Why I Don't Read Your Blog (and you don't read mine)

We can do better than this bullshit bait-n-switch.

Afriend just informed me that in the movie version of our truffle heist (don't ask), I should be played by actor Stephen Root. Don't get me wrong, but I never thought of myself of a Root kind of guy. Maybe I'm mistook. It would not be the first time. That said, someone else recently mentioned that I should be played by Philip Seymour Hoffman. I really don't know what to do now. I'm all in a'tangle over this. 

I share this foolishness with you to share this next foolishness with you: I'm trying to figure out how to do less or even do nothing online. Perhaps I should stop being The Great Thru-put that I have been and, instead, generate only occasional original content. 

I just don't know. All I know is you don't read my blog and I don't read yours. In part it's because of blogs that go something like this: 


Here follows a post about donuts and candy canes that, only in the last paragraph, mentions your mother simply to say that your mother should be making more donuts or candy canes. 

Oh, and don't forget to mention that the media/government/church/higher education is to blame. 

We can do better than this bullshit bait-n-switch.

A while back I mentioned that I needed to do this internet thing better. I've pondered the issue of addiction. Hell, that's a pretty reasonable question given my track record with other things. But, there's something else afoot for me in this whole Teh Intertubes thing. I'm still trying to put my finger on it. I Facebook until it hurts my brain. I read article after article and it only frustrates me. Facebook doesn't want you to see stuff there either, but that's another issue. 

Suffice it to say that I don't read your blog and you don't read mine. And it's not only because blogs are passe, but because I seldom say anything worth reading here. I waste my time here. I waste my time on Facebook. I waste your time here. I waste your time on Facebook. 

This, again, assumes you can find me on Facebook. Nevermind.

It's simple. I should be generating better content if I want this Teh Intertubes thing to work. So, instead of simply being an informational thru-put, I am going to hunker down and focus. I will be reading your blog and I will be posting (God help me) better content here.

So, I'm going to focus

Shut up. It's not funny! 

Okay, maybe a little. But still . . . 

. . . I am now a pirate and this is my ship. 

If you want to find me, I'll be here. The connection will likely be slow, but that's okay with me.
