Blog Tip – Epic Posts Are Not Necessary

Tastes like According To Jim

Despite renewing my domain name and year long contract with my web-host nearly a month ago, I was still a not so proud owner of a(nother) never updated blog. You could buy the season three DVDs of that shit awful show, According to Jim and still be spending your money in better ways than on a website that isn’t updated or looked at by anyone else on the planet (besides me).

With this said, today I realized not all posts need to be well thought out, epic, or mind-blowing (not that any of my posts have been any of those things). In fact, most people don’t have the attention span or time to read an epic post. Straight to the point is the only way people can consume information now. Thanks to Twitter, anything over 140 characters is a Bible-long novel.

I’m still not sure what blog posts should be, but if I can eliminate everything they shouldn’t be, than perhaps I will have a blog that people will be LOLing and OMGing over while I sit and reflect on the poor grammatical skills of the next generation and watch the nickels pour in from the Google Ads that will one day be adorning (littering) the pages of this site. All this without ever mentioning which celebrity is fucking which celebrity behind some other celebrity’s back. Refreshing thought, isn’t it?

I started as a means to keep my creative juices flowing, but my creative juices (and this site), are looking a lot more like the milk that’s been sitting in the back of my fridge since I left it out all day, smelled it, winced, and then put it in the back of the fridge so I wouldn’t have to be the one to throw it out.

Anyway, I’m back on the updating horse. The one that looks a lot like your aunt Gertrude.  Check back. You might (not) be disappointed.
