My stats are ridiculously low… at least here on WHUZZUP. I hear that same complaint on a lot of blogs I visit too. Like people went off on summer vacation, and never came back. (Most likely it’s “Supply and Demand”. I couldn’t *possibly* visit every site I link to in one sitting. And I’m sure I’ve pissed off everyone at this point to insure I’m not a “must read” anywhere.)
Elsewhere, my stats dictate it’s painfully obvious that the people want escapism and entertainment.
You may think I’m out of my mind for saying this… but I’m relieved.
This takes the pressure off of me HAVING to write here constantly. I have way better things to do, like unroll a 2004 redesign (or three with a “skinning option”), make much-needed repairs on my fonts, free stuff, and e-cards sections… bring back the “The Guestbook FROM Hell”.
And most of all, not have to discuss politics. I hate talking politics.
It turns people off as much as my flame wars did.
2004 Predictions: If you thought blogland was ugly with the Iraq war… you ain’t seen nothing yet. The Presidential race will be the nastiest viper pit of mudslinging, and emotionally immature and ignorant turdfest imaginable, and the web will definitely be one of the frontlines.
As much as I’d love to slam back at all of the “bad asses” who are just beginning to be aware of world events, and are suddenly “experts”… I’d rather leave that to the pros.
Being nasty will only backfire in the end. My strategy will not be one of viciousness (sorta), but rather the grand American tradition of satire and warped humor. Much like my “Breaking News Report” of when Bush launched an air attack and annhilated half of Sesame Street (when Bert’s involvement with Osama bin Laden was uncovered two years ago. “Operation: Rubber Duckie”. Remember that? Too bad, it was a classic. It’s gone now.).
When you have a guy seeking to rule the free world who was best known for waving at Stevie Wonder… it’s almost too easy.
(Ok, he didn’t *really* do that… but admit it, the visual image just made you giggle. I heard it.)
Sick of HAVING your patriotism questioned? Tired of the right-wing bullies?
I feel my comment on Bad Attitudes Journal bears repeating:
[Gov. Howard] Dean is like a modern-day “Man of Steel”, the harder they hit him, the harder the bullets bounce. I wish I could vote him in as President in right now (Bear in mind I am FAR FROM a Liberal or Democrat).
Talk about “honesty” and “dodging issues”, Dean has 16 Questions for President Bush… I’d be amazed if he answered one.
10.2 Months is a long time, and the public is very fickle with a short memory. It’s still anybody’s race.
Again, I stress this is merely my opinion.
Vote for whoever you want… as I most certainly will.
But please register to vote, and exercise this priviledge.
EricBrooks.Com® – I’m not “anti-war”. I’m “anti-**THIS**-war”. Believe it or not, there is a difference.
