Today, I want to be a bit reflective about this silly, goofy thing I do here every day.
First of all, it is EVERY day. Yep, since January 1st, I've posted something every single day. In 2014, I posted 300 times over the course of the entire year. So there were 65 days where I didn't. But this year, so far there's something here every day. You know, for that kind of dedication, you would think I would be more of a beloved world treasure among the internetatti.
When I began this blog in March 2013, I really didn't think of what my mission statement for this endeavor would be beyond "Write about whatever pops into my damn head." And so far, I seem to be sticking to that.
Posts range from Doctor Who geekfests, sarcastic introspective musings, off the wall who the hell knows that I'm doing (wait til you see what crazy stuff goes down on this blog next week!) and rage filled rants against the stupidity and the evil this world seems to have in abundant supply (like yesterday's post on the murder of 9 people in Charleston SC.)
One thing I thought I would do more of is kvetch. With a title like I'm So Glad My Suffering Amuses You, you would think this blog would be filled with more posts on waiting in long lines, bad drivers, terrible customer service experiences...you know, me bangin my head in frustration with First World problems.
But really this blog is about everything and nothing which is a fairly accurate representation of my thought processes.
I don't think much about interactions with this blog. Mostly I just assume I'm talking to myself. But occasionally I look at the blog stats to see what's going on. Below is a list of the top 10 posts accessed through Thursday, June 18th.
Two of them are relative newcomers: Untold Tales is a very brief Doctor Who/Star Trek mash up script while Surreal Knock Knocks Jokes is what you think it is and yes, it's also not as funny as you think it is too.
