Maybe I don't suck

Not that I have the courage to actually enter my blog based on what I have found, but after reading all about The Blog Thunderdome, and in absolute boredom tody, I went looking at other blogs, which I rarely do unless they have been recommended by a blog I like. I will say that most of the blogs I read daily are not linked to from here, and for that I apologize. I keep forgetting to update over there.

ANYWAY according to the creators of the Thunderdome, most blogs suck and they give lots of examples of sins committed. I imagine I have indeed committed several of them, including blogging for the sake of blogging and yes, this whole thing might be narcissistic, but if you won't love yourself, who will?

I'm not going to pretend to love every blog I read based on the fact that one I do love has recommended it. And I will also admit that if you don't update your blog at least once every couple of weeks, you fall off of my list permenantly because once you are gone, I forget you. Except Sargini. I checked in on him every day. And his Snarkiness. I knew he'd be back eventually, and he popped in here periodically too.

so, I hit the "Next Blog" button. and discovered that there are a lot of blogs out there in foriegn languages. Since I only speak English (I have a repetoir in other languages too, but nothing fluent. Mostly I can cuss. and I can say "I have a frog" in something like ten different languages. But this does not help me) I also looked at the blog update thingy.

I discovered that they are correct over there at the Blog Thunderdome. many blogs out there do suck. a lot. One reminded me of a boyfriend I used to have that talked incessently about his computer. A language I also do not speak, not being a tech head.Another appeared to have been written by a 13 year old that only speaks in instant messaging terms.

So for you, and my ego, I hope that the crap that pours forth from my fingertips provides some amusement once in awhile. I am flattered that anyone comes here to read my thoughts. Many of you are here because I left messages on your blog. Chances are, if I'm leaving messages, I like you. I'm enjoying reading about your life. Thank you for giving me a glimpse and a connection to someone outside my normal realm.

should any of you happen to lose your bid in the Thunderdome, I'll miss you, and see you when you return to the blogging world.

Ps, I may try to sell you soap once in awhile, but I promise that I won't try to sell you a cafepress T shirt with my face on it. I mean, I wouldn't wear it, why would you?

If we didn't like your blog, we wouldn't keep coming back...

That's the thing about a blog. It's YOUR blog, and who gives a flying rat's ass if someone else says what you're doing is "wrong"? Fuck them, I say.

Besides, you aren't terrible. I don't have terrible friends. That includes Jen, the debater.
