I've been blogging for about 16 months now, and before I shuffle off this mortal coil I thought I would do a bit of a retrospective and share the deets of my experience for the benefit of all you young players out there.
LESSON #1: Do not use "deets" and "shuffle off this mortal coil" in the same sentence. I'm hella Shakespearean, yo!
LESSON #2: Whenever you are feeling uninspired, unappreciated, and like you are ready to throw in the towel, write a post like this one telling everyone how you are *this close* to quitting and wait for the comments to roll in telling you are fabulous you are, how your readers could never make it through the day without you, and how they would gladly host a telethon to raise money for you if you would just reconsider and please please please please don't go-oh-oh-oh.
You miserable bitches.
Reading lots of other people's blogs every single day and commenting on every single one of their posts is a great way to:
a) Drive traffic to your own blog.
b) Make lots of new friends and learn from their experiences.
c) Kill those pesky first 18 years of your child's life.
When putting #3 into practice, you can increase your pleasure a thousand-fold by engaging in "blog-splorting". This is a term that I coined to describe the highly entertaining practice of shitting on someone that has commented ahead of you just to see if they come back and discover your little buried treasure.
Feel free to use these examples:
"HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Anonymous is dumb." Or "LOL myboo313! And by that I mean Log Off Loser!" Or the always applicable "Big Daddy wears ladies underpants."
I'll be sharing more of these
