a few thoughts on being a blogger and smartazz
Point number one-blogs are not disappearing, but alot of bloggers I like have stopped. Some mess around with facebook, which has advantages---it is easier for the quick read and the quick comment. Which leads me to number 2.
Point number 2-Commenting should be easy, and on facebook it is. But dang, have some of you bloggers noticed how many hoops you have to jump through to comment? Um, are there really that many Russian spammers? I have had my share of Russian spammers, but I would suggest bloggers make it as easy as possible comment.
Point number 3-I do not want to be a boring blogger. But in 3 years and one month I have posted nearly 5000 times, and will soon use up all the memory alloted for blog number two (then I will open another). My advice to bloggers: TELL ALL. Go for it! And add pics! People around me are used to the fact that I will politely ask if I can blog pics of them doing utterly ordinary things with me with brings us to point 4
Point 4--If you know David Sederis, my hero, you realize he can take the ordinary and make it hilarious. He never does ANYTHING, yet he is the funniest writer out there. That is my goal. I deon't want to be a blogger who does interesting things and is a boring writer. I want to do nothing but be funny.
Point 5--even though I am a well known smart azz who tells nobody to take me seriously, unless I am goofing on REPUBLICANS and CONSERVATIVES, never take me seriously or pay any attention to what I say.
I have had my say about blogging. Spike the cat helped and Penny the beagle kept my feet warm.
