Why You Should Write A Blog: (Subtitled: I Have No Life, So Let Me Share It)

m

If you look closely you’ll see me at the very bottom of that “blogk hole.”

Yes, every so often I ask myself that very same question. Which is, “WTF! Why am I writing this stupid blog?” So, I’ve determined that there are a number of reasons why I write it, and perhaps I should share them with you if you’ve ever considered writing one yourself. Which may convince you to either write one, because you have absolutely no social life, or write one because, um…..because you have absolutely no social life.

Remember…….anyone can write a blog.blog 7

So I’m here today to encourage all of you prospective blog writers to take the plunge. Either off of the tallest building in your town because you have absolutely no social life, or to write a blog yourself so that you can tell everybody who reads your blog about your inability to have any type of social life. Either way, you’ll accomplish something at least.

Which is a really good blog, or your name in your local newspaper saying that you jumped off a very tall building because you had absolutely no social life. Your choice.

An example of a blogger not having both a social life and a sex life

So first of all, what prompted me to start writing this stupid blog? Besides having absolutely no social life what so ever. Well, here are a few reasons which you may want to employ as well.

1. I retired and had a lot of time on my hands, which my other half realized, and had six gazillion household and yard projects for me to do, so I figured if I wrote a blog each day, it was an excuse not to do those chores. Eventually she caught on to my plan and in the nick of time I devised a new one. Write a few actual books that no one would buy but got me out of all those chores. That one worked.

(sigh)

2. Nobody ever listened to my opinions on various subjects except the paperboy, mail carrier and my friend Speedy at my local gas station. So I figured if THEY were listening to my opinions, surely there must be other paper boys, mail carriers and gas station people who would read my blogs. As it turns out, the only people who read my blogs are perverts because I write about boobs every now and then. Oh yeah, and those giant inflatable dolls.

For me, it’s pizza….

3. The most important reason I decided to start my own blog was those constant voices in my head. Which is why I have a T-shirt that says, “I do whatever the voices in my head tell me to do.” Which I figure is a good defense plea should those voices ever tell me to rob a bank or something. Figure I’d get off on an insanity plea, wind up in a padded room somewhere, and at least be able to write this blog undisturbed. As long as I’m not in a padded jacket. Or I don’t face a firing squad.

Promise….I’ll type it real fast…

4. The final reason. I have absolutely no social life. Works for me.

Now seriously…..which is somewhat difficult for me, but I’ll try, here’s how to write your own useless blog.

First of all, you could start your blog on your own website. If you have one that is. But, most of us slugs don’t. So, the next best step is to go with what I consider to be the best blog hosting site on the planet. “WordPress.” Unless, of course, you have access to other planets. I say this because some people I’ve met in my life are definitely waaaaay out there.

WordPress has all the tools you’ll need to write all the stupid inane stuff that comes into your mind. Spell check editing, the ability to attach your blog to links to social media sites so that they can read your inane postings, a comments section so that people who read your blog can comment on your inane postings, a daily listing of how many people are reading your inane postings, what countries are reading your inane postings, and a breakdown of how many people per day, month and year are reading your inane postings.

m

Yeah, in your freakin’ dreams maybe…..

What this all does is separates the intelligent people from the stupid people who read your blog. So basically you wind up with a bunch of people who don’t have a clue from various countries reading your blog because they don’t have a social life either. Works for me.

WordPress, in my opinion, is the best way to begin experimenting with your blog venture. In fact, it’s so easy, it should be entitled, “Blogging For Dummies.” Which, I  just happen to fall into that category.

Now, as far as perhaps making a few bucks off of your writing. Well, far be it from me to tell anyone how to make a few bucks. Why? Because in four years of blogging that’s all I’ve ever made….a few bucks. That’s simply because rather than clutter up my very important blog writing with advertisements, I’d rather give it to my readers for free and hope they make a donation for creative effort. Or, because they feel sorry for me for being simple-minded. Works sometimes….but not too often.

However, you can opt to have advertisements on your blog site. Your choice. But….at least go with something that will bring you in some bucks. You obviously want people to click on those ads, for which you get compensated for by the advertiser. So, choose carefully. Try to go with something that’s unusual. Like discounted marijuana plants offering a two for one deal or something. Or, bootleg Viagra. Just a tip.viagra1

In conclusion, writing can be enjoyable, as well as getting you out of doing household chores. And, you can blog at your own pace. Every day, every other day, once a week, once a month, or when something just hits you. And if you have a hobby, say like taking photos with your camera at night while peeping into people’s bedroom windows, you can post your work on WordPress. Just a suggestion mind you.

So, good luck if you decide to join me in bloggersphere lant. (as Lawrence Welk would say) Visit “WordPress.com” and check it out. Um, but don’t say I sent you.

Only because they continuously refuse to highlight me on their “Freshly Pressed” site, (reserved for really great bloggers) because those WordPress monkeys think I’m a black sheep and are hoping a wolf will come along and do me in. To which I say, “Baaaaaaaaaaaa.”

In case you haven’t noticed, I “AM” the wolf…….

    Ok, so, I may have boobs, but I’m no pervert! Nor am I a paper boy, mail carrier or gas station people! I still get a great lot of giggles from your writing and I think WordPress should be featuring your blog on Freshly Pressed! Sadly, I’ve not made it there either….pass the wine!

  3. I think a lot of this is why I don’t want to have a blog about ME. Or one where I am obliged to write a lot of words. Or indeed any words… And the one I’ve got now is the only one that I’ve stuck with. 🙂 then I can be a smartass on other people’s blog commentary fields, that seems to cover my needs for public banter. 😀
