Enjoy the Spam
This is a fairly short blog, but also a fun one. This is merely a reminder to all of you out there to take the time to enjoy some of the spam comments you get on your blog. No, really! I know if you have a kickass spam filter like Akismet doing its job, then you will never be forced to really even SEE the spam comments your blog gets. But, seriously, spam can be such fun. I even read my spam emails from time to time for the same reason. There’s something about them that always gives me a chuckle.
Pimpin’ Ain’t Easy
Ahhh yes. My blog just keeps getting all kinds of classy. Before I get into this blog, though, I should explain my absence. I had my finals in my classes over the weekend, followed by fairly horrible couple of days. Long story short, I am now an ice cream man who can’t sell ice cream. My cart died. I lost hundreds of dollars in product. *Sigh* I’m not overly upset, just extremely disappointed. Moving on…
So, this blog is all about pimping out your blog for increased traffic. Most people are better at doing this than I am. Okay, if I’m being honest, mine is one of the most poorly pimped blogs I know. I also really don’t try, which is why I have been a little amused by the times when I accidentally succeeded. So, through these successes, I’ve actually learned a thing or two.
I slept for four hours last night. On the one hand, that sucks. On the other hand, that is the best night sleep I’ve had in a week. My sleep cycle is a challenge since moving to the couch. Some days, I take the kids to school, come home, and collapse into one of their beds, other days I’m not so lucky. But there are fewer and fewer beds I can collapse into these days. You see, I’ve got even more people living with me now.
I have mentioned on numerous occasions that this is not my first blog. When I mention this, I usually am referring to my most recent foray into blogging on a fantasy sports website. In truth, I have been blogging since long before there was a name for this thing we do on here. My first blog launched in 1994 under the name “The Only Alternative.”
Okay… consider this the relaunch of my participation in Theme Thursdays. Don’t call it a comeback. Although, mama DID in fact say knock you out. So, as instructed, I’m going to knock you out. (Those last two sentences are what LL Cool J would sound like if he were an uncool paralegal or something) So, this Thursday’s theme is to create an acrostic poem. In other words, one of those horrible annoying things you were supposed to do in school where the first letters of each line make words. The idea is to make something so bad, it’s good. We learned this sort of thinking from hipsters. So, without further ado… here is my nerdy take on the acrostic poem.
There’s a blog title for ya! I know. Take a moment and soak it in. Because, as a self-professed nerd, that statement is almost as controversial as a Democrat declaring the need for a tax cut for the wealthiest 10%. So, yeah. There it is, I said it. Star Wars ruined my life. I mean, it’s still the greatest film franchise of all time, but it also ruined my life. First, though, a quick apology before launching into this blog.
