Taking Names

This blogging thing is kind of tough. No one said it was going to be easy. By logging onto this here Blogger site, creating a new blog and advertising it to a few friends, you make a commitment to post at least sometimes. I have tried to keep it consistent, keep it fresh, witty, interesting. And it is difficult. You go through highs and lows, just like anything. I want to take the time out now though to call some people out, take some names, give a sort of assessment of blog life between commonly linked blogs. Maybe this will breathe some life into some pathetic situations.

What started off as a promising blog about politics, style, fashion and other daily musings slowly started to deteriorate in the beginning 2008 into a sad display of a working man's "lack of time." I wrote in February of that year "Where have you gone, Vinson C---?" Unfortunately, you haven't yet come back.

A free-spirited "spicy" blog started off promising to share with us "the shit that occurs [to the author] on a daily basis." I guess it is pretty obvious now that shit has stopped occurring to the author ever.

Blowing the aforementioned and soon-to-be mentioned blogs out of that water with the days-per-blog average, the author of "moments" felt that was not good enough to keep gracing us with his (a)musings. Lack of comments drove him away. What will drive him back?

"What he does" must be not post blogs. What started off as an attempt to jumpstart the flailing "Christopher Robert Myself," ended up as flailed as the original.



The moral of the story:

STOP ACTING LIKE ASSHOLES AND START POSTING!

That's grammatically incorrect. Listen, I'll try to start it up again this weekend. Just for you.

You're definitely an asshole. You can try to inspire me without calling both of my blogs failures. Next time I see you, you should close your vagina-ears because I may have a couple things to say.

or "flail"

Don't think I like either one.

DAT said...

i didn't call you a failure!

just a flailure!

Miz said...

and your math is off. How do I have the highest "days per post?"

My dude, it's masala. Like the spice. Not marsala like the wine. White people are wonderful.
