This is the fastest entry ever…
Another week set to blaze by and another quick lunchtime update.
(Should I rediscover my inner child or uncover my sanity I will attempt a return to incubated well thought out posts)
Noticed an entry about blogging which immediately spun into why I dislike Blogspot. It never fails that when I come across an entry I wish to reference the permalink is somehow broken or unavailable. At first I wanted to vent my frustrations on the blog owner who I perceived as lazy or inept at keeping proper archives, but more & more I’m beginning to think this is just the price those folks pay for using Blogspot.
Visit this website and scroll the page (or search) for The Ten Commandments of Blogging. I thought I’d throw in my few bits before heading back to the office.
A Successful Blog Requires The Following:
1. Frequently updated content like Acidman. I don’t know anyone who is all over their blog like this man.
2. Your own innovative writing style like Tony Pierce. Often imitated, never duplicated, this master of the Photo Essay leaves audiences always wanting more.
3. Topics everyday folks can relate to, but written in excellence like Ryan McGee. Number one on my bloglist and the reason I strive to post on this very domain.
4. Comments from women who want you and guys who want to be you like Ryan Perry. Few can post about the benefits of oral sex and have volunteers lined up waiting.
5. Cam girl appeal without all the attention whoring & pop-ups like the Mad Pony girls. Not all websites run by young ladies have to include pouty lips and underwear dancing; some actually do well with hip, original writing.
6. Tons of content helps like Paul Katcher. This blog has something for everybody.
7. Posting without apologies like Ryan (The Ward). Having friends & family read his blog doesn’t prevent this blogger from putting fingers to keyboard for your reading pleasure.
8. Finally, you can simply be funny like Rob Wanska. I ever do the blogger road trip thing, he’s one of the first I visit (at Hooters) for a beer.
OK, time to get back to work.
That’s why I like you Wood (uh, huh huh – I said I liked Wood) – you don’t let your true dislikes get in the way of a measly bribe. Integrity, schmintegrity, eh my friend?
Now that the ass clowns at my web host seem to have a working server, I may actually be able to post something so these fine people actually have something to look at when they click my link.
(BTW – if anyone knows how to install MT and would be willing to help me, I will officially be your best friend. You can email me or IM at wanska13)
I watched the video and will email you my thoughts as soon as I can, AJ. Let me say, though – funny stuff. Great video as well. Whoever shot the video ought to be in Hollywood . . .
Rob – Will send you MT instructions after I get home from work.
CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW?
Good. In the off chance you haven?t noticed ? and judging from the overwhelming amount of emails wondering about my well being that I didn?t receive ? you haven?t, my site is finally back up after an enjoyable five day…
A-JAY thanks for the props man. you forgot to include your uncanny ability to review things with an open mind and unbiased opinions. that should be #9.
You might try using this as a permalink to the “Ten Commandments of Blogging” post that you were pointing out. If you read just a few posts above the one you wanted to link to on my Blog*Spot blog, you’ll find several posts indicating that I moved my blog to a Blog-City location just a couple of weeks after I wrote “The Ten Commandments of Blogging.”
Archiving trouble on Blog*Spot was a major reason for moving my blog. If you still want to vent your frustrations at my “laziness” or “ineptness” in maintaining archives, drop me an email.
By the way, thanks for dropping by the old site and for mentioning the “Ten Commandments of Blogging”. Feel free to drop by the new site anytime.
That’s a good list! Although as much as I tried, I could never get into Tony Pierce.
