Blogs Are Stupid

Doesn't anyone believe in Dear Diary anymore? What happened to the joy of putting actual pen to paper? And why does every ordinary Jane and John think they can write well enough to burden the world with their scribblings? It’s a mystery that badly needs solving. My first entry contains my thoughts about blogging and will set your expectations. The rest will probably be stream of consciousness garbage, much like you’ll find on any other blog. Perhaps we will both come away enlightened.

If one is a novice blogger, and has only a rudimentary understanding of HTML, despite the fact that one's husband is a twenty year programming veteran and can read and write code that resembles a polyalphabetic subsitution cipher of such startling complexity that Robert Langdon himself would throw up his hands in defeat, (Remember when you were a kid and would pretend to be an expert typist who could type like a gazillion words a minute without even glancing at the keys?) one should take a few steps to ensure the integrity of one's blog before endeavoring to tamper with said code on a lark, to impress one's husband with one's new found html skills.

First, save the original customized template in a word document or notepad. Second, remember that there is a "clear edits" button before commencing to freak out. Third, be cognizant of the fact that the preview function is a lying son of a whore and cannot be trusted. Fourth, be prepared to throw one's self at the mercy of one's spouse, and resist the urge to backhand him with one of those cast iron frying pans they seem so enamored of here in the south when he chortles at your charming ineptitude.

Now back to your originally scheduled and perfectly adequate blog.

    Good lord BA! You gave me a start! I was afraid to scroll down. Thought you lost it all.

    I see you didn't. I am happy and contented again.
