A Trip Down Memory Lane...
I was tagged by Micgar to talk about how I got into blogging and why I do it. I think I did a post about this once, but I figure I can do it again for any new readers that may have happened along. For my older readers, this may be a rehash, so you may not want to bore yourselves with it.
Back in June of 2006, I had started a MySpace page for some unknown reason. I think it was out of pure curiosity. There, I started a little blog-like thing where I did short synopses for really disgusting movie adaptations for TV shows, a few of which can be found earlier on this blog. They were so bad that I restricted them to invite only. Around that time I got a note via MySpace from an old school friend and world-famous blogger, Grant Miller. He told me how he had this hugely popular blog that everyone loved, so I checked it out. I figured if Grant could do it, why not me? That's how my blog was born.
As you can tell if you look at my first few months of posting, I did not get a lot of traffic. That started to change after I guest-blogged for Grant while he was on vacation in July of '06. I did a fucking amazing job and enticed some new readers to my own blog. From there I discovered many of the blogs I frequent to this day. My links list is chronological, so you can tell the order in which I happened upon people.
I decided to do it mostly because I thought it would be fun. I like to try to be funny, but when it comes to humor, I have only one requirement: that I think it's funny. It's nice if what I write makes other people laugh, but it has to at least make me smile to make it on the blog. Of course, not all of my stuff is funny. I like to talk politics and religion a bit because they interest me. I also love documentary films and films in general, so every once in a while, I like to highlight a few of them. As I've said before, the rewards of starting this blog have been many. I have made new friends, re-established old friendships, and met a girlfriend that has since moved from far away to live with me. I also have a scorecard that may be helpful. I also have a seriously anal personal website that you're welcome to check out. It's linked up at the top on the right.
I still enjoy trying to come up with shit to put on here, but I do admit it gets more challenging as time passes. If y'all have any questions, I'll be happy to answer them.
