why oh why must . . .

everybody have a blog?

foolish, foolish idea

I spent a while browsing the results of The Bloggies this afternoon. Bad idea. Now I'm in a 'what's the use, everybody else writes better', 'my blog sucks' type mood. Its a good job there's some haagen-dazs in the freezer.

But while fun, ice cream is no solution so instead I'll have to print out and read this post, from Tony Pierce, every night.

how to blog by tony pierce, 110

1. write every day.

2. if you think youre a good writer, write twice a day.

3. dont be afraid to do anything. infact if youre afraid of something, do it. then do it again. and again.

4. cuss like a sailor.

5. dont tell your mom, your work, your friends, the people you want to date, or the people you want to work for about your blog. if they find out and you'd rather they didnt read it, ask them nicely to grant you your privacy.

and so on for a full 30 tips.

And, on a side note, hands up if you think that "Jamster!" and whoever came up with that bloody "crazy frog" thing should be put in stocks and have rotten fruit thrown at them?

In fact, add the guy who invented ring tones for mobiles in the first place.

Don't think of it like this;

'Everyone else blogs better than me'

Think of it like this;

'Everyone else is shite'.

You'll feel much much better. I think as far as a 30 step guide goes, bollocks to it. All I've learnt from blogging is, you must unlearn what you have learnt - no hold on, that was something else. Me and Tina at Cakesniffer are always having this debate - why the fuck do we do this? Mainly 'cause we're all frustrated writers at heart, or total wall flowers by day that like to express by night. Hmm... this comment hasn't helped at all has it? - And that is another joy of blogging.

echoing your "by day /by night" thing, I've been thinking for a while that there's something a bit odd about bloggers in general.

Why aren't I in a pub? Shouldn't I be doing real work? etc...

plus, if you do something bad you can just shutup shop, disappear and start a second or a third or a fourth blog, where I become "Mark Green from Chicago" or something.

You know thats true. Cowardly lot that we are. I'm actually a top flight UK based entertainer with a string of hit comedy shows under my belt, not a pathetic nobody from nowheres ville. Erm...

the problem is that we're all surrounded by unimportant people and we forget that actually we are terribly important and this current situation is just a stepping stone. We soon to be rushed off to out rightful place, loved by millions and rich beyond our, perfectly realistic, dreams.

Personally, I've got my eye on a nice brownstone in New York city. Maybe something with a Park view...
