case it needs a ride anywhere?)
But in all seriousness, I'm pleased with how things are going. I've found some great people to follow and add to my blog roll. And the comments left here are a great joy to see, and much appreciated. You guys/gals rock, and stuff.
It's funny how my direction changed in the first week of the blog. I envisioned blogging mostly about political events and throwing a lot of rants around in here. While there are a few of those types of posts, for the most part I've steered away from that and have posted pretty much utter nonsensical posts.
I've discovered a few things in the last month.
1) Light and fluffy posts seem to be favored over more serious posts. So I've leaned that way and the majority of the posts in here are light and fluffy, a lot like my award winning pancakes.
(Well, okay, maybe not quite like that. While my posts may be described as light and fluffy affairs, I think my pancake making skills would be better put to use as boat anchors. Anyone who has ate any pancakes I've ever made will probably tell you their asses drag on the ground when walking away from the breakfast table. It's not a pretty sight)
2) As I've blog hopped I've seen a few posts touting the superiority of Wordpress over the Blogger platform. I'm in no position to dispute that. But I'm pleased with the Blogger platform and haven't had any issues using it. And.....
it's free, a cheapskate like me drools over free stuff, especially when it fills the requirements I have.
3) There are a lot of talented people who blog. My blogging efforts pale in comparison to the writing skills and story telling I've run across. Adding my blog to the web is an effort to balance out this phenomenon with the unskilled/untalented drivel I post. I'm that guy people can point at haughtily and they can say their blog is better than this one. And many of them would be spot on.
So in closing this train wreck of a post I want to thank you for taking the time to read this blog. Your perseverance in reading this drivel will be rewarded in your next life. If you're nutty enough to believe in reincarnation I can promise you, at the very least, you won't come back as a roll of toilet paper. My crystal ball is a little too murky to promise anything else. But hey, who wants to be a roll of toilet paper anyway? Nothing good happens to toilet paper.
Ciao for now, I'll leave the blog on for you.
