I Can't Get Behind That!

Feelin' kinda... Redundant Music: I Can't Get Behind That!

I have never blogged before. There are a few reasons as to why. First, I don't frequently feel the need to advertise. Second, I figure I spend enough time on introspect, to then convert my introspect into outrospect seems redundant and tiring. Third, I really loathe the word "blog." It just sits there in the bottom of your mouth, like the loogie you were going to let loose before the teacher started watching you.

But, Tanner went to all this trouble to go blog-tastic, and I feel it is my duty as friend and troublemaker to gamma-test the shizzle out of his software, so I'll blog for a while. Who knows, maybe I'll grow to like it. After all, Mr. Darcy didn't think Jane would like French apples, but she did!

Here's a blog entry so Tanner can test e-mail updates... and the rest of you lucky subscribers can too!

I'm going to need to come up with a new blogging angle once the gamma-testing is over.

Same Ol' Schtick

Yet another blog entry to test more of Tanner's blog features. Gotta keep at it to find those bugs. Gotta keep pushing the envelope. Gotta keep stretching the boundaries. Gotta break 4:40.

I will need a new schtick soon for my blog, if I'm to keep blogging at all. Tanner's got the whole "I wrote this whole thing and you must respect me!" thing. The Normal has the "My very existence is the central rotational axis of this website as exemplified by the fact of my blog appearing on the front page" angle. Jayrock seems to be taking the "I'll flatter my blog with platitudinous sincerity" route. And I can appreciate all of those, truly. But once gamma-testing is over, what's to be my unique, blogarific signature? I mean, I don't even have any cats I could write about.

The Blog Stops Here

Feelin' kinda... New Bohemian Music: What I Am

The "Recent Comments" code done blowed up, but square-jawed Tanner fixed it pronto. I feel as though should have thought to test that, but I didn't think of it. Alas.

So that's about it. Blog gamma-testing is winding down. Things are pretty much a "go," or "green-light," or "ready for prime time," or whatever colloquial synonym you prefer. The time has come to ask, To blog, or not to blog? That is the question. What say you, ARFers? I'll consider any suggestions in the comments.

Feelin' kinda... just fine, thanks. Music: cpu fan whirr

I found another bug when my Loverboy joke backfired - underscores embedded in HTML get turned into hyphens. Also, HREFs in post previews are still wonky.

Tanner, you owe me a Coke Slurpee!


Goodbye, subscribers.

All right blogfans, after a minimal amount of deliberation I think I have some new thematic material for my blog, but I don't think it's going to interest anyone. In fact, it doesn't even interest me, so I'll completely understand if y'all want to unsubscribe to this blog as soon as your browser will let you.

Given that a)my time is extremely limited, b)I need to use said time as wisely as possible, c)I need to study for my math class in addition to working, and d)I don't really like studying for my math class in addition to working, I've come up with this idea: why not blog about class? That way, it's like studying, only lamer!

So, thank you to all my lovely subscribers, and I wish you well in your blog searching. Coming next: MathBlog!

This used to say something funny but then Tanner's sight got hacked and instead it linked to an Indian porn site. Alas!
